@ovlov Good information and that sounds like a pleasant way to spend part of your day!
Did you get measured at Attila or just have a chat?
Interesting what Attila said about VAT. This may ultimately come down to what constitutes "handmade" footwear in the context of the Hungarian tax code. That's well beyond me.
Attila is almost certainly significantly smaller than either Rozsnyai or Vass or Buday.
Note that Vass does quote prices ex VAT. I have not bought shoes direct...
