Will surely be a real good looking chukka!

^I love those Namor, they were in my mind for a long time.  I was really thinking to go for Vibram instead of double leather soles for my Osloer, as I finally did.

Please let me (us) see your boots. How are your experience with the green museum calf? I was a little suprised that it was so dark. Not in a bad way, I think it is quite nice that it varies that much with different light.

 

 

My green calf is some short of racing green; they seem a bit lighter.  Here you are.

Love that green and that boot :slayer:

I concur. It's a well executed "exotic" by the shoeman!

No coments on the sloppy stitching on the apron of both boots? Zapasman what do you think, have you received them yet?

Yes, and it is been discussing here before by other members.  In this kind of boot...I do not care at all.  Once in your feet is not much visible, in fact I like them. I am very permissive with Vass and not to much picky about this things (It is not a JL or a GG shoe/price).:)

Well, the shoeman was a bit sleepy that day.

 

Thanks a lot Namor.

Introducing the Vass for Shoegazing Sarek boot, a "Valway"-version made with vegetable tanned natural grain leather from the small Swedish tannery Tärnsjö, in a chestnut color. Made on the P2 last with a single Dainite sole. First time Vass does a larger series of shoes with leathers from a supplier that aren't their own regular stuff. Tärnsjö's leathers are really cool, and develop a great patina pretty fast.
Me and the moderators of the forum on my blog made the specs together with Vass. It will be sold at an event I'm hosting in Stockholm this Saturday, a "super trunk" with Vass, Meermin, Carlos Santos, Riccrdo Bestetti and Maftei, plus Gaziano & Girling bespoke, Italigente, Melker Shoes, Tony Slinger and more. They've made like 10-12 pairs, and those that are left after the event will be sold afterwards, and they have some leather left they can do stuff with.

Thanks! E-mail info@vass-cipo.hu . As mentioned those that are left after the event can be purchased by others, and you can also order a pair and have it made if you're size is sold since they have some leather left (I'm not sure how it is with direct sales to the States with these, since they are a special make up, best is to ask Vass directly). Price are €590 including lasted shoe trees.

That boot is full of win.  I think I need a Valway in my rotation.

I think with the recent EG price hikes Valway's are going to become increasingly common.

Be sure.

 

Thats  exactly the model I had in mind (Vassway´s with 4 eyelet and 4 speedhooks) with double leather sole and mid brown or tobacco suede. In 2016 they are here.:rotflmao:

^^^ Glad you like the boots guys! Yeah, Valway is a good one.
