I've only used museum in a dress shoe application, so none of this 'rode hard and put up wet' nonsense. Though I don't know anyone who actually does that to their premium shoes. Bottom line, durability hasn't presented as an issue for me, though if I were looking for a field boot I would probably choose something else.post #14343 of 200433/17/15 at 11:13ampost #14344 of 200433/17/15 at 11:35amQuote:Originally Posted by RogerP

More something that I could wear to work daily and not worry too much if it is raining or the weather is somewhat poor. I have real boots for snow and field use, although, it would be nice if I didn't have to worry about them too much in winter weather.post #14345 of 200433/17/15 at 11:46amI've read some reports of people experiencing spotting on museum calf - similar to shell. I had it happen on one of my Vass museums, but not on the other. Curiously, it only happened the first time they got rained on. Not afterwards. Maybe I put on a better coat of wax after I cleaned them than what came from the workshop.post #14346 of 200433/17/15 at 11:50ampost #14347 of 200433/17/15 at 11:58ampost #14348 of 200433/17/15 at 12:03pmpost #14349 of 200433/17/15 at 12:22pmpost #14350 of 200433/17/15 at 12:33pmpost #14351 of 200433/17/15 at 12:37pmpost #14352 of 200433/17/15 at 3:40pmpost #14353 of 200433/17/15 at 4:03pmpost #14354 of 200433/18/15 at 8:15amQuote:Originally Posted by bobbers
I was in Budapest last week. Prices were HUF 135000 for the standard lasts and HUF 155000 for the Italian lasts. I didn't see the price of boots, as the gorgeous U- and F- last boots are way too narrow for me. Price was HUF 210000 for custom shoes, but it requires a second shop visit. I asked about a VAT deduction (since I was leaving the EU) and they either didn't understand me or pretended not to know, so I asked for and got a 10% cash discount. HUF 9000 for trees.
I have a wide foot and asked what would fit well. First they had me try a Budapester in the 3636 last, it was a little loose in the heel so they had me try something in New Peter last and that was an instant no. Next I tried a pair of Budapest model in the Budapest last and it fit well so I bought it, though my right foot is a bit wider than my left; I'm hoping it will break in over time. The only other in stock model they had in Budapest last was the London model. I went back the next day to get a pair of those but they didn't have the color I wanted. So they'll make it in stock size and stock last (but I chose the color: Antique Cognac Calf) at no extra charge, though HUF 3000 to ship to USA.
I also wanted to note that the three saleswomen were very patient with me on both days I went. I had read other reports that the salespeople were unfriendly; I did not come across any negativity at all. I went to the smaller shop both times.
I also went to the Attila and Buday shops. Unfortunately Rozsnyai was closed when I went; if people are interested I can create a separate post about my time there.
Thanks for the info. So I just called Vass, and they told me that one can just order over the internet for the same price. I feel really dumb buying my first pair from No Man Walks Alone now.post #14355 of 200433/18/15 at 8:19amQuote:
If you are in Texas, Vass will not sell to you directly unless you had been a customer before they made the changes to their direct sales policy. You have to buy from one of the US retailers or go through a proxy buyer.
