Night time photo...was not sure what to expect after a few email exchanges back and forth. These finally arrived. I asked for medium brown suede but these look like brown or dark brown instead. F last fits well still, a little gaping around the inner quarters but nothing that I would ever worry about. Almond toe shape in my eyes is ideal, it is not too pointed at all. My first MTO directly, will definitely know what to ask for next time. The brown suede instead may actually be a 'win' since it is different than what I already have in rotation. I believe this brown color is slightly more versatile. (If I could change one thing in hindsight is have gone with plain calf leather.) My goal with this MTO was to keep the vamp and toe simple like you'd see with slippers from B&L but with a thicker sole so it is not too dainty. Double sole was just something I was introduced to with my first pair of Vass purchase a few years ago and I like it.

These were the specs I asked for FWIW:
  • model: Slipper – no strings, no tassel – as on the photo
  • size: 40.5
  • last: F
  • color&leather: Medium brown suede
  • sole: Double tapering to single (bevelled waist)

Their photos for comparison:

I have one more pair of shoes in mind to replace a pair of old brown cap-toe oxfords but will revisit that maybe next year.

Can someone help me with sizing of Vass.

I am UK 10 in Carmina's Rain last and Trickers 4497s last.

What size should i go for in Vass F last ? 44 or 44.5 ??
I love Vass. They are for me the best price/value/style handmade shoe by a country mile, however sizing is tricky. I would say 44 but I would also say if there was any possible way to try then do so. Get your sizing right and Vass are just sublime.

I am interested in buying the Black Cap-toe Oxford on the F last. Actually i am in the market for a cap-toe oxford in any last.

But 44 is not available. 43.5 and 44.5 is available.

Going by the conversation above. 44 seems to be the correct size.. Well, i guess its just my bad luck.

Pretty incredible pricing for non-eu buyers. Sub $400 after shipping. If these come with trees, it's a stellar deal. Without trees it's still a good deal.
