I'm starting to wonder if I should just give up trying to obtain a pair of Vass. I've read page after page on Vass last fittings and i'm still apprehensive about ordering a pair. There seems to be much debate on the U-last and since Vass does half sizes I feel like I can't take any chances.
Is there anyone here that wears a US9D? Do you wear a EU42 or 42.5 on the U-last? What about the F last? I'm starting to think I like the F last better because it has a more rounded toe. I don't know if my feet can take punishment from a tapered toe box on the U last.
Tbh I would suggest just taking the plunge and see how it works out, I did and in the end they where half a size to big but since Vass exchanges them for you it isn't really a problem, besides the waiting.
