  I think so. I'd love to see Vass expand to other countries, but I also don't want to lose their ability to customise every order if people want to. I'd love to see them build up a small set of staple models which are stocked in store, with a vast MTO system for people who are willing to wait. That way, us forum denziens can still fiddle with designs and get something unique, and Vass can set up an online store, produce a set of shoes constantly for restocking purposes,...
