    The 2nd one on the U-last is oxblood.

    Personally, I take the same size for new peter and budapest last, and my feet are too narrow for the U.

    Does anyone here remember that post a while back from a member who bleached his shoes, then applied a red saphir dye to make a patina effect on them? Any idea where it is? I've tried searching for it, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Jet, outer sole measurements are a very poor measure for fit. As shoes are made on lasts, the finished shoe is placed on a sole. You definitely need inside measurements, taken on the insole.

    Thanks for that, yes I understand just wanted a crude idea of how long the outsole was on a 43 that's all. I wouldn't expect anyone to go to the trouble of providing an insole measurement also.

    My 42 was a hair under 12". 43 is probably 12.25.

    The HUF is nearly at its lowest point relative to the dollar in 5 years. Time for a group buy? If someone is in HU to provide cash, calf shoes can be had for $424 (excluding shipping)

    Is group order necessary? They'll do MTO at the same price one at a time if you need.
