    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.

    I just wanted to confirm my understanding of Vass U-last sizing from reading this board. Because of the enlongated last, one should size up 1/2. So if I were 9D in AE Park Avenue, I would be 42.5 in Vass U-last? Is this correct?

    Also wondering about K-last sizing - I understand the K-last is a bit shorter (more rounded toe) than the U-last?

    Not sure how Vass compares to AE, but I believe the rule around here is to size up 0.5 size from F to U last. Perhaps better to ask the AE question in the Vass thread, although I would not be surprised if that has been dealt with previously.

    I wear an 8.5 in most Allen Edmonds' lasts and a 42 in the U-last, though some who post here, including some whose experience and knowledge far outstrip my own, have had different results. I have also heard rumblings about a recent change in Vass sizing, but I have not experienced it myself.
