1. If I find a pair of shoes I like in stock at the shop in Budapest, will Vass be able to add steel toe taps 'on the spot' in the upstairs workshop others have mentioned?
2. (I can hear the collective groan) Any assistance on sizing? I'm usually a UK 11 in pretty much every EG last I've tried (except a suede pair I have on the 202 which are a 10.5), between a UK 10.5 and an 11 on different C&J lasts, and always a UK 11 in Trickers. I measure a UK 11E on a Brannock gauge, with a relatively slim heel compared to the rest of my foot.
I'm just weighing up a trip to Budapest to take my chances on styles but be sure of fit vs. faxing an MTO order with the opposite outcome.
