    I actually think the Alden Plaza boots are the winners in this trio - love the blind eyelets.

    How much wear can you get out a flush metal toe tap, and what do you visibly need to see as signs of wear that would require a replacement?

    I recently purchased my first pair of Vass, U Last I think. I've worn a few times and the shoes, particularly on the right foot, continue to pinch some across the vamp. I do like the shoes and am considering another purchase, this time on St. Peter Last, I believe. How does this last compare to U? Also, what are the chances that the shoes I own will loosen up? I wouldn't describe these as having soft, pliable leather.

    The U last is much narrower as opposed to the Peter last. Furthermore the Peter is round and not as pointy as the U-last. When I was in Budapest I tried on the U-Last and it was too tight for me so I went with the New Peter, which was a perfect fit.
