    Tbh I would suggest just taking the plunge and see how it works out, I did and in the end they where half a size to big but since Vass exchanges them for you it isn't really a problem, besides the waiting.

    I don't intend to. What do you wear in classic lasts?

    Size up half for U last.

    Unless you have very narrow feet.

    10D = 43 F last.

    I meant I would not size up going from U to F as the fit is essentially the same in the heel, instep and forefoot. So if U fits you well in all those areas, so will F, but with more room in the toe box.

    I wear the same size 43 in U F and K lasts.

    I do not have narrow feet. They are slightly wide with a slightly higher instep.

    I say 42.5. 5-last is narrow in D width, and F is not a super-narrow last.

    Any of you gents know how the Vass last compare to Edward Green last's?

    I was looking at their boots the 88 with vibram sole but the lady said this is made on a wide last.

    I take a size 8 on the EG 64 last , would that be a 42 in Vass?

    She did also mention the New Peter last so it would be helpful to get a comparison on this also.

    Thank you

    Farhad - which Vass last? I wear a UK 9 in an E width on EG 888 and 82 lasts. I wear a 43 in Vass U, K and F lasts.

    Looking to join the VASS club. Aside from getting my wide fit MTO, does Vass lasts fit wider than GG lasts in general?

    ^^^ In general terms, I would say yes. G&G is one of the few manufactureres where I would have to go up to UK 9.5 in their standard width (or get a wide fitting on a UK9).

    The Vass last is 3636. , this is the one she said is quite a wide last.

    I think it will be ok for me in a size 8 (42) then as the EG 64 last is also quite generous.

    That's my understanding as well, and it certainly looks like a wide last from the photos I have seen. I have never tried one on, though.
