    I need some Norweger in my life. Has anyone seen this make-up in one of their Italian lasts?

    Great shot! Seems like the Peter is a touch more bulbous around the toe - which I'm fine with and like. How is the fit on the two? One looser or tighter than the other?

    Peter is smaller than P2. I can actually get into the latter, although the shoes that I persuaded myself to buy turned out to be too long and were still pretty narrow about the instep.

    I think of the Peter as a very narrow 3636. Which could easily be wrong, as I couldn't even begin to get into it at the store. Someone who fits both might have a different verdict. But I can wear one if not the other, even though they look strikingly similar.

    Yes the peter is a bit smaller, feel more snug and look a little bit flatter around the toe. less curved and more symmetric.I could be wrong too, they are very similar but fit a little different. I only tried them at home, they are new and didn't wear them yet for the first time.

    Joonian...I do NOT see it as the U last.. maybe F or the New Peter last as it appears more rounded to me

    I would pay less than $450 for them

    New peter?

    And I have to agree with the poster above, considering you can buy a new pair straight from Vass for not much more.

    Those are F last and $450 is a great deal for them if they fit.

    Whoops, shell? :embar: I need to learn how to read.

    Someone obviously thought they were a good deal.

    BTW, not sure if people already do this, but here's an easy way to search through Vass's maze-like website for styles and colours with Google Images. This search for example shows images labeled Cognac.
