And yes, Vass shell cordovan offerings are what draw me to the brand.

Of course not.

 

The whole appeal of Vass just adds to the desire to procure a pair.

 

Especially their hand made nature.

 

Cordovan or calfskin.

 

Thanks.

This and the variation with fit from one pair to another on the same last and size.which keeps coming up seems a bit problematic to me as well.

There's also a certain appeal with a number of Edward Greens iconic styles and their burnishing which appeals to me as well. For me it's also comforting that I have never had to worry about any quality issues when purchasing Edward Green shoes or boots. Although it doesn't seem to occur often, it does appear that Vass has more occurrences than anything I have heard or read with regards to Edward Green.

Overall I think Vass makes a great looking shoe and well constructed shoe, however my preference is more towards Edward Green, Gaziano and Girling, or St Crispins.

I see your point.  If you have not yet pulled the trigger (little experience?), do yourself a favor an buy one pair of your liking (if there is any, of course).  Once done, I am sure you will post a lot here.:colgate:

Good Point.

 

@NAMOR  Its your cordovan boots that have brought me here.

 

Would you say that the "F" last is more elegant and formal than the "R" last?

 

Much Appreciated My Friend.

I actually purchased a pair awhile back. I went with an OE II which is one of the Vass shoes that appeals to me most, it was on the F Last.

On the contrary, I was rather pleased. It's just at this point I find the other brands I mentioned more compelling.

ooof thats tough. f last is slightly longer with a lower instep. both are lovely to look at and deserving of a "sexiest last of the year" award

r last has the more generous instep and is wider across the ball. basically if you cant fit f last, go with r. and once you have an f last, buy an r last boot to compare and enjoy with your favorite wine and cheese pairing

r last



f last






its a win, win, win, win, win, win to me

Your opinion holds a lot of weight to me, just cuz I know your experience with Vass spans over a few years and quite a few makeups.

 

This is what I am considering:

 

In Antique Cognac Cordovan.

 

My Homeboy @Notch is trying to make it happen.
