    Thank you, this is very helpful. To me, the 109 last looks more like the shape of a banana, whilst the F last is more symmetric. By looking at pictures I get a feeling that the cap toe area is smaller on the 109 last compared to the F last. Reminds me of the cap toe of AE's Park Ave, which I don't like as it's to small. These two things makes me hesitating

    As far as sizing goes, would you say that one should generally size up 1/2 from F to 109? I'm a size EU41 on the F last and EU41,5 on the U last.

    Incoming No.8 wholecuts on U last. Appreciate not everyone loves a wholecut, but looks nice to me and wanted to add a burgundy-ish one to my collection.

    Absolutely, they will arrive on Monday!

    I got very unlucky with my pair before this (need a remake due to bad spot), but these look fab! In all fairness to Vass, when something is wrong they rectify it so quickly and Rezso is fantastic.

    Congrats bro, those are bad as can! Wholecuts are killing it too. Lots of great makeups dropping today, this has become a really fun thread to watch.

    i'm not a huge fan of shell but i love the whole cut on the U last. I am considering something like this but with a calf or grain leather. Of course, gator would look great too!!!

    I love these boots!!!! I just can't decide if I want to go U last or stick with K.

    I'm definitely going to get a plum museum with burgundy suede so i don't copy right off of you!!! Plus i have quite a few blue shoes (Blue calf plain toe, blue suede wingtip, blue calf / denim spectator, blue suede / blue calf spectator double monk), so I think the burgundy / plum shades will be a better choice! lol
