The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 857post #12842 of 2026610/16/14 at 8:54amQuote:Originally Posted by Zapasman
Hi again, I have not received yet my first two pairs of Vass, and I am already thinking about next order in 2015. Is this madness or what!! (only a friend of mine here I can share it with, and of course you!!). No budget at all, but still on!!" src="http://files.styleforum.net/images/smilies/decisions.gif" />
I am sure I will go for RTW Double Monkstraps in Oxblood calf (RogerP and some others show me the masterpiece... thank you) in F most probably or P2 last, but before deciding myself It will be much apreciated if you could kindly answer me:
a).-Will Vass charge me for HAF sole and toe metal tips on top of RTW?.
b).-Any pics of a double sole in Double Monkstraps?. No one?
c).-Names of the diff models of buckles: rounded one (love it) / square /others.
d).-What do you think of the P/P2 lasts for the model compare to F last?.
e).-Any pic in P2 Double Monks?. No one?
Gracias to you all again for your inputs and comments.
I own but one example of the P2 and it is a tall boot. That said, my preference would be for the F last for a sleeker double monk. I prefer P2 for more casual styles of shoes.
I've not ordered through Vass directly, but since you are going that route, just ask them for a quote based on all the specs you want.post #12843 of 2026610/16/14 at 9:11am
Once I get my first pairs I´ll contact Vass about prices for HAF+metal guards on top of RTW. I´m going to see first how are my P2 last in an OE Oxford (I wanted something sturdy) to figure out how would be the P2 last in the DMonks. I´m pretty sure not good combo but wanted to see.
I am thinking to get either the DM in Oxblood calf (yours) or in Dark Brown Museum calf with a same colour belt. Both colours are amazing to me and hard to decide!!.
Gracias.post #12844 of 2026610/16/14 at 10:27ampost #12845 of 2026610/16/14 at 1:40pmpost #12846 of 2026610/19/14 at 12:54ampost #12847 of 2026610/19/14 at 4:58ampost #12848 of 2026610/19/14 at 5:52amQuote:
The toe stiffener should not...probably does not...extend as far back as the little toe on most feet. So, all other things being equal, you can usually stretch the shoe in that area. A cobbler can do it with almost pinpoint accuracy and you won't have to endure the discomfort of breaking it in.
That said, if there is wingtip on the shoe, it can change the whole equation. If the edge of the wingtip is on or near the affected area it can cause pain and feel as if the toe is being squeezed even if there is adequate room inside the shoe. Again, the shoe can be stretched but because of the seam it is more difficult to see results in the short term.You may have to stretch it several times.post #12849 of 2026610/19/14 at 11:19ampost #12850 of 2026610/19/14 at 8:06pmpost #12851 of 2026610/20/14 at 3:22ampost #12852 of 2026610/20/14 at 1:21pmpost #12853 of 2026610/20/14 at 1:22pmpost #12854 of 2026610/20/14 at 1:24pmpost #12855 of 2026610/20/14 at 1:24pm
