Hey I am 9.5D AE park avenue & take 42.5 for F, K & U last. For what it's worth.Hate to interrupt the current conversation with yet another appeal for sizing advice, but I'm lost when it comes to Vass, and there are pairs I'm looking at on a variety of lasts (P2, Budapest, New Peter, F, and U). I've looked around and it's been hard to come to any conclusions; sizing has been further complicated since it seems Vass shoes are rather variable regardless of listed size.
For reference: I'm a 10US on a brannock, and I feel I have a lowish volume foot, though I wear a medium width. I do not have a high instep, which makes me nervous about some of the Vass lasts.
Meermin, 9UK (perhaps a bit small, but not uncomfortable)
Herring Knightsbridge, 9UK (fits well)
Allen Edmonds 65 last, 9.5 (I've never actually tried a 10 in these, so I don't have a point of reference)
Alden for Brooks Brothers, 9.5 (fits well in the toe box, but there's some heel slippage. I've also found conflicting information regarding the sizing of the last: some say it's the Barrie last, others say it's a different last that fits identically to the Barrie last, etc)
Also, if I have to choose, I'd rather my shoes be a bit large than a bit small.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
