    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.

    F last is a great last! I'm sure Mr Kuti will be able to help you nail the correct length and width.

    PSA: Heads up on a Vass Valway Pre-order, (if you haven't subscribed to the mailing list.)

    2 sweet make-ups, looks like delivery will be Sept/Oct, which is ideal IMO. Choose F or P2 last and sole, which is a nice touch! I was all over the anti-cognac/dark brown scotch, but that bordeaux/red suede has me thinking twice... Anyways I'd love to see it make the 12 minimum to get it off the ground; no affiliation on my end so contact vendor for any questions.

    I'm in but can't decide. I'll be swinging by Jok's place to check out the samples. Both winners for sure.

    Especially since the Canadian dollar is down. Like $750-$800 US.

    Took me about 5 minutes to cave like a sinkhole and join that Valway preorder. I chose the red suede, F last, and HAF sole with metal toe tap. My wife will be so happy.

    I tried on the SP-last in Budapest and it is very narrow. If I remember correctly Vass doesn't make it in the wider widths? I have wide feet and had a modified last made after first ordering a couple of too large pairs in the U-last. Considering a pair of modified SP austerity wingtip galosh gold museums for my next order (wingtip balmoral for you non-US guys).

    These are on my modified F-last in plum museum:

    Would you say the SP is just as wide as the U last?

    Mr. Kuti explained that the toe is more generous.

    For what it's worth, that is the objectively correct decision. Tell her some guy on the internet said so.

    I'm Just trying out F last EUR 40 Oxford, is that a fit? The seller is not here so no one could tell me sadly.

    You should listen to what Reszö says! :)

    The toe box is more roomy in the SP than the U (and K) which taper off much more aggressively over the pinky toe. However the overall last shape of the SP is elegantly slim and suits a normal to narrow foot width. There are probably a few gentlemen here who actually own a pair who could give an even better opinion...!

    Most importantly, how do they feel? They appear to fit just fine.

    Is the middle/waist of the foot secure? Does the heel sit snug but comfortable and not pop up when walking? Toes not having excessive pressure? I can see by the lacing gap that its not tight on the instep.

    If they feel good to you, they fit
