    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hi Everyone, deciding between OEII F Last in Brown Boxcalf (65) or Oxblood (66), if it were you, which one would get get? Which is more versatile? I was really after a dark brown shoe in this design, so not sure which to go for.

    OEII F Last in Brown Boxcalf (65) vs Oxblood (66).

    65 - http://vass-cipo.hu/kepek/08_Olasz/065_Kicsi.jpg

    66 - http://vass-cipo.hu/kepek/08_Olasz/066_Kicsi.jpg

    Anyone know what this shoe is: http://www.zimmermannkim.com/blog/2...ii-oxford-in-oxblood-boxcalf/#jp-carousel-746.

    Also seen here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/307555/vass-f-last-oxblood-old-english-ii-45-5-12d

    Looks like 65, but in oxblood, or 66 without medallion. Couldn't find it in the catalogue, so would it be a special order?

    I think brown gets the edge for versatility but the oxblood actually goes with both navy and grey. I wear my oxblood more than my bordeaux coloured shoes. But not as frequently as mid to dark brown.

    100% Oxblood -

    Bordeaux has more shine and looks like fresh blood.

    My same thought? I don't understand.

    For all my Crocketts I am a 9.5E - so I go up half a size on my Vass to a Eu 44.

    I know some guys can stay on a Eu 43.5 - but my width & in-step slightly above
    average, so there real pain wearing a size 43.5.
    I have one pair in a Oxford close lace budapest in U last size EU 43.5 -
    I can do maximum 5 hours wear before the in-step gets sore and the ball
    gets red due to the friction.

    But I can't believe you or Vass went off by 4 full size....Did you tell them your Crockett
    or other Enlgish sizes to assist with measurements?

    If it was Vass at fault they should have offered an exchange
