    ^^^ Nice. Most shoes in that configuration I have seen (including mine) have been on the F last, so I am looking forward to your U-rendition.

    Budapesters in the Autro Hungarian tradition and region is a very specific reference to the style and last. Yes they can be made on any last but I'd not call them Budapester's

    Yes they can be made in any last as you ask, but they will not be referred to as Budapester.

    Many thanks, gents. I forgot to add that these Bordeaux kicks are on the F-last.

    I've said this before and here's once more: Vass offers the best shoe deal on the planet. Lasts shaped by Ugolini and thicker soles from Rendenbach seal the deal.

    Would you say bordeaux is just as dark as the oxblood only with a red base as opposed to purple in the oxblood
