The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 1038

post #15556 of 20252

Gentlemen,

 

Is it alright for me to ask you dear chaps to tell me a bit about the Vass Budapest Last and how it fits?

 

Thanks for your help.

These are size 44.5 and feels great. Might need to pad up the tongue sometime though as the instep is quite generous on the U. Also went from metal toe taps to rubber ones as I don't want to vandalize any indoors floor surfaces.

Speaking of Q check issues: they forgot THE WHOLE HEEL COUNTER on these Old English plains!

But I quite like the seamless heel so they are keepers.

Pictures taken at 9.50 PM in the swedish midsummer night so no direct sunlight on the oxblood calf.

These are so very classy. I love how the U-last looks in larger sizes. Seemless heel also looks very clean.

Thanks @TtownMD and @MonteCarlo! First test wear for three hours today feels great! And they are beautiful to look at from top down.

Also I was not 100% correct referring to the "missing heel counter" as a quality issue or fault. They actually made me another model as they do have the Old English model both with and without heelcounters. With the ancient - but very personal - ordering system this slight mishap does not come as a big surprise

Battle of the split toes !

Could you give us the make and models for each?  My initial thought was the darker pair, but the toe is a bit too squared for me, so I would go with the lighter pair, also has a more refined feel to it throughout the make

if I'm not mistaken, the darker pair is EG Dover

It is

Although I may not like the darker finish the overall design and the hand sewn technique on the Dover looks much better.

Yep. It's a Dover in Dark Oak on the 606 last.

Does anyone have some wear pics of the antic cognac cordovan alt wein? Mine are due to ship out here shortly and I'm getting anxious. smile.gif

The other one is on the U last - with the dark cognac leather. Its made differently than the norweger which is the traditional Vass split toe. I think Vass did a very good job given its not one of their standard models.

 

What is not evident from these pics is how large the Dover is compared to the U last. The length and width are more or less the same but the Dover is significantly taller.

Vass looks very Italian
EG looks very English

Both are gorgeous and I would be happy with either.
