I have bought two shoes from nmwa and I don't even live in NY the gentleman name Greg has been very helpful & helped me majorly with clothing item & AS & vass shoes sizes which I ended up buying and keeping. I would totally recommend them 100%. Very helpful dude icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Allow me to clarify, as poor communication on my part has led to faulty takeaways of Vass, and, perhaps, myself.

 

I asked Vass (with no mention of NMWA, or any other retailer) if they would ship direct to new customers...they said they would. HOWEVER, they strongly recommended a new customer utilize a retailer (they mentioned NMWA with no prompting) to get a proper idea for fit. Though this could be a misinterpretation on my end, nowhere did I explicitly or implicitly get the idea from Vass to size Vass up via NMWA, and return the wares in order to go direct, with knowledge of what would work. I 100% assumed (and hope this to be true) the message was buy from a retailer (NMWA, in this case), understand what fits you, and then place future orders directly if the mood strikes.

 

If anything, this would speak highly in my mind to both the integrity of Vass and the partnership between the two businesses.

 

I can only say I sincerely hope this is not a common (or even infrequent) occurrence for NMWA. That would be shit form from a customer through and through. If done, I would hope there are steps taken (though this seems rather difficult) to prevent said "customers" from making future purchases.

 

I hope this clarifies, and alleviates any consternation caused by assumptions and lack of clarity.

That would bullshit if people did that. NMWA offers great products and pieces and for people to abuse their free shipping both ways is just absolutely wrong.

I know when I was first buying my Vass from NMWA what attracted me was the price, instant satisfaction, and knowing that if I was a 1/2 too big or small there was one in inventory to buy. I had every intention of buying a shoe, not attempting to get the right fit on someone elses dime. So wrong.

Thanks guys. We can move on from this topic. It's part of the business to have a small number of people abuse the system... It isn't the end of the world - the vast majority of customers are honest and don't take us for a ride. It wouldn't be that way if Vass had a more logical and better thought out pricing system for its retail and wholesale business - this is what encourages people to jump through hoops to save some bucks. If I wasn't such a big supporter of Vass from way before opening a store, we would have moved on like all the other U.S. retailers. It's virtually impossible to make money on Vass, and at the same time, I regularly have to read here how we gouge prices... Sigh....

Moving on to Vass pron pics?

Agreed

An update on my Vass alt weins, the scar is just too visible for me to live with and every time I put them on I'll be worried about it. I've gone the return route, and as such, I have been offered a new pair from Vass. I'm thinking about changing the makeup though to either a boot or a double monk. What would be good lasts for the boot? P2? And the double monk?
post #15956 of 20274

P2 is the perfect last for boots IMO

 

(as long as P2 fits your foot well, of course...)

I wear a 42 on the more narrow lasts and a 41.5 on the 3636 last. The 3636 fits pretty spot on and the 42 on the budapesters I have fits well as well. What size on the P2?
post #15958 of 20274
P2 or 3636 for boots. Same size for both

Planning on going with U last Captoe in Oxblood for my next order, and was hoping to get some advice on sizing. I know most people size up for U last but I have narrow feet (9.5B/C) and I feel like I could have sized down to a 42 for the P2 so I'm thinking of just getting 42.5 in the U last.

If you feel that 42 on P2 would work, 42.5 U may work for you.
