    Some folks have said elsewhere in this thread that the U last is narrower because of the chisel toe. Is it also narrow at the heel and across the mid foot or only the ball of the foot to the toes?

    Hey guys, I'm new to Vass. What are the details on the K last?

    Narrower than what? My K, U and F last shoes all fit similarly through the heel, instep and forefoot. The noticeable difference is in the toe box, with the F being the most rounded and accommodating, followed by the chiseled U and then the extra-chiseled K.

    U last.

    Yup they are MTO. Had to go that route because of the design. And also because I wanted the welt wider, which I'm sure no one noticed consciously. [​IMG]

    Sorry. Meant to say narrower than F. Thanks for anticipating that and the info. I suspected the difference was mostly if not only in the toe box.

    Only the toebox, starting from the ball of the foot, I think. The straight lines on the U may annoy your pinky toe.

    And for the gent who asked, antique cognac on the left, 6125 to the right. (last pic) Ignore the brown polish on the toe of the 6125 F last, vamp colour is correct. Antique cognac has no red at all, but 6125 has an obvious reddish tint.
