interesting. 3636 is Vass' version of the traditional "Wiener Leisten" - "Viennese last", which is almond shaped. every maker/workshop has his specifications. if you want, you can compare it to cooking. a dish has a basic recipe - this is the point of departure.

this are some examples of Mr. Kiss' interpretation of this last. excuse the quality of the pictures, as they only have snapshot quality.

here is one of mine - far left, actually all are my mine:

for a better understanding. i'm a measured EU 43/43.5. these are more 44./45 to compensate the width of my forefoot.

you might ask: why can this be done. rule of thumb the fit happens in the heel and in the middle part with a good arch support.

imo, the "Wiener Leisten" is definitely a blessing for people like me and my foot shape.

That's pretty much why Vass fits me so well.

this is a bespoke number from workshop Maftei/Vienna for a bloke in belgium, who's been inspired to try them after reading on sf about them.

Fun stuff! I personally like the original better, but i'm guessing you had several things in that color already. Diversity can never hurt. You did that yourself I take it? Did you strip it and then add black, burgundy and dark brown layers of cream and polish?

oops, this is "the" original colour. neither I nor anyone else did anything to them. not sure what you mean? just different light conditions.

Wow. They look very different in that case. The first photo seems like a dark cognac and the second a dark oxblood.

So what do you mean by before and after in the photos? Just showing the different lighting effects?
