Nice, they look like a single sole, the topy makes the sole look a bit thicker

Will report on the P3 Alt Wieners. The promise was a longer and more graceful 3636.

I'd definitely be interested in about a comparison of the P2 and P3.

Some Vass soles look really thick. Do they not look as clunky in person?

The colour and the texture on that is amazing! Looks so 'strong' too... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Probably not buying that many shoes in the near future. So it was back to Western Union at a cost of an extra $25 or so. Of course there's no bank fee from CIB in this case, so the difference is less.

Oh, and I should ask Archangle13, what did you order?

 

CF used the Bank of America for both incoming (from my Singapore account) and outgoing transfers (to CIB bank). So I'm quite sure a transfer of funds to a Bank of America account in the US should be free... But then again, it's best to ask the CF team. That director of theirs never seems to sleep. plain.gif

They way they explained it to me is that I would have to initiate the transfer, which I couldn't figure out a way to do without paying a wire fee. Ffor comparison, with Western Union, I put my account information into their site and they request the funds from my bank at no charge. I'd be happy to find out that I'm confused about something. I suppose I could ask CF about this directly. That's likely my best bet.

Appreciate hearing about your experience. Those look like terrific shoes you have on the way to you.

Thanks! I simply used Internet banking. Funds arrived in CF a/c in 2 days, funds arrived in Vass account in 1 more day.

The P3 is the same length as the P2, so is in some sense more graceful than the 3636. From some angles, it looks just as nice as the P2, but it is still more of the country cousin, with higher sidewalls and a slightly more blunt toe. As with most of the Vass lasts, the Norweger pattern would probably make it look its best. Just as I don't much care for the oxfords I had made on the 3636, I suspect that they would not be a logical design for the P3 although they would certainly fit well.

My P3s Alt Wiens are generally more comfortable than the P2 Budapester-- the ball of the foot seems to have a bit more space to settle in, and while the toe is not as wide as on the 3636, it does offer a bit more wiggle room than the P2. There seems to be more room in the heel, although it's calf as opposed to the shell P2, which may take more time to break in.

Irrespective of fit, I do wish they had pulled the toe cap a little further back on the P3, however. That's a typical problem with shoe designers. It seems that only Tony Gaziano really makes the cap-toe on a Derby look fabulous these days.

Fantastic shoes !!

Curious if many people have tried on the K (from what I've read the hybrid between the U and F) and what they say about the fit.

I am a big fan of John Lobb 7000 and 8000 last...but I wanted something in between and JL wasn't helping much with their array of last

at the time....and when the K came out from Vass I instantly noticed it was a beautiful blended last that slips smoothly into my feet

contour and the birdseye view looks like a hybrid of JL 7000/8000 - but much sexier with attitude....

 

I am ordering more in the K than the U last recently,...

Pleasure Verniza,

 

I have always been told never compromise on 2 things in life.

Your shoes and your bed.  If you're not in one you're in the other....

 

If you wish to start a thread on Mattresses/Beds - I am sure to add some

value with my knowledge on memory foam/pocket sprungs...etc..etc...

Rikod,

 

Honestly, I am not a fan of this last.....but a big thumbs up to the leather choice. 

A rich grainy leather in French Bordeaux and noticed how expertly it's smoothed

out by the toes....My surgeon friend be all over this colour.
