    I have an old pair of cheap herring suede shoes. No comparison with these. The herring brown is muddy and drab. The vass is very rich.

    It's really down to personal preference. I like a double sole for the firmer feeling underfoot and the extended wear before resoling. I also like the aesthetics of the double-to-single transition. Others will have different preferences.

    Can someone with experience with vass help me out. I'm interested in their antique cognac boots. What's the best way to order them from the US. Should I contact vass directly? Is notch still doing proxies?

    Thanks!

    was hoping someone could help opine on K-last sizing since I don't have the benefit of trying them on.

    If I am a uk8 G&G, and UK7.5 in virtually all C&J (348 being my favorite), would i fit into a 41 or opt for a 41.5?

    Thanks!

    I'm also UK8 in G&G and UK7,5 in C&J 348-last.

    I wear 41,5 in both U- & F-last and if I'm not wrong, I've never heard that anyone sizes down from U- to K-last. Therefor, size 41.5 should be a pretty safe bet.

    My first pair... Oxblood double monk x Epaulet. First went for an Alt Wein at No Man Walks Alone, but the P2 last way too narrow and long for me. Really uncomfortable. F last is slightly wider, really made much more sense for me. Maybe I'll get an Alt Wein in the 3636 when I go to Budapest in May.

    Those are some nice monks, I plan to make that my second pair. Once I lock down my sizing that is...

    Vass Oxblood is Sooooo dark! That looks black.
    I'm confused at the idea of P2 being narrower than F! I thought it was the opposite?
