Can anyone ID all the specs for this shoe? color/last/style? Trying to figure out which two shoes to go with for my first order. I was going to go with an oxblood plain captoe (ulast) and maybe this one? any other suggestions would be appreciated way too many options

Actually, I believe I am the owner of said shoes. Love 'em too! Thanks again, Kolecho.

In any case, 15 minutes on the ground there could save several months of faxes, postage, fund transfers-- and disappointments.

this.

btw, how did your balint experience went.

If I were someone who regularly traveled to Europe, I would certainly do this. I don't, so it will be hard to justify a trip from the left coast to Budapest just to try on shoes. (I don't even want to think what my wife would say.) In the meantime, I have to be in New York next week, so I think I'll see how the JL 8000 last fits in light of comments that its fit is identical to the U last.

Did the ladies at the shop say why the F last wasn't worth trying on? Was it the instep or the width?

Still can't get over how nice those p2 norwegians are. If i hadn't pre-ordered an ungodly amount of alden shell recently, i'd so be getting those on this order
