    To give more insight on the F last I would say the instep is higher compared to rain. The laces are tied closed whereas the rain (granted it is 0.5UK smaller) there is a small V. In terms of the heel, the F last seems narrower, i do get some heel slip with the rain last. In terms of the ball of the foot to the toes, i find the F last a bit roomier to the rain. Hope that gives you an idea.

    Can anyone compare Vass F/U last to Allen Edmond's lasts? I'm a 9.5 E (sometimes D) and fit into this size pretty well - but with a big purchase like Vass, I want to be dead sure...

    I am 100% sure, just used eBay search function. Oxford styles sold around 350 USD plus shipping, derbies were lower than 300 USD.
    And $350 USD plus shipping for Vass is not that rare of a deal. Right now there is a guy on BS selling 350 includes worldwide shipping

    That’s sounds perfect. I need a narrower heel and bigger ball than Rain. So you took half size smaller? Or equivalent?
    Revised: Did not see you previous post, so you actually sized up on F? That's very confusing, I thought F is roomier than Rain in term of width

    Fortunately, they didn't have the jodhpurs in my size or I would have had to explain another shoe purchase to my wife.

    Wow, this group considers AE as "quality beaters"? Yikes.

    For below $300 stacked with corp discount and partial rubber sole, I'd consider them quality beaters.

    Do you think they're good or bad?

    I think AE is a well made shoe. I wouldn't consider them beaters. But that's just me. My beaters are a pair of Ecco.

    Plus I take care of all my footwear, and don't truly consider any pair to be beaters... I digress.

    Which corporate discount are you referring to (the credit card)? My normal corp discount card has never snagged me an additional discount on sale items in the 4 years I've had it.
