    imo, extra cost is not the correct term. they are more expensive than the spring-loaded hence a higher prize for the whole package.

    But which one you want, the 3636 or the P2?, you already have shoes in both lasts I think right?

    ^ oh I see, They fit well?, a ptb in the P2 looks pretty and I understand the fit is similar but both would look great. decisions, decisions :D

    rik, the point i'm making here.

    there are different factors, which lead to the decision for our shoe trees: cost, material, comfort, weight, prize and availability.

    these trees are exclusive to VASS for the moment and they are lighter than the spring loaded. something to consider for travelling, imo.

    You forgot an important factor: the awesomeness, they look great, I want them to look at them too, to be honest.

    P2 is similar in fit to 3636? After following the Vass thread for a while, I've was under the assumption that the P2 is elongated, medium width with a low instep and the 3636 is a shorter, wider last with a high instep. Maybe I'm mistaken? I'm always on the fence about the 3636 last because I'm afraid it would be too short/wide looking to wear with suits.

    While browsing around Kinokuniya (japanese book store in midtown) yesterday, I came across several copies of the Handmade Shoes For Men book by Lazlo Vass and Magda Molnar. I've always known this book existed but I've never come across it in person. It's really an impressive book.

    If you are into shoes it's worth owning in my opinion. So much good information.
