    Yep that's their standard configuration - unless you request something different. Obviously, the less speed hooks, the longer and more bothersome it is to put them on and take them off.

    Pretty simple. He buys the shell himself and supplies Vass for the specific shoes.

    New to this thread, have no Vass in my closet, and am interested in suggestions on Vass fit and last please.
    Shoes in the photos here are really something.
    They're in such great condition I wonder if the shoes are actually worn outside. :confused:

    Tombrone has posted some handsome Vass wholecuts at 43.5 on the New Peter last, with lasted trees.
    I normally take a US 10.5D and I'm curious to know if the size/last would fit. I assume the lasted trees matter.
    Could I get suggestions on Vass fit and last, please? ]]

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    --Chris

    10.5D US is 43.5 New Peter/F usually. It still all depend on the actual shape of your feet.

    Thanks. Would having high arches affect anything?
    Is these anything else I should know, please?
