After 3 painful months of waiting, these babies just landed!
Dark brown Chromexcel chukka on F-last. Really liking the Chromexcel stuff - looks a bit more rugged than the usual calf and looks like it will age very nicely.
Special thanks to kolecho for the super service and great advice on fit
Beauties, they will age nicely for sure. Congratulations
so vass is doing only calf in chromexcel?
I think these were a one off special through Kolecho only!
the handmacher are doing well?
Yeah, they are breaking in so very nicely... amongst my most comfy shoes for sure.
I'm sure this has been covered elsewhere, but has anyone here done a bespoke order-- i.e., with a non-standard last (or an attractive last made to fit an unwilling foot)? If so, how has that gone?
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
sure looks nice...hows the fit?
They fit well, same size as my F and P2, a little more snug in the ball area of the foot but no problem there. I can see how the U is difficult, if my foot was a bit wider and my instep higher I would take 1/2 size up if that makes sense. In short, for me, the size was a success, I can understand how others would need to size up, with the right instep, kind of tricky. Wide feet and low instep need not apply.
I like the shoe, super nice leather and well made as always, U last seem kind of "thin" or unsubstantial compared to other Vass lasts, kind of pretty, cute, delicate (girlish?) ala G&G, pretty nice for a wholecut imo. I will keep them, but it will be my first and last U.
rikod, those are lovely. Enjoy!
+1. Which last is that on?
Thank you!, it's the U last.
