Jeans are probably a little too casual and beat up for these shoes but its almost summer and I almost don't give two Effs.

Love these chukkas. F last, gold museum calf.

Beautiful chukkas, perfect with jeans IMO.

@peppercorn78 I generally dislike jeans with any sort of dress shoe/boot, but those are so damn pretty you should just wear whatever feels right! Really gorgeous monks.

 

Edit: did you request a natural sole? The light brown (at least in appearance) works extremely well with the leather.

Thanks, yeah I probably won't wear them with jeans again, I think I've decided that a flat welt needs tailored pants or at least chinos. But I really wanted to wear these today and didn't have the time to change pants smile.gif

Yes, I had a photo of a Vass Oxford with this edge color and sent it to Mr. Kuti asking him if it could be replicated. I really dig it!

The shop really did a fantastic job with these boots. I couldn't be happier. Well, I might be happier once the straps break in a bit more, as it's a little tough tightening them. But that will come...

Wow, I don't like double monks or chukkas, but those are unbelievably good looking.

Two negatives making a positive? ("First I thought those monks were ugly, but now I see that they're way better than the chukkas you're also wearing.")

it looks like there's some space between your feet and the toe vamp, resulting in the prominent creases. I have a similar problem with my Vass double monks. not sure why Vass would repeatedly manufacture shoes that way - even their shoe trees don't fully fill the vamp area.

Well, you are correct. But I always assumed that was because I have a low "volume" forefoot and low instep. I do have a similar problem with most shoe brands, including Enzo Bonafe and Allen Edmonds.

It may look worse than it is in this picture, however, since Imflexing my toes up.

Actually, I don't have this problem with the U last. It hugs the top of my foot pretty well. That toebox, however...

I think I have a low volume forefoot and low instep like you. I also notice that U last "hugs" the top of my feet better than F or P2 even though I wear 42 in F+P2 and 42.5 in U.

Do your shoe lace fully closed because of this? Aka touching because of your low instep.

Cross post from Austro-Hungarian School of shoemaking thread on my visit to Budapest, Vienna and Prague. 

 

http://www.styleforum.net/t/57955/austro-hungarian-school-of-shoemaking/1320#post_8466655

 

This is a vass thread so I reckon I will post some pictures of my visit...

 

This is my first stop for my central/eastern europe trip so naturally Vass Cipo is the first destination to visit. On my way over to visit, I come across Atilla, Buday and Rozsnyai but Vass will be the first I will visit! 

 

So when I am there, Ms Eva Vass and Mr Kuit Reszo are inside and greeted me with welcoming smile. It feel great to have done couple orders via email and finally been able to meet them. Chat abit about shoe, the city and the food in Budapest. Most Important and priority is to see try all the various last that I have not access to prior!

 

 

The front of their store. They have 2 stores in the same street, Haris Koz. If you come in from the main street Vaci utca you will see the first and original store. Walk further down and you will see their present main store.

Vass has recently introduced military polish as part of their offering. Finishing looks much better compared to past orders.

Since I have been getting couple of MTO from them previously and since I am here, might as well tried their MTM service where my feet is being measured and size adjusted accordingly from existing last. The process is simple. Just stand or sit up and Mr Kuti Reszo will draw the outline of your feet and measure your instep height. Next just try the size of the shoe closest to my feet measurement  with the last and feedback to Reszo on how i feel about wearing it. For eg, is it tight or loose at the heel, instep or toe cap area? From there he will make the necessary remark on the paper note.

 

In this case, I try S last for my next project and realized its not as elongated as what initially thought. More pics to post when they are ready. Hopefully the make up and fit turn out well...
