The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 1289

post #19321 of 20233

Hi all, newbie here. I'm consider Vass as my wedding shoe.

Being a narrow feet 9C, and I would prefer wholecuts for my low instep feet & love the style.

Tried C&J Weymouth and 7E seems sitting on feet well.

 

I'm lost in color choice as I seldom dress up, and assume the wedding suit will be black or dark velvet tux.

A note would be I'm very slim - 27" waist and I couldn't manage to boast my size for years. Metabolism issue.

 

I wish to keep the shoe for daily use - while I will be in jeans and tee/polo as being in  IT & video production, no dress up is required.

 

Would you all kindly share your thoughts with me? Cheers!

Overwhelming response will be black.  You could also do a very deep brown if going with a midnight blue tux.  

 

Look at a U last wholecut, with or without medallion, and see if you can try them on.  

 

 

Or (while not Vass) jump over to Skoak's website and order that 946E Black Wholecut Enzo Bonafe in an 8UK.  You can also return it if the fit is wrong, which is a plus.

Congrats!

I would suggest a pair of oxblood plain captoes with a 3pcs dark navy suit.

I never wear black but had a pair of black wholecuts for my wedding. Mind you it's not for another year but with some manufacturers it takes a while and I didn't want to risk it. I'll be most likely wearing a navy tux

Thanks for tips. I forgot to add most of the time I'm in jeans/chino or shorts in Hong Kong summer heat.

Black's always great while could I spice it up a bit? Say plum museum calf.

 

Seems there's a retailer in Hong Kong, will try it out tomorrow, good day!

Ah yes, navy tux would be a great pick.

Not Vass but here's my GG wholecuts. I find that the P2 fits me well from Vass but that last wouldn't make a handsome or classy wholecut so I went with GG instead

Looks far better than C&J Weymouth, marked :)

Congrats on getting hitched! Hope you have enough time to break them in before the big day. Leather soles take some work to get flexible.

I'm also wearing black wholecuts with a midnight tux at my wedding.

OP, I love Vass (going on my 6th pair) but if you don't think you'll be wearing them much, maybe the Meermin wholecuts? https://meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4630

They're nowhere near the quality of Vass but it sounds like you don't have much need for formal shoes and they will look good with your tux.

Yeah, it is a bit of a downgrade. Personally I love Vass but I'd rather have them for something I'd wear frequently. Didn't seem like the OP would wear formal shoes much. I could also see wanting something really nice for your wedding

Considering maybe 1 or 2 occasions for formal wear, it's a practical & budget pick and great to stop me craving into more high-end shoes (so far my top tier one is C&J)...

Or, you could get the budget wholecuts AND get a nice pair of Vass derbies or boots to wear to work
