Mass drop aims to get the best price for customers with a minimum quantity to hit. They aren't looking to get huge margins. They are looking to get some margin but pass along a deal to folks interested. It's a great community and I've made a few purchases there and will continue to support them

Offer me a quality product at a reasonable price & I'll be there when I'm in the market...I look forward to seeing what they might offer in the future...and hope they don't screw me again next time around (although I do understand the reasons).

I assume part of the upcharge is for all the service you're getting, including being able to return the shoes if they don't work out.

IMO, for first time Vass customers, it's very useful to have that return option, since Vass shoes aren't always sized consistently. I take a 42 in the P2 lasted Alt Wien, but have to size down to a 41.5 in the P2 lasted Theresianer. Same last, but different sizes.

I really love these shoes but they are simply to tight for me.

 

(see my signature)!

 

 

 

I will be visiting the US next week if anyone is still interested in this bargain :)

Thanks Pepper! You were the main enabler for me to try Vass hahaha. It's just burgundy calf, F last, old english 2 with rubber taps. Extra burnish on the toes.

^^^ Excellent choice - congrats!

En route:






Cognac suede on New Peter.

Edit: I just want to say that there are definitely charming aspects to dealing with Vass - from the construction "glitches" to the glitches in communication. All of this can drive an obsessive-compulsive person to suicide, but in all I find it a quirky enjoyable process. And this is all because Rezso Kuti is so good at what he does, along with, of course, the fantastic shoes you get at this price.
