For sure , you do not pay VAT. Final price is 312 Euros + 40 Shipping. I bought already two pairs from the store.
Wow I didn't expect the Vass charm to extend to their website pricing. You got an even crazier deal.

If that's the black Oxford that's half scotch grain, I bought the same one in 44.5. Price too good to pass up.

Fairly sure the 312 shell price was a mistake that has been corrected. I tried several times and always around 400. The other 50% off shoes are coming in correctly at 220.

Sorry to hear that. I guess I was lucky. Website behaves strange even to display the shoes.

Hi there cojld you please help me with lasts and sizing?
are the P or P2 elongated?
i like sharp lines, keeping that in mind, would be the U and F the best choices or are there other possibilities?
I don’t know if I have wide feet, but in some shoes I have problems with mi pinky toes rubbing at the side of the shoes, with that in mind I think that K last is not an option. Would I need to size up in the U or F lasts?
im típica it a 42 but don’t have many comparables. I’m a solid 42 in my cheap Florsheim, my 8UK capital Loakes hurt my feet (and the not all that soft leather doesn’t help). I also have a pair of Peal & Co boots which hurts my right pinky toe, but I don’t know which last it might be made on.
I hope the information given may be useful. Thx!

P and P2 are fairly classic round lasts. No issues with your toes rubbing.

F, U and K are more aggressive lasts, with the K likely being the most so. You will need to size up a little from P / P2, and if you have historic experience with toe rub I would go so far as to suggest U and K are not the right lasts for you.

In my case I had to go half a size up on P last comparing to F last. P last is quite short and even half a size bigger the shoes are borderline when it comes to the length. That's also the recommendation I got from Vass themselves and from Ascot shoes.

Thx. And what about F?

And did you get F in your topical size?

I admit I don't know what's considered elongated, but if it means what I think, then I would classify both P and P2 as half-elongated. P2 definitely, P at least subjectively, because I have to upsize (half-a-size) on it. It is almost a symmetrical last and if I went with my regular size (43.5), my big toes would get pushed inwards "too soon". The half size up still keeps the foot nicely in, so the shoe gives me plenty of room in front of the toes, and length. I am attaching a few pictures (including a pair of Loakes on the Capital, which you mention).

From top to bottom: 3636-44, P-44, P2-43.5, Loake Capital 9UK, P2-43.5.

Same order as above.

Closeup: 3636-44, P-44, P2-43.5

And finally, three P2s: Theresianer, London, Budapest, all in 43.5.
They are all slightly different (yes, shoes within a last differ): Budapest is tighter across the vamp, Theresianer the roomiest. London fits me the best as it has a tighter heel and wider but lower instep.

Hope it helps.
