I like the way you think , I don't have photos yet but something like this japanesse
with perforations like this wings
or perforations caps like antonio's
Which Vass last do you think most closely approximates the shape of this shoe above?
Also, photo of the new slippers in action.
I feel as if they may be a little snug in the ball of the foot. It feels as if my feet want to be a fraction further forward in the shoes. I think it may be a function of my heel to ball size versus my heel to toe size.
Any thoughts from the gentlemen here on how to account for this for a future Budapest last order? Should I try going up .5 in size (to 45.5) or go out a width to 45 G?
I think the snug fit should work for a slipper, which would be nice as I really like the style. But I'm certain this fit would not suit a laced shoe.
I just received a pair of my vass shoes today and I love them, just that they're a tad too loose and the leathers are touching when I tie the shoe laces. Anyone have any idea how I can check the size on my vass? Just seems like a bunch of random numbers to me. I have no idea how to post a picture so I quote what I see on the inside of the shoe "0013042- '9 or g' " and below it 'A1B1' thanks for any help!
The wing perforation was really nice rikod.
Decision taken, order placed with Rezsö yesterday evening. U-last wholecut w floating medallion, oxblood, single leather sole w sunken rubber toe taps.
Recommended by Mr V himself to try the same size and width as with my F-lasted shoes and return for exchange shouldn't they fit, despite Rezsö first recommending same size but G-width.
And as Rezsö said; who are we to question Mr V ?
Four weeks production time promised. Can't wait...
Think the same size will be perfect for you! I sized up 0.5 for the U last and ended up returning it for my normal size. Sounds like it's going to be a great looking shoe! Please post pictures when they arrive!
FrankCowperwood your slippers look sooooo smart, i'm amazed !
I definitely need such a pair...
I'm just a little afraid of sizing, maybe getting measured at Budapest is the wisest idea...
Slippers' fitting is so painful to choose...
Wear in good health Flick.... do you know how to upload photos onto Flickr ?
I was told the numbers here represent the date of manufacturer: "0013042"
0013 means 2013
04 means April
2 means 2nd April...
I don't know what the rest means...
Make sense as you received your shoes sometime in May.
I think the other has something to do with who in the factory made them, kind of like a painters signature.
Sorry bbdc/Swede - I was only joking about the C last...
If Vass was ever to make a new last - I'm in favour of calling it the C last - in honour of Chogall.
F would be the closest I think. Nice slippers, congrats.
Excellent!, looking forward to the pictures
Me too, if Vass were to make a new last and called it "C" last, that would be epic, the boldest move in history
The tactical solution is to ask Mr Vass for the F/U/K last in a slim C width.
The list of lasts would like like an advertisement for two rent boys: "FUCK Peter, New Peter, Budapest 3636"
This is a ridiculous discussion!
