The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 1019

post #15271 of 20221
The only downside i know of is cost and wastage, some makers pass the cost over to you especially on a seamless wholecut, which takes more work. One shoemaker tells me it has to sit longer in a last but for reasons i do not know.

I like them alot. FWIW, Vass has refused to make me a pair of unseen "seamless heel" so it is not available as an option on all their models.

I have heard that wholecuts stretch out more than normal shoes though.

Interesting. Some makers use two rows of stitching around the heel.

I didn't find this to be the case on Carmina and Vass, but it may look that way due to the lack of seams "structure" keeping it together.

Can I ask for the specs/details of the middle one?  A side pic? 

Thanks

Is this from vass? Last I checked with kuti they don't do seemless heel. Unless they have another method to achieve this...

Am thinking of a wholecut with such heel...

They do seamless heels, but not seamless wholecut.

Actually I just remembered I had this crummy pic of them, taken at the ice rink. Not a very good shot but you can get the idea.

What are your thoughts on the grain? Not too broad/large?

Personally, I really like them. I think Vass stocks 5 different colors too: http://vass-shoes.com/en/howtoorder#text-4

to encapsulate the discussion of horsehide vs shell cordovan, horsehide will crease whereas cordovan will not crease, but only "roll"? 

 

the shoes below are not vass, but judging from the bends, are this closer to creasing", rather than rolling?

Is that Meermin's new shell?  Still looks like shell, just doesn't seem like the dye and/or finish is that stable.

post #15285 of 20221

Good example to guess.  Difficult to tell for me; the creasing looks like calf leather rather than shell, but the white colour of it indicates shell.  I have no horsehide.
