    this is a great comparison, thanks for posting. Fritzl, would you say this is an accurate, albeit unperfect way to compare last shapes and sizes?

    Yes they do.
    I have a flatfoot, not too much, but still uncomfortable. That's why I asked Vass to add the arch support, they agreed and I should say result is great!

    Under the soft light they're looking close, but are quite different under flash

    Many thanks for sharing this (and all the pics). Can you say a bit more about the arch support; did you e.g. specify what type or thickness? I have no idea how these work but would be interested to learn more.

    Also, you may want to consider having Vass doing a flush metal tap for you instead of adding it on afterwards.

    Vass is reluctant to putting flushed metal toe taps on single leather soles, don't know exactly why, other makers do it.
