    Mbeebe; great shoes the natural sole looks way better than I thought it would and suits such a causal number greatly. Mind if I ask what width you ordered in the new Peter? Trying to figure out how much differ widths change the last shape.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Thanks everyone. TehBunny: For the sizing ordered the standard width which is what I generally take. These are size 42.5 and fit perfectly. I'd say these are roomy enough across the toes to be ideal for casual wear, yet not too roomy; they still have a nice refined-looking shape to them, narrower than, say, a D width in the Alden Barrie last, for example. I think the Vass 'F' last is even narrower than the P2, so I would probably go with that for a sleeker or more formal shoe.

    F is more narrow than P2, but not by much, and only near the toes where it tapers a bit. The F does have a higher instep/more room in that area, so keep that in mind.

    I have a P2 in 42.5 and F in 43 and I wouldn't change sizes for either one.

    This is perhaps a random question, but how heavy would you describe vass shoes as being? particularly the shell cordovan. For example, my allen edmonds cordovan shoes seem significantly lighter than my aldens. Any comparisons with vass would be appreciated.
