    I got them from Vass.



    I'm not really sure but I'll soon find out. I got the idea from another SFer that I bought a pair of Alt Wiens from. He mentioned after he shipped them that he had stuck an extra pair in the shoes because they were slightly too big. They actually fit great without being glued in so I decided to give it a try with some of my other P2s. If they slip, I'll have to have them glued down I guess.

    I'm starting to mentally start putting together a Vass MTO. Does anyone have any feedback WRT to the comfort of a double leather sole which tapers to a single leather sole?

    This is really good advice, I thought I was the only one who experienced this problem of the cap cutting into my little toe, with shoes that are a little loose.
    Could I just ask, what is a sock liner?

    Hey there.
    Yes, I do find that color shade of dark cognac, and also their gold museum does vary quite a bit sometimes.
    I must say though, that this dark cognac pair that I have, has a very strong reddish hue under bright sunlight.

    The sock liners are the leather liners that cover the insole that I posted a pic of a few posts back.

    @TtownMD according to the advice I received from Mr. Kuti, you should be ok sizing down .5 from U to P2. But if there's anything I've learned in this thread over the past 24 hours, it's that Vass sizing embodies the very spirit of YMMV. :)

    Thanks! My apologies. I should have been more observant.

    Thanks, I am quite happy with how they turned out. The original plan was their mid brown museum calf with the red brown suede instead of the dark brown MC. But I think this will still work.
