That's wierd.

 

I'm UK9,5/10 in EG 888 and 202, UK9,5 in C&J 337 and 341, UK9,5 in Carmina Forest (although UK9 in Rain) and EU43,5 in Vass F-last

based on my experience - don't order Vass in EU size, just tell Rezso your UK size in C&J.

You sized down on F?

 

It's going to take a while. It's a group buy with a few other people and I'm not sure if Vass has even started on the shoes yet (I doubt it).

 

I don't currently have any (I sold the two pairs that were size EU 41 on the F), but I'm fairly confident I am a size EU 40 on the F, and EU 40.5 on the U.

Well, Vass told you they use the same convrersion as C&J or Church's, but that does not say anything about your size.

Vass recommends sizing up a half size for the U and K, period. This is and has always been their advise. The last is designed that way.

The 'normal' way to determine your size would be to take your regular size in a regular shoe, and convert this to EU size. Then that is your size in F last. For the U and K, you should add 0.5

My advise is this:
When you take a look at your shoe closet, and you're all like: wow these look exactly like the U last; and when you have narrow feet and mostly wear narrow shoes with a square and elongated toe, then take the same size in U!

When you take a look at your shoe closet and, like me, you see bulky shoes with round toes, a la Church's, then size up a half size for U!

I thought so also. The general consensus in this forum is that you should get half a size smaller for F last, than your size in U last. But when I tried the F last in 42.5 in the Vass shop, it felt very tight and uncomfortable.

Here's my logic...you say you're a uk6.5 in C&J (E width I assume as nearly all C&J Ive seen are E width)...that would make you a US7D....or a size 40. Since you need to size up half for Vass U Last, perhaps you're a 40.5.

 

But I also like the Trombone method...very dramatic.

Actually UK sizes tend to be run a full size larger (using US sizing as a benchmark), and hence, a 6.5 UK would be a US 7.5, and a UK 7, would be a US 8.

What on earth is a trombone effect?

You sized down on F?

For small feet in size UK 6 -7 there is absolutely no need to size up or down for U and F lasts. The shoes he has ordered will be too big for him. UK-6.5 is not EU 40.5 it is eu 39.5 in VASS size, may be EU 40 if you have a high instep, but 40.5 in today's VASS sizes ....you'd be swimming in them.
I wear UK7 and after ordering EU 40.5 I had to sell them all, they were so big.
I was in VASS store 3 days ago and tried both U and F , both were EU 40 and fit me quite right. Hope this will help you to decide.

He he...it will probably confuse them even more. I refuse to believe Vass sizing is so way off the international norm. As a US9D, I have always fit into size 42 in EVERY brand I've tried.. I can imagine it being a little more generous or smaller but not by too much. I once mistakenly ordered a size 43 derby from Cuccinelli and of course they were on the noticeable side of large...I have put in a size 44 insole and worn them ever since...they fit great. 

 

I would say order one pair first and use it to figure out your size more accurately if at all necessary.

Hi everyone

 

After a most disappointing adventure with a well known Ebay seller (they have been helpful and tried hard but because of wrong size and import duties for both ways which I had to pay for I ended up without shoes but a loss of about 100 GBP) I have today received a pair of Old English Oxfords in black boxcalf on F-last, double sole and flush metal tip.

 

They are very very beautiful. Size is nearly perfect, a tiny bit too much room above my toes. I fear sizing down half a size would be too small.

 

Mr. Reszö Kuti was very helpful and quick with replies to all my stupid questions and delivery was in time quite fast. Waiting time was barely four weeks!

 

Very happy here. Thanks to all for the knowledge provided in this thread, helped me a lot. Wish I had found this before ordering the first time.

 

Florian
