Yanko - Made In Spain Shoes - Page 28

post #406 of 605
Gents,

Another quick question if I may. Going to buy a couple pairs out of interest, always love to add a different brand to my collection.

I wear 6.5 uk in vass F last and 7 in U last. Any fit recommendation on the 915 for me? Assuming uk 7...

Thanks as always.

uk8.5 on the 915.

Really? That much larger? Someone mentioned to me it's a similar fit to vass U last.

I would say UK 6.5 in your case. The 915 last fits on the roomy side

I beg you pardon, I wrote my size.:brick:

 

I meant uk 6.5.  Sorry

No worries, and thanks! So the 915 is a slightly chistled last similar to Rain? Do they have and sleek looking rounded toe lasts?

I think they might, depending on what you define as "sleek looking". Have a look here:

Otherwise, from what I've heard (I have zero personal experience with these brands yet), Andres Sendra is a very similarly priced, similar quality shoemaker from Spain as well. Their line has some sleek looking rounded toe lasts. Check Cooper, Evans, Jean:

Thank you, sir! In all honesty I am just looking for a blue shell MTO and sadly Rezso at Vass cannot order me in any from Horween. I do not fancy paying the huge MTO fee with carmina (I know they stock the whole cut blue, but I want a plain cap toe), hence why I am looking here.

Emil at Skolyx is incredibly helpful, so I think I shall take the plunge and give it a go!

Rain is sleeker.  915 is even more classic than F, IMO. I really like it for a formal shoe.

My conversations with Emil have probably been the best I've ever had with a "merchant". I use quotes because he feels like a friend advising you over email, not someone trying to sell you stuff. Can not stress how helpful he has been to me as well!

I wont hesitate to go with Yanko (Carmina 50% increase is crazy)

Any thoughts on this from people who have AE shoes and purchased Yanko shoes?

Which last did you get ?

 

I'm in the same boat. I only have my AE size to go on which is US 9D on the Strand last.  

 

Can you please update here and let us know how the sizing worked out for you. Thanks
