In addition to the uppers, the heal stacks are especially lovely, each showing their own personality and hand craftsmanship. I especially like the angled shape of the Maftei.

it's refreshing to see some interest for the craft and not to derail this thread, i'm not sure, if everyone is aware of this thread, which covers the austro-hungarian spectrum.

My left is longer than my right and this particular pair just rubs against my left big toe a bunch unfortunately. Should fit a standard US 10.5 D pretty well.

This pair passed the comfort test. I walked miles and miles in NYC (I don't have to walk much where I live). I wear them during the morning and afternoon for 3 out of 5 days and they felt great. They came back a little rough up smile.gif

They are serving their purpose well then. A little roughed up now and then is a good thing for a pair of rugged shell shoes. Treat 'em bad, REAL bad!

Those shoes are going to last pretty much forever. Clean them up well between sessions of abuse and they will be brilliant in a couple of years.

Wow - looked like shell from the photo. But upon enlarging the image I can see for myself that the creases are not those of a shell shoe. sorry shog[1].gif Oh well, CXL will look great all beat up too! satisfied.gif

I could use some advice on a potential MTO. I am thinking about having these boots made up: http://www.margoandralph.com/boutiquemargoandralph/product.php?id_product=268
My experience with Vass thus far is limited to the Budapester (a little tight) and the New Peter Last (better but might be slightly big). Boots are always a different animal and I tend to have room in the heel, although I can usually manage to wear. I'm wondering what last might work with these boots. I was told that the RTW model (which, sadly, is no longer available in the color I want) is on the U Last and that a 42 ought to fit. That's what I took in the shoes above. I don't want to make a mistake and eat the cost. Thoughts?

Yes CXL, I'm treating the just like shell, just clean with a damp cloth and brush, nothing else yet.

thanks, yes they are, i wear them a lot mostly with jeans. these are my only pair of CXL, they are quite resistant to water and other liquids.
