these look great
+1 such a pitty F last?
actually, i would like to know, where the problem lies. probably, they can be fitted.
yes, F of course!
Thanks guys! Think I will keep these for now and instead sell a pair of Paul Stuart dress boots that I just don't wear anymore and rarely ever did for that matter! Look forward to breaking these in this Fall!
I have somewhat "thin" feet with a low arch and can't get a secure lacing around my instep. Laced all the way closed, I can almost put my finger underneath the tongue. I could probably remedy it with a thick tongue pad, but I hate to do that if I can avoid it. Length and toe box are a great fit however. Good news is the P2 last seems to fit better over my instep.
imo, a low arch needs support. you can build it up from the bottom. it needs a good cobbler, though. i don't think a tongue pad could ever be a professional solution. good luck with your upcoming efforts.
why wait till fall hahaha
was hoping you'd post the close-up of the Vass cognac pebble. It's subtler than other pebble I've seen.
those boots'll age well
actually, that's the handmade factor. imo, you really could benefit from some basic knowledge of the shoemaking process...
Is that the 'Viennese charm' you're working again G ?
People's eyes start to glaze when i mention the word 'welt' or even 'schuhe' for that matter
but please explain - how they make the pebble at/for Vass
I'm interested in this as well. - Whose 'handmade factor' is it, the shoemaker's or the tannery's?
