Vass Alt English Oxblood Calf in size 8.5F (I am pretty sure this is US sizing) - $325 shipped standard USPS in the CONUS. Reasonable offers also considered!

SOLD!

Beautiful pair of handmade Vass Alt English in Oxblood calf in 8.5F. I believe these shoes are on the F-last but please see photos of the inner shoe for model confirmation.

Beautiful oxblood color and construction. Outdoor light photos are probably the best representation of the color. I picked these up from Epaulet a while ago but they are too tight for my high instep. For reference, I wear an 8.5E/9D on the Alden Barrie last and these are a bit snug in length and tight across the vamp which is why I believe they're US sizing. For additional reference, on the Vass 3636 last I wear a size 42.5

Thanks for looking!

If only they were in size 41/41.5. Dayum

They might work for you! I wear a 8.5E on the Alden Barrie last and I found these a bit tight on length and definitely tight on the width/instep!

Outsole measurements?

Also, is Alden Barrie size 8,5E normal width or wide?

Sizing is confusing. These are marked a UK 8.5 (approx. US 9.5) but you state that you're an 8.5E on the Barrie last (which I assume is US sizing), meaning you'd be a UK 7.5 (approx.) Then you mention that these are too tight in instep and length.

Guess I'm confused - could you clarify? Feel free to PM if that's easier.
