    I didn't work with Vass directly. I went through SF member Arahat, who proxied and handled all communications.

    From what I've gathered around the forum, it doesn't sound like they are taking shell orders. And if you're in the US, they're not taking new customers period. Others might have better info, though.

    Thinking about a Viberg style work boot in 3636 last, is it same size as F/U last or size down? Thanks!

    I am a 43F/42.5G in F last

    Go with your F last size. If you're sizing up for width, I'd go 42.5f

    I find F and 3636 to be comparable in length-- i.e., from heel to ball of foot. (The 3636 is a shorter shoe overall b/c of the look of the toe.) The big difference will be width, as 3636 is voluminous by comparison. 45 F in G width is just wide enough for me in shell, while regular 3636 works best for me with heavy socks.

    Would like some opinions on this. Only the second wear for these, but I'm about to make another F last purchase. I know some are extremely picky about the throat being entirely closed....so should I size up a half size? I'm thinking no because they aren't completely broken in yet and they feel good. Just curious what others would do.

    In fact, either it is 0.5 too large or the instep is too high for you.

    Hardcore SFers state that before entire break in, a V gap should be there.

    That V is fine - especially if that's a morning picture

    Just a novice question: what V are you guys talking about and where can I get "V for dummies" beginners course?

    They beautiful! I can see a fellow Nordic man opting for the Dainite sole for our lovely slushy and snowvy streets filled with ice and that killer sand treatment :)

    Did you go get them from the shop in Budapest or ordered some other way?

    Ordered via e-mail through Mr Kuti. He really is a pleasure to deal with.
