I am a 44.5 in Vass U last and 44 in Vass F last and these are a good 1/2 size bigger. They're now located in New York and have never been worn. I'd like to get what I paid for them ($585) Here is a picture - hopefully fritzl and Sterling Gillette can post more pictures.

Fritzl, good job on the photography. You captured the well-shaped arch support much better than I did.

Is the John Wheeler you quote the Physicist, John Wheeler?
If so, his niece is an old family friend, who, incidentally, is married
to a world-class physicist, Jim Hartle.
