In my experience, sizing is extremely tricky with Vass. I have somewhat of a high instep and wear a 7 UK in every shoe brand that I wear including Carmina Rain. I first bought a 41 on the F and it was too big. The V was completely closed and the shoes gaped on the side.

I was then advised to try 40.5, they fit much better but still gape. The odd thing is I’ve tried a lot of different brands and never had that issue. I love Vass but maybe they’re just not a good match for my feet. I put all mines up for sale, sadly.

Oh .. that’s a bummer. I know how much u like Vass.

Your videos on the black cap toes was one of the reasons I want to buy the black Vass cap toe Oxford.

I am a UK 10 in trickers and Carmina’s Rain last. Do u think I can maybe go down half a size in their F last ? A 43.5 maybe ?

Actually, Vass F Last is true to size.... almost. I am UK 9.5 and on Vass F last 43.5 loafers, it is a very snug fit. Don't think you can size down.

I would be very surprised if you could.

It’s so hard to say, I would guess not. But it’s probably worth a try if you don’t mind going through the hassle of shipping them back if they don’t work out.

I did find when i walk there's a little bit of gaping at the sides. When i'm standing still it's fine. This happens more with the U last than F last. Personally i've found the F last to be the most comfortable for my feet but the U last to be the more visually appealing

It’s the opposite for me, mine is when I’m standing still. I really can’t stand that.

Not an expert, but i feel like the insole around the arch is too narrow for your foot

Not really sure what you mean by the insole. But one thing I know is the gaping usually happens when someone has flat feet and that’s not the case with me.
