    On the positive side, this probably means more business for Nick at BE. He, like Skoak, is a great merchant. So it sounds like a "win-win," as we say in the States.

    I don't know if you know this, but i have a couple of shoes from the shoemaker vass with the F last. Its a little bit to low in the instep for me, but its still quite high they say in their catalogue. What would you recommend if i want to go for something like the vass f last but from lets say enzo bonafe with a sligtly higher instep?

    probably a long shot but u need to try :)

    The 363MOD would probably be your best shot.

    Looking forward to the flood of CS field boot pics when those arrive. I have a feeling those two models will turn out amazingly.

    Long time reader of styleforum but new as a member. I was lucky to be in the first run of the Carlos Santos Field Boot in brown grain. I thought i'd upload some pictures.

    Could you describe the fit of the 316 last, and if possible, compare it to any lasts of other manufacturers that you've tried?

    I wouldn't describe the 316 last as wide fitting, to me it fits between Carmina Forest and Rain last. The grain leather is surprisingly soft and supple though. This leads to some creasing (in fact it is more like 'rolling') but since this is a boot i don't mind at all. I have a high instep and the last is quite accomodating but of course this is an open lacing boot. Not sure it would work for an oxford in my case.

    How does the heel seem? On par with Carmina or roomier? Other CS lasts have some pretty roomy heel reports.

    I don't experience any heel slip, but tbh that's something I never experience in a high lace boot. So for this type of shoe i'd say the heel fits pretty good.
