That kinda worries me. I've been thinking of ordering a pair of Vass online, one with a norwegian front and a reverse welt. I have a budapest style derby on the Peter last without the reverse welt. The Peter last fits me very well on the style of shoe I have. I was just wondering if changing the style of shoe and welt preferences would have an impact on fit. I guess the answer is that it depends, sometimes.
Oh, and sorry about the confusion with Alden and the Barrie last. I have their longwing but am not looking to purchase any additional Aldens. I just figured that Alden would be a good example since they are more readily available, atleast here in N. America.
