    As soon as I get home, I'll post one shot of my Antique Cognac, F Last, Old English II (Italian polish). I don't know why I once imagined Vass shoes to be heavy: this babies are feathers at my feet. :slayer:

    Any idea which last these are on? The photo angle is a little distorted but normally I can tell Vass lasts from photos. They look a little broad to be F Last but they look more shapely than some of the other 3636 photos I've seen. Somehow doesn't look like P2 either. I came across these on google images and there wasn't any info that came along with the pic.

    My first pair of Vass arrived today.

    The specifications:
    * U-last, size 44,5
    * Antique cognac
    * Brass buckles
    * Shorter rounded straps, buckles attached directly to shoe
    * Single sole

    Ordered directly from Vass, got wonderful service and prompt e-mail answers from Reszo Kuti. And for us europeans who don't have to fight extra FedEx-costs they came out pretty cheap (470 euros including trees and shipping). Very happy with them, truly great shoes and they fit well (I'm normally a size 10UK/44EU, so did the right choice to size up to 44,5).

    And of course, a bunch of photos:

    Perhaps a P2 in cordovan or some other stout stuff. Or a small 3636?

    Sooooo consensus is that I would the same size on the 3636 last as the Budapest last, correct?

    I am the same size on the P2 and F and on the U a half size up from those two.

    They look like saddle shell and cigar shell. Awesome stuff.
