very, very nice
post #1787 of 12265
Somewhere in this meandering thread of 100+ pages, I noticed that people have the same problem as me -- I am super-keen on getting a pair of U-last shoes, but not sure what size I should wear. What's the best way to measure? I like long, narrow shoes, but want to be sure my feet won't get squished. So many of these Italian makers have sizes that are all over the place. I usually wear size 43 (or size 10) but bought a pair of Magnanni recently in size 8.5 and they fit me like a glove. Would appreciate any help!

Obviously, everyone's feet are different and so advice from one person won't necessarily help another.

Having said that, though, I usually take a US10/Euro 43 and whilst I can fit into a size 43 in Vass in the U-last without problems, I do prefer a size 43.5 as it just gives a little bit more room, including over the instep (and I have a high instep). Hope that this helps.

Looks great! Kolecho, are these yours? The combination of a medium size and the toe cap with punching makes the U last appear wider.

You usually wear a size 43 (sz 10), but 8.5 Magnanni is a curve ball???

A month or so ago, I bought my first pair of Vass: a lovely pair of Budapesters, on the Peter last, from Tombrone over on B&S.

However, on my third wear a slip on an escalator left me with a scrape on one of the toes. No matter what I did, nothing seemed to remove it. Having read the shoe snob blog a few times and knowing that its author polishes shoes at Gieves and Hawkes, I decided to see what he could do.


Here is the result (bearing in mind that these were originally plain cognac boxcalf):

^ where was the gash? (I guess that means good job).

i can see it, but your boy did a great job covering it up... if it's that hard to make out with an up close photo like that, i'd be it's completely unnoticeable when worn.

I recently sold my two pairs of black EG's and figured I could use a pair around the house. I thought these should work well both with suits and more casual outfits that could work with black shoes. Looking forward to wearing them one of these days!

Vass - F last - black shell cordovan monks - double sole tapering to single

Forgive the probably silly question from someone with no Vass experience, but are there Rendenbach soles the default for all Vass shoes? Or are those soles a special order item?

I believe JR's are the default leather sole for Vass these days, but I'd verify with Kolecho.

These look great - just got the same, but in calf and with white buckle.

Damn, those F monks were the last thing I needed to see.. It's an amazing last.

these are not default...they are optional, but i don't think there's an additional charge for them iirc
