Not strange at all, you may have a low instep. I never see gaps on shoes.. literally NEVER.

How's the length, would your feet move around in the shoes?
Length is close to perfect. No sliding around. I fear that a 45.5 might leave heel room, like you mentioned.

Agree with someone about the inconsistency in sizing (kind of). The toe box of my right K last cap toe is a bit higher than the left. Still keep this pair because of the good sale price.

Had my first pair of Vass boots (Austerity Brogue Oxfords in Brown Cordovan on F Last) delivered today. I am disappointed with the sloppy packaging and delivery of the boots. Each boot arrived in a separate shoe box with lasted shoe trees. But they didn't put any filler material in the boot shafts. Boots seemed to have moved around the shoe boxes during the shipping and there was extreme amount of folding on the shafts for both boots!

I am attaching pictures of the boots right after unboxing. The vamp and base of the boots that had shoe trees to support came out fine (Top view picture below). This makes me realize the quality of workmanship in these boots; unfortunately messed up by sloppy packaging during delivery. Please see the stunning stock image from Vass Online store at the end for comparison!

Can I get rid of or reduce these folds working on them with Deer Bone or Spoon? I have pairs of boots that had 10 yeas of usage that haven't crumpled so badly! Appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

You should definitely buy them 🙄😂

On a serious note, has anyone seen or have shoes in the grey museum calf? I'm seriously considering a pair.
I have been looking too as they have my size (44). Just not sure about grey as a shoe colour. I'm not sure where one would wear them. I guess they could easily be darkened with a little cream if one wanted more subtle. The pictures look to have brown notes but probably just lighting?

I'm seeing brown notes as well. If they're dark and have brown notes, I think they'll be quite versatile. They'll probably go well with light and medium grey trousers. Navy should work as well as long as the shoes are dark enough.

Since it's on the shaft, I think it'll be difficult to get rid of them, imo. On another note, I didn't think Vass was making Cordovan boots any more...

Just got my U-lasted Oxfords in the mail today, and IMO they are the sleekest, most elegant Vass l

I've noticed the museum color is the background color. So in the case of gray museum, seems to be charcoal/black with gray background. That should work with most outfits except khaki/browns.

Hello precious.
Alt English (semi brogue) in gold museum calf on the U-last.

Beautiful. How does the U fit compare to your F fits?
I size down 1/2 for the F-last. For me, they're both great fits. I have a high instep and low volume foot which is a perfect match for the U and F-lasts. The U-last is narrower around the toes, but nothing uncomfortable whatsoever. Both lasts hug the heal comfortably. Although sizing up/down between the lasts, I don't experience any noticable difference in length. I don't feel like my feet have excess room in U compared to F eventhough taking 1/2 size larger.

To conclude: U is narrower around the toe area and lower (less volume) compared to F.

Very nice!
I ordered the same pair in dark brown museum on June 18, and I am still waiting... Got an update on July 10(!) that my size was OOS and was offered the option of making a new pair with a lead time of 5-6 weeks, or a refund, or picking a different RTW model. So I replied back accepting the first option since I didn't mind the wait. Since then, total silence. Followed up on September 30, October 14 and 20, just asking for an update -no replies.
Granted we're going through exceptional times, but this is very unprofessional! I did business with them twice last year, and the online service/communication was very smooth and timely.
