Vass Old English II, Oxblood, F Last, 43 EU

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Behold the finest pair of shoes I've ever had the opportunity to own. For me they are the absolute perfect balance of sleek styling and masculine elegance.

The Oxblood color shows its character outdoors...inside they look like a less severe black. This is fine with me as I have no issues with black shoes at all, especially considering that I've been needing a dark/black pair of Oxfords anyhow.

The 3-piece shoe trees I ordered were shipped separately and are on their way.

The last bit of good news is that the F last nails the fit I've been looking for: arch support, narrow heel, narrow mid-foot, slightly wider toe-box. I've yet to really break them in so there may be fit issues that will appear later on.

Absolutely stunning!! I anxiously await my pair of Old English II's on the U-last.

Stunning - very well done!!

You and I share the same taste in shoes, as you'll notice from an upcoming post of mine.

Those really are beautiful. So where does one buy Vass? I've heard so much about them, but I've no idea where to purchase them. Regards, Stephen

Awesome, I've been wanting to try a slightly narrower heel shoe as well. Beautiful, classic make up there.

I'm a big fan too. Is the 43 EU comparable to an Alden 10 B/D?

I have a pair of F last Old English Plain on as I type. Wear them in good health.

Great choice. I went for the same thing except on the U last.

Thanks for the kind words fellas.

Regarding sizing...these fit unlike any shoe I own. I'm basically a 10D or a 10.5C (US sizes) depending on the last. The closest fitting shoe to these would be my C&J Belgraves/337 in 9E UK. Hope that helps a little.
