Thanx. I do think they look like high instep shoes from the pictures I've seen here. If they have similar insteps, that's one parameter less to consider.

Regarding instep height, I went to a store and tried on shoes of lasts 236, 337 and 348 of C&J in sizes UK6 and UK6.5.
On all of the shoes the lacing was either fully closed or only of a very slight V-shape.
As you know I received a size 41.5 pair of Vass on the F last which was both too long and wide for my feet but the lacing was not fully closed even though the shoe was too big overall.
Thus I'd say at least on my feet the instep of the F last does not appear to be very high compared to other popular lasts.

Advice wanted from you Vass experienced guys. Which has the higher instep, F or U last?

Both the F and U have low insteps, but the F is slight bit higher.

Do you have a picture?

 

Is it the leather cracking, or did you get the Italian Finish with the high-shine on them when they came? It could be the polish cracking.

Hmm...I have always a pronounced V on shoes with closed lacing if I do not size up. Hence I have a majority of derbies in my shoe collection.
Do want to upgrade the oxford side, but without too wide V's.
Any suggestions on were to go in brands, lasts?

You might be right, and it might be the polish cracking. I didn't specify non-polished, so I presume they polish it by default?

I am afraid I am not yet familiar with enough lasts to give any advise.
Can just share the little experience I have made myself.
Do you live close to a big city where you could try on some of the more easily available brands?
If you are located in Sweden, maybe go to http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/?

A question on shoe care for antique cognac calf: is Saphir's neutral cream polish or mid brown cream polish better?

You want to stay lighter than what you currently have, unless you want a darker shoe.

Which last in VASS would correspond to this? I am going to recreate these shoes in VASS but with wearable heel pocket and soles.

If you have size 43+ feet, I'd use 3636.
