1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Remains to be seen, but I somehow doubt that this new last will work for those who find U too confining.

    Just attended the Super Trunk Show in Stockholm featuring Vass (apart from Meermin and Maftei). The S-last is definitely "wider at the toe" and quite square. The toe tip is thus a bit wider than the U. Understand? The last also seems to be a tiny bit more elongated than the U. I am 100% sure that my fellow countryman Jesper Ingevaldsson (of shoegazing.se) will give you all the details within 48 hours :)

    This. You'll have to wait for it in order to read a thorough review, clee1982. I didn't try the S-last as Vass didn't bring my size.

    Thanks j ingevaldsson for making this trunk show happen.

    Glad to hear you like them [​IMG]

    They are not far off 10UK - They are Euro Size 43.5 which I believe is somewhere between a 9.5 UK and 10 UK.

    Can you compare the sizing of the K last to lasts of other brands? I'm considering a 43 or a 43,5.
    I'm a 9,5 in Carmina Uetam and Simpson, a 9 in Carmina Forest and Rain, a 9,5 in Carmina Inca (though the shape is not ideal for my feet) and a 9 in Herring 619.

    Oh, that new leather lining colour of Vass's looks mighty sweet. Much better than the bland old one, far too light to pop.

    So is the new S closer in sizing to the F or U last?

    It was noisy during the trunk show, but from what I understood the main difference between U and S was the square toe and higher instep of the latter.

    I probably will before the year's end. Planning on having a pair in Bordeaux and another in Oxblood.

    so the instep of the S is higher? That's not good for me since I have a low instep. Thanks for the info!
