On the other hand, I get great support and effortless fit with the Budapester last as well as 3636; those two are nearly the same except for the shape of the toe.


IMO there are significant differences b/w the two last other than the toe.As earlier mentioned Budapester is a shorter narrower last as well as a more tight fitting heel. The ball area of the foot is also significantly snug than same size 3636 lasted shoe.
So in essence if you have a wider foot going 1/2 size up will be a intelligent move.
P2 should not be compared to either of the above but more to the F last. The vamp and toe are much narrower with a lower instep than the F.

How do you find the fit of the 3636 vs other lasts such as the P2 and F?

 

Thanks. These are my 1st Vass shoes, so I can't compare lasts. I wanted a traditional last, but the Budapest looks a little clunky to me in pix (I've never seen them in person). So I picked 3636, & it sounds like I got lucky in choosing a last that works pretty well for me. I usually have rubbing at the instep, but not w/ these. My 1 small quibble w/ the shoes is that the black stitching for the goyser (recommended by Mr. Kuti) is all but invisible against the dark welt. I wanted something that would stand out a little.

Gentlemen, I spoke to Vass and they tell me that the Vass U last fits pretty much like Crockett and Jones and recommended that I get UK 6.5 if I wear that size for my shoes. Are their directions spot on? Do people tend to get the same size on Vass as they do on their English makes?

I wear 6.5 for Crockett and Jones (337 last -- Clifford) and Lobb (7000 last), BUT a 7 on G & G (smart toe last) though this is a boot. US 7 on the Barrie last (still roomy) and 6.5 UK for Meermins, Size 7 for Carmina (again, this is a boot) and I could go on ... but smile.gif

Any advice would be appreciated.

They didn't recommend anything. I told them I wear 6.5 UK in C & J, and they said that I'll wear the equivalent in EU. -- whatever that means. I was wondering if I should size up by 1/2 at all.

"Dear ...



First of all we would like to thank you for your interesting about Vass Shoes!

We can make and send shoes for you to London. We are shipping by FedEx and you can pay by wire transfer only. Usually we need 6 weeks to make a shoe ready. We can make any model any color for the standard price. We are using the same size scale like Crocket & Jones, or Church’s etc.

If I can help, or you have questions left, then please contact me!"

I'm pretty sure Spoo's use of U indicates that they are not on the K last

Didn't see the U. Thought they looked a little more rounded, hence my question.

Man. I want to order a few pairs of shoes, but it's frustrating not knowing whether I should size up by 1/2.

For what it's worth, I wear a similar size to you in C&J and Meermin. UK 6.5 in the Westfield/Hallam and UK6.5 in Ama. The Vass I ordered is on the U, in size EU 40.5.

 

I don't have the Vass shoes yet though, but I'm quite confident they're the right size. A pair of laced up balmorals in 41 on the F were about a size too big for me - so I'd say I'm a 40 on the F and 40.5 on the U.

 

Hope that helps.

Hope this helps. I am a UK8.5 on C&J 337 last. Size 9 on Carmina Robert, Alcudia and Simpson lasts. Size 43 on Vass U and F lasts.

Thank you. Let me know when it arrives.

You sized down on F?
