Vass shoes direct from Budapest - Page 6

post #76 of 283
What size would people recommend for the 3636 and Budapest lasts for me if I am a 41 in the F last and a 41.5 in the U last?
Thanks.

Thanks.

41, as neither 3636 nor Budapest is narrow, as is the U, which warrants an 'upsize'.

as per www.xe.com, forint is below 240 to the usd. Their currency seems to be in free-fall. Perhaps best to hold off and renegotiate prices later in the spring?

Not a bad idea.... I just ran their history from 10/1 and they are losing ~.0048/day to the USD. This is reminding me fondly of the '80s and my youthful excursions w/friends to Tijuana. $20 bucks in your pocket meant an evening of bountiful alcohol, drugs and oral services. Possibly a 'show' or two for entertainment. I love the (old) Peso with all of its decimals in conversion to USD. I digress.

Get back into your Corvette, Mike. Just keep the Eddie Money on the 8 track turned down low.

The insults are definitely uncalled for. I had valid questions, and did not have time to read everything posted because some of us actually work for a living. I missed some info, that's my mistake. But if you don't have anything constructive to say about the discussions here, keep your ignorant comments to yourself.

If you don't have time to read a four page thread use the money you earn by working for a living to fly to Budapest and order the shoes yourself when you have vacation. If it's not an option you're gonna have to take 5 minutes off your busy schedule to read the threads you're interested in.

I think you're missing the point and making a fool of yourself. I did read the post, which listed the prices and terms of the proxy. But then it looked like the prices and terms had changed, so I wanted to ask if that was the case before I made a purchase. I am very grateful for this exceptional deal, and am looking forward to getting Vass a great price.

I am a size 10.5UK/11DUS in Edward Green 202 last. What size would I be in Vass Shoe U Last? I know TC11201 said he's a 45 in the U last. Anyone else who is a 10.5uK/11DUS with EGs on the 202 last care to weigh in on the U Last equivalent? I guess always easier to buy half size down as shoes expand with wear than to buy too large and try and use inserts.

I'd go with 44.5 on U last.

Children, children. Play nice please. Re: currency speculation, keep in mind that Vass pays euros for their leather and dollars for their cordovan. Their costs are likely to increase at some point, which will get passed on to you. There are also questions as to the continued strength of the dollar. YMMV.

look, regarding currency, there is only speculation. during these tough economic times, the US dollar seems to be one of the strongest going. During bloomberg tv over the weekend, eastern europe is supposed to spiral downward... thus raising the prices of materials for Vass. Vass prices have not gone up really, so this is bound to happen. No time like the present to buy if you want a pair, seems to be a fair deal. Lets break down the pricing. Let's assume the deal is something along the lines of 100,000 forints for U/F lasts (down from 115k) which is about 10% paid in cash discount - is about $450 (exchange rate and related fees). Then factor in shipping which can be about $50, and MTO fees. Which is about $500ish. Then Tom's fees make the transaction overall quite fair.
