    That is a good price for a shell shoe. Listing is a little wonky though. They aren't Alt Wiens and I'd be very surprised if they are P2 considering the shape of that toe box. Look like Budapest last to me. Nice shoes one way or another. I'm interested in seeing Oxblood shell someday. Wonder what the difference is compared to burgundy.

    Maybe P3? Looks a little long in the toe to be Budapest.

    They are on Budapest last for sure. Posting is off with one showing with topy and the other without. This looks like calf in oxblood to me as they do not have anything in shell in oxblood.

    Yay this pair fits much better than u cap (see rolls)

    Pleasantly surprised since the uppers are made from a single piece of leather

    F last! Fit is 5x better than the ucaps. I'm wearing both pairs with a thin vass insole. Im usually opposed to insoles but the double leather outsole plus extra insole has me hovering above the 6'3" mark

    received a question about f last fit (sizing question) so ill just put this here for reference

    Its a crap shoot for me to be honest. Right now im wearing a pair of f last shell ucap boots that fit 1/2 sizes big. Earlier in the week i wore a pair of f last norweger shoes in same size and they fit perfectly. Yesterday i wore a pair f last shell captoe boots and they only fit slightly bigger. All 3 pairs are flat welt, double leather sole and the outsole measures the same length and width.

    A lot of variability when it comes to vass shell and also boots. norvegese stitch adds another element of variability

    Calf shoes however are pretty consistent in sizing, ime

    For reference:

    f last 45 (norweger)
    u last 45.5
    r last 44.5
    p2 last 45

    uk11.5e in the EG 888, 82, and G&G mh71 and tg73. alden barrie 11.5C

    In the end of October 2014, i was in Budapest for business so i've tried all the Vass last.
    This U Last is amazing, my feet are fine and the shoes are just like i expected.
    The Goyser are great even if with U Last, this not a traditional mix.
