    If I'm not mistaken they do. I saw one in the store. It looked something like Gdl's boot below

    I voted with my money for the oxbloof. Dark cognac is much lighter and reddish, but is also very good.
    As or the vibram sole - it looks rather casual and imo contrast with the DM style

    Nice DM..F last?

    Yes, I really like the oxblood, prefer over bordeaux.

    For my casual DM, I had a pair of Lobb William that had the commando sole and they looked great.

    Was thinking brown with commando on F last, which has a more rounded casual toe whilst not as bulky as the Peter.

    I dont want to risk it though in case it looks pants...I wish there was a Vass virtual mockup app :D

    Yes, F-last.
    BTW there are few Vass' DMs in both colors on ebay right now, just to compare the colors.

    Hi,
    I wear 8.5 UK in Carmina Robert last
    9/9.5 D in EG 82 Last
    8.5 in C&J 360 last
    9.5 US in Tramezza

    I have a narrow-medium foot.

    Would I wear a 43 in Vass U Last?

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    Brown's not as versatile IMO. Most versatile is Dark Cog, then Ox, then Brown

    Dark Cog is a deep dark red, a burgundy- goes with anything, including greys and navys, which brown doesn't always. Ox is a very dark purple, looks fantastic with greys and dark blues too.
