1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Well, this sucks. Apparently the U-last isn't as narrow as internet rumor has it, and my narrow feet are slipping in these. Soles are 304mm by 103mm.

    $AUD410 shipped worldwide, or $380 shipped in Australia.

    Vass brown punchcaps, worn twice, then bought by me and tried on, and immediately put back in the mailing box with a large sigh of exasperation. Comes with lasted trees and dustbags, but not the original Vass box.

    $580 total and I'll throw in these monks, which seem to be for the same size foot as the Vass.

    Sorry to disagree with you, but these are better for a US 9 or 9.5.

    The U-last is narrow and with those measurements a 10 or 10.5 would find these quite tight.

    Great price and good luck with the sale,

    I thought I was a size 9, and they'd best suit a foot about 1cm (3/8") longer and 1cm wider than mine. So if my foot is 27.5cm long (10 7/8") and 9cm wide (3.5"), what does that make me?

    Edit: Well, apparently you're on the sizing issue based on the nominal size. I've updated the thread. I will say this though: If your foot isn't at least 28cm long, I think you're going to find these too long and wide.
