    Picked up my Vass Monk boots. F last, H width. Gold museum calf. Lovely color! Also very nice work on the welt and sole edge.

    Fit is really good! For those interested, I have included a comparison to H width U and P2 lasts (P2 is a full size down).

    The h-width for F didn't look clunky surprisingly.

    Are the u last double monks and p2 suede in regular width? Does f last in h-width fit similar to p2?

    All 3 are width. The F and U are 44.5 and the P2 is 43.5. I'd say roomiest to tightest would be F > P2 > U. Although a P2 in the same size as F would be falling off. Even a 44 H was too long for me.

    I will probably wear medium weight socks with these boots or add a thin sockliner due to my low step. Length X width they are a good fit.

    And yes, I think Vass does a good job making the wider lasts proportionally pleasing.

    in your opinion, do they make the insole wider for the H or do they just add volume over the F/G sized insole?

    I have both F and U in standard and wide fit (G). I believe that the toe box is slightly wider in G fit (for the better IMO), but outsoles are more or less the sama between the differen widths. Hard to say regarding insole.

    I've found Vass to be very straightforward about that sort of information - I'd email.

    I've only ever owned H width Vass shoes, so I can't compare. But yes, Mr Kuti will be able to tell you, I'm sure.

    Maybe this is even mentioned in Mr. Vass' book.

    Its really a good question @sleepysanfran. However I read nothing about having to make a wider insole in Vass´ book. If I am not mistaken he estates in its graphic an increase in girth of 5mm, but I never had clear that point ( waist/ heel/instep/toe cap ...?).

    I decided to place an order for the Vass Valway. Similar to what Namor ordered a while back, though I won't be cashing out for the Cordovan. Instead, plan on going with the Dark Brown Calf/ Brown Suede Shaft on Dainite sole.

    I would like to have rounded toes as possible but not P2 rounded ..

    So, I guess this sums it up to either R or F last.

    Is the R last actually more rounded than the F?

    Price is pretty good for these boots in calf/suede combo .. 550 EUR + 10% cash discount as I understood.. Budapest is very near my home town, but I wanted to come up with mind pre-set and avoid wasting Kuti's time ..

    Hey guys so I'm looking at two new pairs but just trying to decide on the colors for each:

    U wing shoe on U last

    And

    V cap shoe on K last


    For one pair I am going to do:

    Plum museum with burgundy suede

    And

    Gold museum with the mid brown suede


    I want to have the main shoe upper be the calf and the upper part (if a balmoral) or the Adelaide part to be the suede.




    Any thoughts ? I currently have one V cap Adelaide Oxford in a dark burgundy calf so I am leaning towards to gold museum for the V cap but am opened to either another Adelaide style or a balmoral like the V cap Old Enlgish II (don't have either)

    For the U wing Oxford, I think an Adelaide could be a cool combination but I'm also opened to a balmoral style but think the plum museum and burgundy calf will work nicely with this style.
