Very much so !! I got advised anything from 39 to 41.5 and just went with my gut UK6.5 EU40 and it worked out so I'm pleased and now know for future purchases.

These look great. Perhaps they're already in this thread, but what were the specifications, and if you don't mind, how much were they?

"rikod, since you've got Alden, AE, and Vass, how does your Barrie or AE 5 last compare to Vass lasts' shape and sizing?"

Very different, AE seems narrower with low instep, Alden wider also low instep, Vass lasts higher instep. I wear US 8D in AE and Alden (Barrie 7.5D) and about 40.5 in Vass, all fit well.

Thanks! Do you take the same size in all of the Vass lasts?

OR
You could just trust me and order it on the F
The choice is yours

Having tried almost all lasts from Vass, I'd settle with F last if I had to choose one for comfort and looks.

Where to buy VASS shoes online and see the prices on them?

 

And comparing to EG, C&J, G&G will VASS go in that same level? Know nothing about this brand, but finding many shoes that I might wanna buy (but don't know where and how much they are)

 

Thanks!

1. Saint Crispin, EG Top Drawer

2. EG, G&G, Vass

3. Carmina, C&J

In other words, Vass is awesome and a relative bargain
