    not sure who else gets G width, but I know j ingevaldsson gets G width in F last so hopefully he can chime in if he's around.

    As far as I know regular VASS width is F, so G is wide, H is their extra wide.
    In comparison to GG for instance and their regular width of E, wide is an F, and extra wide is G.

    I take G width in GG shoes, so I am taking an H width in VASS, as has been suggested.

    I use to do EEE in AE, but they never offered the EE. So to me, it was still a two width difference, at least in spirit :)

    same here on the EEE. I'm sure there could be some AE lasts where I could fit into a EE but I'd rather have a little wiggle room.

    Like Jubil I have G-width in Vass U and F, and F width in both G&G and EG. So one width size up in all for me, which would translate to two up for you.

    Unfortunately the translation tool didn't work for me yesterday. I use Chrome, could this be a problem? I'd love to read your Vass guide in English

    Hmm, should work. I use Chrome and works for me. But you could try the translation tool in the browser itself, should be the same result at least since it is Google Translate that the blog tool use.

    Read a couple of articles on Blue Loafer today, really nice, keep up the good work!
