Anyone know if Vass have any green shell?

Last time I checked (admittedly a few months ago), it was only antic cognac (dark brown), and Bordeaux (color 8).

I think Buday may stock exotic colors. I know they have navy.

Wow, those are gorgeous! Your mid brown doesn't look at all red, either. And it kind of makes sense to me that mid brown should be, y'know, like medium brown. :-)

Anyway, beautiful combo. What adjustment was done to the last?

Thanx Roger!
It is indeed pure mid brown, no red in it at all. Have some mid brown oxfords from Vass since before and those are much more snuff/polo -ish. I saw your post with some beutiful brown suede oxfords. Had Rezsö confirming those are "deep brown", a quite new addition between dark brown and mid brown.
Saw that on the Shoegazing Super Trunk II we arranged in Stockholm last September, a truelly rich, beutiful brown color, less "dusty" compared to the dark brown.

With regards to adjustments - I have quite severe hallux valgus issues (enlarged "ball"), meaning that in my normal right size (lengtwise) there is painful push on the big toe joint. Rezsö measured my feet at the trunk and adjusted a standard F-last to accommodate this.

I'd say that Rogers are what Reszö call "deep brown", while mine are "mid brown".

Here's a pic of my three years Old oxfords, ordered as "mid brown". Very different story...reddish and much more snuff/polo.

Another pic of the suede, indoor ligthing, compared to an old (three years) Oxford which was at the time called mid brown.

I just send this picture, probably taken from SF, along with any suede order. Clears things up (as clear as they can be with Vass).
