    David- what's your sizing?

    44 on the U and 43.5 on the F and P2. I do have some room in the P2, but more width-wise than length-wise.

    Just the fact that I don't know what the length of the Budapest last is compared to the P2 since I haven't tried one on before.

    ask vass. should be easy.

    Does anyone here wears a US 12D/E? If so, can you tell me your size in Vass, preferably F last?

    Here:

    the P2 is sleeker in person than in pics. These feel substantial without being clunky. I'd love them in scotchgrain cognac or Oxblood..
    6319 is not quite so orange as in first 2 pics.

    Pliny,

    Thanks for the great pictures, as always. I was worried initially that the p2 last was too blobby, but i think it strikes a nice balance for this type of shoe, and probably more suitable for the goyser stitching i got on it. Absolutely love the simplicity of yours - might be tempted to get another p2 norweger but in scotchgrain.

    Great pics, great looking shoe.

    Very nice. The original Peter looks even nicer with the Norweger, but you need pretty slim feet to squeeze in.

    I'm about due to get a pair almost like these, but in Antik Cognac on the 3636-- which I don't recall seeing done anywhere before. Let's hope!

    Unfortunately Vass won't do the high boots in shell cordovan anymore. Sad.

    Nope. They can topy leather soles, but the vibram is the only rugged rubber sole they have.

    this pair is great. what are the details of this model? last/leather/soles

    I believe it's the NST in cigar shell cordovan with natural soles and goyser welt.

    P2 or Peter? Looks like P2 to me, but I'm not sure.

    I may need to order a pair.

    Any comments on fit comparing F and P2?

    Bastardo! Yeah, I believe they used to do them, but won't now for whatever reason.

    Great pics, great looking shoe.


    Cheers - I was surprised when I first saw P2 in the flesh as it's not at all blobby IMO. Quite sleek really, and I believe Vass meant it as a first foray into sleeker Italian/English styles - the Cusey post on Vass in AAAC has more about it. I like the simplicity too - I wanted to get a really nice shoe I could wear casually without feeling overdressed, and I think this does it. The Goyser stitching sounds great - did you go contrast colour or try to match it?

    Very nice. The original Peter looks even nicer with the Norweger, but you need pretty slim feet to squeeze in.

    I'm about due to get a pair almost like these, but in Antik Cognac on the 3636-- which I don't recall seeing done anywhere before. Let's hope!


    Cusey reckons the Budapester shows off the Vass Norweger style best, but to me that really would look blobby. Very keen to see it on the 3636, I've been tempted but afraid the fit won't work.

    P2 or Peter? Looks like P2 to me, but I'm not sure.

    I may need to order a pair.

    Any comments on fit comparing F and P2?


    The P2 is very similar in fit to the F - just a little wider forward of the heel. When you look at the trees the P2 obviously has more volume all round. The F sole shape is more of an hour glass. The waist on the P2 is not beveled and the heel is broader and a millimetre or two shorter. I don't find the P2 particularly wide. It's just a great round-toed last.
