    Wait, you smell that?
    What size do you wear, and where do you live!? Just kidding.

    yes, I'd love to hear more about the shoes, their fit, the various RTW lasts they have and the process if you know about it.

    If those shoes cost €720 in Paris, think $1500 here @ NM. And I'm talking an easy $1500

    That's some hella antiquing on the brown pair; in fact, they look like a pair of Church's I tossed several years ago, that had come to look like that through years of abuse and overwear. How do they achieve that on new shoes?

    The 2 pairs Corthays are the best shoe porn seen in a while. I especially love the Bucy, I proclaim it as the shoe of the year. Are they Goodyear welted?

    The Corthays are utterly heavenly and sublime, excellent picks.

    Whoa - those are pretty cool. I usually don't like high laced boots but I'd make an exception for those. I really like that F last too - maybe more than the U.

    A comparison: U vs. F last

    Vass shoe trees are very true to the form, so the difference between to two lasts is more apparent judging from the trees. As you can see the F last is fuller, wider and more volumious than the U last even though it's one size smaller. Vass doesn't make trees in half sizes, only full sizes. So F last may be a better alternative for someone who has a fit issue with U last.

    Thanks for posting this. Very helpful.

    Do you have any experience with the C&J 337 last? I'm curious how this fits in comparison to the F and U last.


    Chris, I find C&J 337 fits quite close to the U last, closer than the F last. With F last I have to down size at least half a size from the U last. If 337 fits you pretty good and you're a big fan of U last, I think you're in luck. I know many people have fit issue width wise with U last.

    People generally refer to this style as a "side-gusset slip-on."
