    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.

    I agree, but I really prefer sprung lasted trees: it seems to me that they make a higher and uniform pression to the insole, specially at the toe area. Anyway, Vass 3 pieces shoe trees are sublime.

    BTW- I have used a great proxy from SF. He's patient, accommodating and truly concerned with getting it right. After my experiences with him, he may not want to be associated with me, but I will always testify to his exceptional service and follow up skill.

    Thanks! If that's the case looks like F in 41 would work. From pictures they look to be same in width right?


    Looking forward to it! Thanks!

    My sizes -

    Carmina rain - UK 7.5 (loose heel)
    Carmina Simpson UK 7.5 (A little snug at the width, but still bearable)

    Vass f last - 41 (best fit)
    Vass u last - 41 (snug on the width, probably have to size up by half)

    Hi there.

    Vass does use museum calf from Ilcea I believe. In all honesty I feel that Vass' museum calf is better. I have not had any of the Vass MC show the "veiny"pattern earlier described by the gent on SkoaB's thread.
    I also feel that Vass' MC is more supple.
    The only problem I had so far is with the gold museum due to the large inconsistencies in getting the right colour.
    As the gents here have mentioned previously, one shade is extremely dark, the other is considerably lighter.
    Eventually I needed to get a pair re-done.

    Are three piece shoe trees only available for whole sizes? So, those with half sizes are out of luck? And are they really lasted?

    Yes, only whole sizes and if they aren't lasted they're the best fitting non-lasted trees I've ever seen; the fit was perfect
