Trying to find the carmina loafers a new home, fantastic pair with tobacco suede and rubber soles, unfortunately they don't fit me. tried only for 10min inside on wooden floors, new with box.

forest last size 5, this is a MTO from gentlemensfootwear,  price is $420, I'll throw in international shipping too. 

outsole: 27cm x 9.5cm

Received my VASS U last oxford in size 38.5 from GTAshoeshine aka @jokb on Styleforum, Very nice shoes and I have always wanted a pair of Vass!

 

 

 

 

fit is overall fine, except that I have some small gapping between foot arch and the side of the shoes, that is the same case for my saint crispin's oxford too, I am quite satisfied with the fitting of heel cup, quite snug for my small heels:

 

The above pictures show the gapping, which is not profound, I presume that is because my low arch doesn't fit with the last in this area, I don't know if anyone else have the same problem, and if so, have you guys found any last that fit better?

I'm glad that you're loving your first (of many) pair of Vass shoes and that the overall fit work great for you. I do have a few shoes from 38 to 40.

As for the the excess leather, this is most likely due to the high instep of the U last. I would try putting a half insole (heel to mid arch) and see how they would fit. The only thing is that this would raise your heel a bit more than you'd like but still a good thing to try.

Right, but what about the gaps near the arch? have you ever noticed anything like these?

Thanks for the tips! I have tried the half insoles once, however they are rather hard and not very comfortable:facepalm:

How about a full sock liner?

Those Vass look absolutely lovely. Congrats!

Thanks! a full insole may put more stretch for the forefoot and toes, which does not have much room left with the sharp U last, at the moment, it's only an appearance issue, putting another insole may led to toe squeeze, but I will certainly try it :)

Something like this may help. I don't have any experience with this brand though. http://www.ebay.com/itm/TACCO-602-Fix-Shoe-Heel-Support-Cushions-Leather-Insoles-Inserts-TaccoFix-/290767783108

I believe EU38.5 equals UK 5.5, but some would say EU38.5 equals UK4.5, at present I am:

 

Measured as UK5.5D on a C&J measure board by shoe sales staff;

 

Wearing:

5.5 E in Edward Green 82 last (short boot, nice fit),

 

5 F IN Saint Crispin's classic last (oxford, snug fit) 

 

5.5 F in Loake capital last (double monk, generous fit with a thin layer of insoles, guess my best fit is size 5F)

 

38.5 in Vass U last (oxford, snug fit)

 

4.5/5F in Santoni (oxford fits good, heel slippery in loafer, plz note Santoni is Italian sizing)

 

5.5EE/EEE in Ferragamo tramezza (wholecut, snug fit, 6EEE in derbys are too big for me).

 

Tried:

Gaziano & Girling  MH71 last in size 6, heel slippery(monk shoe)

Carmina forest last size 5, heel slippery (but already squeezing my fore foot, guess forest last will not fit me, btw, it's still for grabs:))

 

It's about time I updated my fit summary, please be aware that my feet is quite unusual in sizing (small combined with skinny, I think, rather small heel and low insteps, I may never get a loafer that fits me, unless I go bespoke), so my fitting can hardly represent the majority.

 

For example: I know a guy with the same foot length yet had no problem with John Lobb size 6!:facepalm:

Totally high instep last of the U. Happened to an old pair. For that reason, I've been contemplating the S and/or SP. anyone have experience?
