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.

The boots look fantastic, even better that they're made from the Tarnsjo leather SkoaB has been using of late. Seems a match made in heaven.
I'm a 100% certain though that they will be completely sold out if only 10-12 pairs were made.
Hopefully there is another run some time in the future.
