    Wonderful! Is it Bordo shell?

    I'm hoping that's "Bordeaux" misspelled. The alternative is that someone came up with a bordello-inspired variant of burgundy.

    Which of the Vass round toe lasts has the highest instep? I understand U has a higher instep than F but I need a rounded toe.

    Curious to hear what others think about this as well, but I should be able to tell you myself this week when my F and P2 lasts arrive from Kolecho.

    P2 being a fair bit lower in profile (and longer) than 3636.

    Does anyone have any decent pictures of the P2 last in an oxford? The ones in the shoe pictorial don't do a great job of showing the last.

    Lordy, lordy.

    What model is this? And where did you order it?

    For that matter, any place in particular where people are placing their orders?

    I can't see this model on the Vass site; anyone know what last this is on and what is the fit like?

    Much obliged.


    It is on the U-Last, some kind of ankle boot. Just describe it to them when you place your order or email a picture.

    Just looking at that sole edge makes me want to make Vass #8 and possibly 9.
