    My pair were short wings but I otherwise agree. Love those shoes.

    If only Vass could replicate the split toe stitching on the Dover/Nevis and Thorpe/Hove.

    By the way it's killing me to see all these awesome shell boots and shoe while knowing that they will no longer accept orders for shell footwear.

    It was maybe two weeks ago that Kuti told me no more shell MTOs for a while.

    When you order directly from Vass how does payment work? Full amount up front, half up front and the other half on delivery or full amount after the shoes have been completed?

    I paid in full after the shoes were finished, right before shipping

    No not at all too blobby and the comparison with the longer narrower lower slung F last is even a fairly stark one I think.




    Alt Wien is antique cognac shell and the u-cap is brown museum calf.




    Thanks fellas.

    Anyone have pics of norwegier on different lasts?

    Looking for winter boots and here's what Im thinking:
    -Norwegier boot
    -Goyser (80%... not sure)
    -Scotch grain (dark brown or cognac???)
    -Obv vibram soles
    -Last ....... no idea
    -Lining (???)

    the idea is like these Paraboot Serignan but i dont want to go back to france to get em

    wow. thats pretty much spot on with what i want but w/ textured upper. is that goyser welting for the boot? certainly not as subtle or flush as the 'standard' style on my vass oxfords.

    ^ do you recall the days when P2 was considering a clunky last? i think for the first 2 years i was on SF, until 2012 i was under the impression that P2 was a chunky, ill-proportioned last. and then when i saw it in person i had trouble differentiated it from the F. even now its hard to tell from some pics. i think welt and outsole add more bulk than last itself

    @NAMOR I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble telling the difference. The difference in fit is obvious but in looks not so much. Just a slightly pointier toe.

    How is the fit of F-last for you compared to the other lasts?

    f last fits great, just not a fan of the creasing. space across the vamp is perfect but the toe is a little roomier than i would like

    f 45
    p2 45
    u 45.5
    r 44.5

    Not mine.I really like them. F last. 360 goyser in natural colour.

    I have in production the same boot, Osloer in Oiled Green Calf, P2 last, 360 goyser in natural colour and double leather sole. An experiment, lol!!

    too much contrast for me. i think double leather will look better. good call, please post when the boot arrives. oiled green calf is a little lighter than green museum?

    I will post it Namor (my first 4 Vass pairs all in production, 3636, F and P2 lasts, lol). No idea about Green Museum, but mines are like dark olive green (called by Vass Oiled Green Calf). It is just for funky time.

    Hi, does anyone own a pair of shoes or boots on the F last in a UK 8 (42) - I would be interested in knowing the internal length of the shoe.

    Thanks.
