The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 1242

post #18616 of 20260
Been a lurker for a while but bit the bullet and bought my first pair of Vass the other day. Vass Oxford's in Bordeaux, k last. What do you think?





Must admit bit of a newbie when it comes to shoes but love these!

I went to all three this summer and all were great. If someone opens up a traditional tavern, serving traditional rakia, and playing traditional music but making it non-smoking, they will make a mint. My fiancee and I absolutely hate smoking but you couldn't drag us out of those places even at 4:00am. We had so much fun that we didn't even bother going to the bars on the Danube playing modern music.

Potential Valway makeup

1. Antic cognac calf and cognac grain


2. Bordeaux calf and red suede


What do you think?

I like both options. The burgundy suede looks very similar to my shell version. Option 1 is intriguing because the pebble shaft appears lighter than the uppers which is uncommon. I think a darker shaft makes sense (to me) because i wear darker trousers and prefer less contrast where the pant hem ends and boot begins

U-caps




These are undoubtedly (along with nst/split toes) the least "liked" boots i own. But ill be damned if i let that change anything.

I love those @NAMOR!

Thanks man they are one if my favorites. The saddle color has darkened up too resembling my desired shade of whiskey

i wonder how they would be in a two tone boot?

 

Does anyone know if there is a U cap shoe that Vass also has? If so, I wonder if a two tone would work well with that too.

The burgundy versions is full of win. I'm going to try to dig up a pic of a Carmina boot that I think presents a better colourway than option 1.

NAMOR - awesome boots bro. Saddle / whiskey shell boot is on my want list.

I think this is what would work. Antic cognac upper and brown grain shaft

Glad you liked option 2. Yeah, if you can dig up that colour way, that'll be great.

Here you go - the Carmina boot is the one on the right (old Unipair makeup) that I think would rock hard as a Valway in calf and suede (boot shown has a shell upper).  The shaft is still lighter than the upper which is a nice change of pace, but the contrast is less drastic.

This is a nice change of pace. I had already ordered something very similar of which is coming next week. Brown shell upper, light brown suede shaft, oxford.

This would be an interesting valway make up though.

^^^ I look forward to seeing that!

i love the lighter suede shaft so it pops a bit more under the pants like when you wear shoes and some brighter socks! The suede texture is great as well.

If you can see your socks while wearing these, I believe you may need a longer inseam.

 

Nevermind, read your post wrong.
