    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    These are standard welt, duble sole, U last, size US 10. Don't think they are bumper like.

    U last sizing? I wear a perfect US11.5D and 10.5EUK in Lobbs and CJs. I have the Budapest last in a 45.5 and they fit like a US12 (a bit large on me). I think the Budapest runs a little big?
    Should I get 45 or 45.5 for a pair of Vass in U-last?[​IMG]

    PS. This is also posted in another Vass thread, I need all the input I can get.

    Vox,

    I love the work done on your Budapest on Alt Wien last. I've seen such shoes in real but i do not dare buying a pair as they look a bit too "roundish" and "clunky" for my taste.

    Have to agree; those are beautiful and in no way clunky, even if sturdy. Wow.

    Does anyone know what an EU41 on the U-Last corresponds to in US sizes? I purchased two pairs of 41's and I'm hoping they fit my size 8 feet. Should I start preparing B&S threads or will I be good to go?

    You will be just fine as long as you don't have wide or large volume feet.

    Outstanding collection and very nice to see them all together. The u-tip above is one of my all-time favourite shoes that I have seen on SF.

    Can someone explain to me the differences between the F last and the U last? I've purchased a pair of oxfords and chukka's in the U last. They fit me well enough. However, I'm wondering if such a fit would change and in what manner for the F last.
