Vass made Budapesters/Budapest last with shell? That's a miracle.
Dude if you think that's a miracle...check out these:
I'm not sure what the deal is but the black ones I posted here are shell.
These are Dinkelackers, not Vass!
Exemplary. Worth an un-spoiled quote.
I have shells on the Budapest and 3636 lasts. Love them.
I am totally leaning toward a shell Budapester for my first pair of Vass handmades. Something like one of these. tomcat said the Budapest last runs a bit snug in the toe box when compared to other Vass lasts. Maybe the 3636 will do because I like the classic Astro-Hungarian style, real old school.
The Budapest is a little narrow, at least compared to the P2. I wear 45F in P2 but need 45G in Budapest, which then fits very nicely. I have not tried the 3636 yet, but don't abandon the Budapest. It is so classic and distinctive with that high toe box.
Agreed. The Vass commando sole is fierce. Is Vass still having issues with their rubber soles partially coming off?
sorry another question about sizing. I did go through many pages but I could not get the answer.
I am good with EG 888 last. sized 6.5F. I believe I should go to EU 40 with the F last. but I am not sure if I need go to standard "F" width, or wider width "G".
I think F last with standard width should be very elegant, if the G width too wide? if the "G' width equals US "E" width or much like "EE" width?
If you take wide fit in EG 888, I'd say you definitely need to go with wide in F-last as well. And it won't look too wide, both U and F still look very sleek in wide G-fit IMO.
Thank you. then I think I will go to 40G.
Hi. Just FYI, I am 5.5 E or D on 888.
My F last is 38E. Length is ok but I still feel wide. Is your instep high? F last is very high around instep.
I think my instep is high. I have a C&J 3 eyes derby, 337 last 6.5E. it is too narrow for me, and its instep is also too low, actually it makes my instep feel painful, I even could not stand with it.
will F last 40F be wider than 337 last 6.5E?
Sorry I don't own 337 so cannot comment on that. I just thought 40 is too big for u.
