    There's a difference between MTO and MTM?

    The PII is wider - than the F last. I have tried both the P2, P3 and F last.

    The P last is Vass refined facelift to their traditional budapester last, without
    compromising on the width and comfortable fitting. Personally I find the P last
    more appealing than the hammer head Budapester Last.

    Yup, I'm unsure of the difference. Right now it just seems like a difference in the degree of customization.

    You're correct - with shoes there probably 3 types of orders: RTW; MTO and Bespoke...

    More recently you have Cleverleys coming out with Semi-bespoke. Gods know what that means.
    To me, if it's already made and comes in your size, then it's a RTW....everything else is PR spin to
    justify price hikes. .

    I have a couple pairs on the F. I also like the look of the P2 and the fact that it is a touch wider. What is the instep like on the P2? High?Low?

    Instep height is my primary concern for all lasts - if anyone knows enough to rank them comparatively from high to low, I'd be most grateful.

    F has a slightly higher instep than P2, don't have others.

    By the way - this is a comparison of U, F and P2 from the Shoegazing blog

    This MTO is still pretty low cost compared with other brands.

    They are quite different. U has a high instep, AE 5 has a low instep. U has very little toe room, AE 5 has plenty. AE 5 toe shape is more like F last, U last is square / chiseled.
