    Does anybody know if the F and U last share the same outsole dimensions in the same size?

    Haven't owned a pair of U last for a while (never fit right), but seem to recall U being slightly longer than F.

    Some enlightening and disappointing news.

    Price increase to come in the coming days and they won't make high boots from shell anymore, only ankle boots.

    I am clarifying with them whether they can still make my balmoral boots considering I would only like the bottom of the boots made from shell. Oh and they're possibly out of shell for now.

    I should have a couple of stock shoes in the same size, I'll check and let you know. I'm pretty sure the measurements will be different though.

    Ah OK. Did not know that as I'm just learning more about the brand now.

    Bummer I may have to re-think the shell decision as it's a bit too pricey for me right now.

    What were the new prices? I remember the previous price point for mto shell shoes was reasonable relative to other brands (around 600 euros)

    They haven't provided me with the new standard prices, but for my requested makeup (balmoral boot with shell upper and red brown suede shaft). They quoted me EUR 890 + EUR 40 for shipping. I know it's handwelted and fully customizable, but too high for me given what I want and it not even being a full shell boot. It's not clear to me if that is with or without VAT.
