Me expect nice present soon.
Me very very excited.
gotta agree and it's the one gripe i have with my pair. I won't be ordering a HAF sole again through Vass.
I suppose I will just bite the bullet and buy a size 43. If it doesn't work out, look for it in sales.
cheers- re: heel shapes ... the pointy toe takes a tapering-to-ground trapezoid - like a cowboy boot, or women's heels - for balance and even distribution of weight.
A broad rounded-toe takes a broad heel tapering-to-top trapezoid for the same reasons.Acc to Vass a slight asymmetry in the heel is most comfortable for shoes in between.
l to r: F dble; P2 pebble; F single in antic cognac, but IMO it's a very dark one.
so many shoes, so little time
my bad- didn't know u felt this way.
Clearly the Dover is inferior in construction, but still like the look tho, and the willow calf is rare now.
+ 1... and as Slewfoot says a 'Weymouth' in Edward Green terminology, mebe Burgundy? ... but to Vass u might be better saying a U cap Adelaide, or possibly an Italian-Oxford with a U-cap- or better still provide a pic.
try faxing if email doesn't work
same in U last, red cog
and the Blucher version
yes, the dble sole stack is higher
Thanks for your answers guys! I contacted kolecho who was very helpful. Although, I do have a problem cause I don't know my actual size on Vass-shoes (UK7,5E on C&J, last 348 & UK8E on G&G). I think I'm going to order a pair of Vass through ascot_shoes at ebay at first and try the size out because the seller do offer refund if the buyer is not happy. After that, I will go bananas on Vass by kolecho!
EDIT: I can't stop looking at the shoes. Stunning!
I find the C&J lasts to be enormous- and the 348 most ginormous of all.
I take UK 8.5 in 348 and UK 9 in the 341 and 337.
UK9 in Vass F, UK 9.5 in P2 and U.
You may be UK8 in Vass F, and maybe UK 8-8.5 in U.
That's what I also thought. I've ordered a UK8 in U-last. Hope it fits so that I can move on with my other orders. Thank you for you input!
cheers awesome.. looks like you are a derby guy The one above isn't this in the R last? Doesn't look F to me...but very nice though.
I wish I too can get a present...but it will not happen lol
good luck. imo, the u-last might be a bit complexe for a start into this venture. well, you have to start somewhere, anyway.
Much appreciated. Now, can we have the shell colour chart please?
Thank you for your concern. I just love the italian touch of the U-last. If the shoe doesn't fit I'll send it back since the seller offers full refund if not satisfied.
If one wishes, does Vass trim down the welt when ordering?
Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. It's hit and miss.
If they don't, just get your local cobbler to do it. Mine does a fantastic job.
