To have to go an entire size down, at least with Vass, just because your feet are on the smaller end of the scale seems illogical. Can anyone else with small feet corroborate bamboo's findings?

Nice shoes btw.

In Meccariello I am a 5.5UK, despite being a 6-6.5UK in most RTW shoes I buy.

If you are CJ UK 5, it is better.  I should be UK 5 in CJ. I am 5.5 in EG.

( I experienced this with VASS too).  First test shoes were too big too, and I told Riccardo it seems more than half size too big, but both of us did not realize the degree of problem at that time.  Anyway, he remade the test shoes and final shoes for me.

Hi.  Converting to EUR works fine.  I am EUR 38 in Vass.  I think problem arises when European last maker converts EUR to UK.  Each increment of half size is 0.33 inch in UK and 0.26 inch in EUR and I think they start from larger size so cumulative differences gets bigger when you come down to smaller sizes such as 5 or 5.5.

if you don't have benefit of a test shoe at minimum, you're shooting in the dark

My new commission from Riccardo will be a version of John Lobb Paris St Crepin 2008. Riccardo hadn't done that type of decoration stitch before, so he made a test upper first, which is shown below. The final shoes will be made in the color Antique Tobacco. Have made some small modifications on my Novecento lasts since my first purchase. The pic was taken a couple of weeks ago, so hopefully they aren't that far off from finishing production.

 

 

 

BTW: @Gianni Cerutti I saw your finished bespoke gladiators on Riccardos Tumblr, absolutely stunning!
