Interesting how we can all have such different opinions.


Anyone have any experience with 3636 last? I'm thinking of ordering some whiskey shell longwings, was thinking P2 last, but then that might be a little too sleek for such a shoe.

My main problem with most chunky lasts from Trickers, Alden etc is that they don't seem to offer any arch support. What's the 3636 like in this regard?

shell is also messing with my head wrt sizing.

what do you understand by arch support?

my kiss shoes are on a very similar last than the 3636. imo, it's ideal when you have a wider forefoot and you enjoy some toe space. in my interpretation of vass lasts it's like sizing up in width from the p2 . iirc, fellow member concordia has some first hand experience on this topic. btw, it's a very manly last, quasi.

i would say: go for it.

I am a very manly...man.


I have a medium-high instep and a slightly low-volume forefoot. F last fits me very well.

Although I love the look of the F last for oxfords and sleek 3-eyelet bluchers, I want shoes to wear casually with jeans and cords. They would have to be bluchers, with at least 5 eyelets. Double leather sole etc. I have one pair of trickers that i love and look great with cords, bt the fit is not 100% perfect - they are roomy in the forefoot, and then have no built up arch at the waist. Also, i only want handmade shoes from now on.

Would the chunky aspect of this style of shoe that makes it perfect for casual wear also mean it wouldn't fit me well?

alright, i got you. the arch support for your trickers can be done by a good cobbler. this is no rocket science. i learned it from one and now i do it myself. you can either use cork or leather.

my gut feeling tells me that the p2 would be better right out of the box. if you find someone(see above) who is able to fit your shoes, the 3636 is doable.

Traditionally i hate split toes but i must admit i'm coming around to them, and the Vass version makes for a compelling case.

I am thinking about it. At the moment it's longwing vs plaintoe, with Norweger the dark horse. In whiskey shell.

Also gonna try out a similar pair in number 8 shell from Piergiacomi, and if that works out, tan suede and grey calf. Basically i'm finding that i find leather soled shoes more comfortable than sneakers, and i'd like to be able to substitute in casual shoes.

Cheers, I'd seen you mention that a few times, I will have someone try it out.

good to go out of the comfort zone sometimes-  the vass Norweger is outstanding in its class.

 

or  the Alt Vien, a bit eccentric, depends on yo style.  P2 ankle boot rocks too
