    Didn't order one as I have a racing green belt from Equus and black would work fine with this pair as well

    Hello My Gents! I am new here and need some ideas about sizing of Vass.

    I wear Alden Barrie 8.5 D, Hampton 9D

    What size of Vass F last should I buy?

    Thank you

    If your instep isn't too high, then I'd say 41.5. Your stated sizes are the same as mine. Confused yet?

    Love the shoes. Are those also F-Last? Socks seem a little dominant for that combo imho.

    My boots are done! Custom silhouette based on the Old English II boot, but with a heel counter and u-cap. Cigar shell, partially inspired by @NAMOR's u-cap boot. Just wish they were 7" height but they're pretty damn badass as it is.

    damn, those boots look even better a big screen. you killed it exdeath. and no medallions means no ripped medallion :slayer:

    i dont see any reason for a medalion going forth. might be the most superficial, unnessary detail on a pair of shell

    @Exdeath these are so bad ass. I want to order a pair even though I know they won't fit without an insole... Tempted to size down half a size and see if that works for f and p2

    ^ whats your deal again? insole and tongue pad? i would say sizing down one half would work. i took a 45 in my f last boots and they fit 1/2 too big. they measure smaller than my uk11.5 eg 82 last and have a smaller footprint but fit 1/2 sizes bigger. 45 f last norweger shoe fits fine however

    Thanks guys! They're on the F last. I usually take 10UK/11US, got a 44. Hoping they fit alright.

    Ordered it in late Nov/early Dec right before the shell cutoff, but IIRC they have more now

    hope they fit. vass sizing can be wonkey as fuck to say they least

    so far this is what i have discovered works for me (all shell and boots except for norwerger shoe)

    r last 44.5 (a little shorter than f and p2)
    f last 44.5 (fits similar to P2, P2 has slightly taller toe box and roomy vamp)
    p2 last 44.5 (45 norweger shoe)
    u last 45.5 (best fitting. comfortable everywhere can look overly elongated in some angles)

    uk11.5 in eg and g/g

    us 12, alden barrie 11.5c
