Hello does Vass makes special shoe tree for your width? G equates wide width isn't it?
Yes, it is a wider shoe than standard. The tree fills the shoe very well, but we did not talk about the trees so I do not know if they are made different from standard
Cheers man. I will look into that. thanks
Swede - those U-last wholecuts are killer - congrats!
Awesome shoes swede.
May I ask what UK size you wear usually? Could I get measurements at the ball of the foot on the outsole for width?
I'm very close to biting the bullet and taking the plunge on Vass if I can get a good approximation since I have a wide foot and the U last is a narrower last.
Very well, this was the best indoor lighting I could manage today:
I am a "small" UK8, i.e. in some shoes i wear 7.5 (example AS 87 last) but most often UK8 (C&J 337, Carmina Rain, AS 109 and 99). I have fairly wide feet, lenght 262 mm, width 100 mm, and a high instep.
My F-lasted 41F is lengthwise fine, but on the tight side. The U-lasted in 41G seems to be perfect. Would consider to go for G-width also if I ordered a new F-lasted shoe. The U shoe has a bit lower toebox as well, but not problematic.
These are quite fantastic. Enjoy wearing them.
That's very helpful, I probably actually have wider feet than you do. I measure about 110mm across the ball and am a US 8E, UK 7 or 7.5. I'm okay with a Carmina Rain last size 7 or 7.5 UK. I think I've narrowed down my length to be 40.5, and would attempt a G width. Does Vass do anything wider than a G currently?
Thanks again for your impressions.
I must say, Vass sizing is quite interesting. I take a UK8.5 or a 9, and I ordered my boots in 42,5. When I first put them on without lacing them up, I immediately thought that they were too big. However, after lacing them up and walking about a bit on the carpet, I was happily surprised! While there was plenty of space for my toes, there was no heel slippage while taking normal strides. I think that I could probably pull of a 42 on the P2, but seeing as the 42,5 actually works just fine, it's actually freakishly comfortable thus far, I won't stress it, but if I were to order a shoe on the P2 then I would probably go for a 42.
Great looking boots.
Jakezero, man those are some really great looking boots. I love the color and the wingtip sans the perforations.
Thank you, thank you for posting. Sitting at my gate, bored, and this made my day
Jake, they are stunning - congratulations.
Are they bespoke or RTW?
