I received a Vass Budapest Derby in Cognac Scotch Grain today. Â Mssr Harris and Halmos were most helpful in getting these shoes to me. At first they appeared visually way too long. Â I wear a Edward Green 8(UK) F and Weston 8 E. Â The Vass are size 42, which is I size I wear from other makers. The Budapest fit just a 1/4" longer then my EGs and Westons giving me about 3/4" space from my big toe to the tip of the shoe. Â The width is alittle snug at the ball, but not tight. Â There is ample toe room. Â The heal fits nicely, with no slippage. Â For a new double sole shoe slippage is somewhat common. With my EGs and Westons I find a new shoe ought to fit just alittle snug, like a glove. Â For those of you who just received Vass shoes are your finding the shoe eases in the ball with breaking in?
