I don't agree with U or K last being traditional.
It's fun to imagine how the polish would crack across the vamp...
Looks like a Septieme Largeur-style "patina" using dye painted directly onto the stripped down shoe. I like the colour, and the polish job is impressive, but I can't say I love the streaks in the dye this method makes. I suppose it's quirky and interesting, and some of these patina artists do some really fun stuff. But on a shoe this traditional, and in this colour, I can't help but think that a more traditional burnish with polish would have suited better.
Still, they're not my shoes so who cares what I think?
Yes, I agree. Beautiful colour, but looking more closely the side panel streaks in the dye are not good. I think something more subtle on such a fine pair of shoes would have been more suitable.
Anyone has experience with the R last? Would be good to know how the fit is compared to F last in Oxford.
They are gold museum calf, my favourite, got a pair on the way!
Those are gorgeous aren't they
FFS! More on the list, less in the bank. Thanks RogP
You're gonna love 'em!
Thank you kindly.
I feel your pain. The forum is a dangerous place.
oh very nice
R last is quite a bit roomier than F. Wider forefoot and heel and, I think, higher instep. In the same size R and F, the F is a snug it and the lacing closes to a V. For the R, there's more room all around and the lacing closes pretty much all the way unless I have on thicker socks. Jury's still out on whether one is ultimately more comfortable than the other. Both seem nicely wearable at the moment.
There's an R last? I guess I need to pick one up so I can have the F-U-K-R Vass last quartet
