    Budapester style in the F last with a combination of dark brown calf (main part of shoe) and dark brown scotchgrain (tongue/throat only). Double sole with 270 degree goyser welt and metal toe tip.

    Anyone with experience with the New Peter (P2) last? I'm thinking of ordering a pair of boot soon, but still unsure about sizing. If I'm a true 10US, what size do I go for?

    My only Vass pair. These are MTO, F-last double monks in Oxblood with arch support, cost me 400 euros directly from Vass-cipo. They made it in 1 month and even reduced the price in the invoice so that I had not to pay customs (although I didn't ask for it).
    Very nice soft leather, few nice details.
    It fits extremely comfortable from the beginning and I'm worrying wouldn't they become too bbig when I break-in?
    Two sad moments:
    The strips are sewed, not connected by strings like on my Bontoni or on the JL William. This means I need to open at least upper strips to take them off!
    Also I expected the two-color sole, I didn't order it but thought it goes two-tone by default.
