Thought about that as well...doubt Vass would commit to making something it couldn't do perfectly. Does appear to be the newer higher cut V in the back though. I'm sure there will be an explanation on Ascot's site when listed.

Never knew Vass sold seconds.

Think they sell them thru Ascot as 'samples'

I can't think of any other reason for those patches, and there's a lot of shell invested in those boots: wouldn't surprise me if one split a little when pulling the last, and they've come up with an innovative solution to save them.

This is from Carmina. This particular repair job was heavily criticized, with others questioning whether the factory actually repaired it themselves or gave it to a local cobbler instead.
