Maybe it makes sense to place an order and pick it up in person? What is current pricing at the store? Details would be appreciated

 

Selection - limited options compared to how vast the Vass last and color and style catalog is

Price advantage - significant compared to a retailer like No Man Walks Alone or Ascot Shoes

Holiday hours - email Mr. Kuti (general Vass email on their website) and find out their hours

Order for pick up - Vass doesn't like to allow new customers to order directly, they will direct you to a local retailer - you can only order direct if you go to the store (or have someone go for you)

Current pricing - I don't know what it is now (recent posts have indicated a price increase), but in August I paid $450/pair for calf/suede shoes, and $550/pair for shell cordovan shoes (I know the shell price has gone up since) - you get a discount if you pay via bank/wire transfer

@forex At the store, I was offered 10% price reduction if I would have paid in cash, plus free shipping for inside Europe. The selection was not so big but you could try the fitting of all lasts and place your MTO. My advice is to visit the store just when they open (10:00) since during the day it is possible to be very busy.

Can you comment on the SP's instep? I have a low instep and the F and U are relatively too high; I hear the S has a lower instep but I haven't owned a pair yet. I'm wondering where the SP falls...

my first pair of Vass:

 

style 5069 in brown suede on the single leather beveled waist sole on the K last. This was made in a narrow width for me, which you probably can tell right off of the pictures. 

 

 

 

 

 

These shoes hold right up with my other top level shoes from Gaziano & Girling, Edward Green, Enzo Bonafe, etc. 

 

The details and finishing are amazing, the comfort factor is great, and they are very sturdy without being super heavy like my Alden shoes. The suede used on this pair compares directly with my suede shoes from G&G too!

^^^ Most excellent sir - congrats!  Wow a narrow width and K last - you DO have slender feet!

Easy as pie.  I tend to wear mine with sport coats in the spring / summer / fall.
