Choosing Your Last

We work with nine different last types. From square to round toe, from wide to slim, you can choose the last that suits you best and matches your individual style.

Last: P2 (Wide Width)

Classical and comfortable. Thanks to its elegant lines and perfect proportions the P2 is one of our most popular lasts and recommended for use with our Derby & Oxford models.

Last: F (Average Width)

This elegant last with an English rounded toecap, is another popular choice: it is narrower than the P2, and is elongated and features a high instep. 

Last: U (Narrow to Average Width)

Similar sizing to the F last, with a slightly asymmetric form. It has a lower instep; its cap is more elongated and squarer.

Last: 3636 (Wide Width)

With its extra width the 3636 provides exceptional comfort.
A round cap last that we recommend for our derby models.

Last: Budapest (Wide Width)

Our company’s trademark the "Budapest” last with its high toe-cap provides exceptional comfort for the toes, and is suitable for models produced with both welted and reverse-welted construction method.

Last: Peter (Wide Width)

The primary last for our Norweger and loafer models. It is a beautifully formed symmetric last with a comfortable instep height.

Last: R (Wide Width)

Quintessentially English last with a shorter round and flat captoe and comfortable high instep. This last is best suited to the Oxford type models.

Last: K (Narrow to Average Width)

One of the elegant tapered lasts in the Vass workshop. This last is elongated due to a narrow waist and has a reflective tilted toecap. 

Last: S (Narrow to Average)

Our latest and most elegantly elongated last. Similar to the U but with a longer and more chiseled toe.
