To any of my American SFers who have traveled to Budapest can you please message me? I have a few tourist questions for you. Thanks

Gentlemen,

 

In your estimation, can you show me the dressiest versions of Vass Blucher boots?

Thanks.

Namor, you have such an amazing collection of cordovans from all around the world.  For you to get some Alden would almost be regressing...

 

Ha, not sure if serious...

 

The Plaza is my fav Alden last though...

 

If you are serious, Congrats my Friend.

ha! plaza is one of my favorite boot lasts of all time. I was crushed when I couldnt get the color 8 boot so I tried to replicate it with a vass budapester boot in "antique cognac) on u last. while similar they are not quite the same.





left to right: vass f last (45f), Edward green G 202 last (uk11.5E), Alden Plaza (12D), Vass U last (45.5)

This is what I am working towards.

 

That Cigar Plaza boot is perhaps one of the finest examples of boot making I have ever seen.

 

Amazing.

 

How would you compare Alden to Vass overall?

alden and vass are 2 of my favorite 5 shoe makers. they each make high quality shoes and have their own unique aesthetic. vass makes better looking "dressy" shoes while alden makes some of the finest "casual" makeups. ultimately you have to judge them by each particular makeup. for example, I would much rather have a p2/f last boot instead of barrie. for soft square ill take plaza over u last every time

^^^Dude, I had the chance to buy the #8 Plaza boot and regret it all the time.

 

Those are amazing.

 

I have been telling people for a long time that Plaza is underrated.  I believe it to be the greatest American made last available.

 

Not to derail the Vass thread, but here is one of my favorite shoes in my meager collection:
