    I hope you will all excuse a sizing question. I am looking at a pair of Vass on the P2 last. I wear 10.5E or 11D in Alden Barrie and UK 10.5 wide or UK 11 regular fitting in Carmina Forest last. What is the collective wisdom on P2 sizing? 44? 44.5?

    Hoping to order these shortly and will be happy to post photos upon arrival.

    My foot is about half a size smaller than yours and I found 44.5 too small at the toes with a straight tip on the F last. I'd go 45, but I'm not sure how much the P2 varies from the F. Sorry.

    Lovely boots-do they come with shoe trees?

    Yes, although they are the standard Vass hinged, lasted trees. I wanted the three piece trees but Mr. Berta, from whom Vass gets their trees, is having production issues.

    I've been pondering what a pair of balmorals from Vass would look. gsusu proves they handle this model very well.
