Well I must say they more than compete, I like them a lot! Can you give a few more details please? The sole and the actual name of the colour? Perhaps a couple more pics? Also are they comfortable and light? I'm thinking to get an unlined suede Alden PTfor the summer but I could be swayed the Vass way (again!).

Ps how does the colour compare to Aleen or Carmina snuff please?

Not much more to give...it is red brown on a single leather sole. Very comfortable and casual on New Peter, but it won't be as light as an unlined Alden on a flex sole. Mid brown will be closest to some shades of snuff.

Thanks Tukker. Nothing elaborate...soak with a suede cleaner when dirty, use a rubber suede brush when dry and touch up edges. I've been using Burgol neutral suede care lately and it has worked well. Nano protector once a year keeps any major stains off, and makes cleaning easier.

Tack Rolle! Also the comfort was amazing from the first day of wear. Tried som Ugolini-lasts as well, but they were a tad narrow before the toe area.

Thanks for the tip; I need to Nano these babies (maiden wear today; seems Spring is finally here!)

Yes I do remember seeing some pics (can you re-post perhaps?)

Just saw these on IG this morning and as a musician (hobbyist) I know the expression "to have GAS" as in "Gear Acquisition Syndrome" however can we also use the expression to have "S A S" as in "Shoe Acquisition Syndrome" ?? 
😂😇👍🏻



I'm very familiar with that being a musician as well. that is a great term for us shoe guys!

A couple of new pics on these.

These will quickly become my favorite pair of Vass shoes. The U last remains my favorite last of any high end shoe I've seen and the quality is just outstanding. The color on these is fantastic I love how subtle the antiquing is. I will definitely be ordering the other museum colors.

Fit is great out of the box. I went 0,5 size smaller than previous orders and that was the right decision, I hope they don't stretch out too much.

Dealing with Rezso was a pleasure as always. Service from Vass is really outstanding.

The value Vass represents in my opinion is still top of the line. At the price point they are well ahead of the competition both aesthetically and quality wise. The only shoes that I have seen that rival Vass to me are Yohei Fukuda, but then we are talking a completely different price range.

Some deets

- U last
- 42,5
- Museum brown
- Old English II
- 3/4 goyser welt
- High shine polish

They look great! I agree, dealing with Rezso is real smooth.

 

Out of curiosity, what is your usual size? I have a pair on the F last in a 42F, and I recently ordered a pair of boots on the U last in a 42G. The 42F fits snug but not uncomfortably so. I hope going up a width was the right decision.

With all due respect, while I agree that Vass does deliver a good quality product for its price, comparing Fukuda san's work to Vass is ridiculous.
They are as far apart in quality as the sun and the moon. Very very very far apart. The gulf is that wide. I could probably say the same for Vass against many other Japanese bespoke makers as well.

Agreed.. the details are not even close not to mention QC .

post #19139 of 20267
Hmm I'm not sure where in my post I am equating Vass with Fukuda. These are very different products merely by the fact that Yohei Fukuda offers a fully bespoke process. I am merely stating that for me Yohei Fukuda is currently the only maker that I would consider as an alternative to Vass, well knowing that the price is close to 10 fold, ergo the value must be equally greater.

Although I'm not sure that quality as defined only as strength of construction and quality of the upper hide is quite that night and day.
post #19140 of 20267
I could see how one might take Vass rivaling Fukuda as Vass being of similar quality to Fukuda.

The follow up definitely clarifies, though it will likely read as hedging a bit, given the last bit.
