    Thanks.

    Don't want to hijack the thread, but I am a little confused, when the RTW stuff ends and the custom pricing begins. So are there only the models on the website in exactly that constellation RTW or can I at least choose the color without paying the premium?


    best bet.

    go to budapest. the savings of paying cash and minus the shipping costs is covering the trip.

    True. But Innsbruck is not Vienna and Budapest is far...
    I will ask Eva for a first step. Better to try it in German or English?

    You would need 44.5 on F last and 45 on U last. Don't go lower, some will say that you will need 44F and 44.5U. Note that U last is narrow and if you have medium or wider feet, I'd recommend that you stay away from U last period. F last is classic and would be a safe bet anyways.

    ^ nice shoes! I think Vass does that style very well. They're on the potential wish list.
