Is it the heavily waxed horse/calf sold as shell that @RIDER
has pointed out in the past?

If fake shell is easier to maintain than real shell...then please let me have the "fake" shell...

Shell only appears to need two things to keep it looking decent:

 

 

1.  Brush it.

 

2.  Brush it some more.

What is the best way to acquire VASS shoes in New York? I guess is there a retailer?

Very Nice Justin - you should see a few of the Black Calf Sample Vass on our IG page shortly.

I like the colour very much but it is a bit too waxy for my taste.

 

Is that horse leather (what part?) treated by Horween like Shell?.

post #15176 of 20248

Great makeup! Is that oxblood? This will definitely influence my next order.

F last Vass again today, also from @Sammy - Ascot.


post #15178 of 20248

I can understand shell issues (Ascot said Vass even had to return some to Horween), but there's no way Vass would risk its reputation on anything other than shell. It would just say "No"...like it mostly does now. Why deal with horseshit when you've got great calf.

Osloer. This batch of whiskey is pretty similar to the saddle I have, but I love the color and finishing. P2 in my usual size, and it is one of my better fitting shell boots/shoes. I can actually get by with  a thin sock. The stitching on the vamp does help to give it a more F like appearance. Now I just need to prevent myself from ordering one in every color.

@justinkapur - I attach the pair of Black Calf in New Peter Last size 43 you were referring to. A sample MTO.  

Has a unique punched U apron with medallion. 

 

FYI: The toes on the New Peter a touch more comfortable than the F last.
