Apologies for this being non Vass related, but if any of you are visiting Vass in Budapest, I would highly recommend a trip out to see David, a French bespoke shoe maker one hour outside of Budapest.

http://davidbalazic.com/site/index.php/en/

I found out about him reading Justin's (the shoe snob) blog the other week and I made a trip out to visit him earlier this week. Amazing little workshop in the most picturesque village of Nagymaros, although hadn't realized I needed to take a small ferry to reach the village.

He said he only makes about 6 bespoke shoes per year, cost starting upwards of €1,200. But is looking to start a more MTM limited range.

He also runs "classes" on how to make shoes.

He was the only person in Hungary that I have found that will install flush metal toe taps. Going back on Wednesday to collect my 8 pairs that I left and maybe commission him to patina a pair of my shoes.

If this is of any interest to anyone, I will take some photos when I am there next week.

Back to Vass - my latest MTO red/suede boots should be ready for collection on the 20th December. Turnaround seems to be getting quicker.

Those don't look like my mid brown, or the mid brown on the Vass site, or NMWA's site, etc. "Regular" brown looks a bit darker though. I wonder if that was a custom, or small run batch of suede? Looks great whatever it is!

+1 one @RogerP - Stupendous !!! Wear them in good health as we say !!!

I think I've seen a Bonafe like that, but can't recall a Vass.

After buying two pairs of Vass at one I told myself I was done buying shoes till spring. But these great examples of suede especially the red brown suede have really been calling my name. 

 

I think I'm gonna have my salary direct deposited to Vass.

Those plain-toed Oxfords on the "gallery" page are tasty in a Lobb/Paris sort of way. Normally when the vamp seam is pulled further back than normal-- a la G&G-- it can look contrived. By keeping them low but daring to go all the way past the heel, he's made these look very slick indeed.

Only 6 pairs a year? At 1200? How does he live off of that?

Edit: ok, read more closely, he does other shoe repair/patina work, too. Great!

You'll have to look through the thread, but examples of chukkas with goyser have been posted.

+1. Didn't Skoak carry one a year or so ago? I seem to recall Ed carrying a Buday chukka with a full goyser too but I can't find any pics.
