    I have a pair of Theresianer (size=6 in P2 last) and it fits fine. P2 with derby is OK with my size, but not in the case of oxfords which are too tight because of the close lacing. Do you know which kind of last for oxfords could fit as large as P2 for derby? Thank you!

    It is an instep issue.
    P2 is a relatively low instep last. I think almost all other Vass lasts have higher insteps. Try 3636, F.

    Yes, P2 has a low instep. So I was wandering whether F last would be fine. Are there any picture of Old English in F last in suede? Thanks.

    I think Swede66 has just that model, so he will probably be able to help you.

    Was in Budapest early this month. My visit to the shop was not quite pleasant. The sales lady was really rude. Therefore, walked out empty handed. Returned at night time for these pics.

    Sorry to hear about your bad experience! Very nice shoes! Not sure how rude the sale lady was, but I wouldn't have let a rude sales lady put me off buying nice shoes :D

    Very beautiful shoes? Are they in F last?
    Did you order them online or at the Vass store in Budapest? Do you have other pairs of Vass shoes?

    That Theresianer on the bottom right (right next to the Budapester on the frame edge): what last is that?
