^^^ That's strictly down to personal preference my man - get them done the way you want (..... and then hope Vass does what you want. :smarmy: )  I like a mirror shine on the toe and heel on just about any smooth calf or shell - and it makes burnishing pop.  But that's just my preference.

Can they mirror shine just the toe/heel?

 

My guess is that a shine/burnishing is also higher maintenance?

1) Well I don't see why not - I get that done all the time from @jokb

 

2) Not really.  I mean if these are going to be boots you go hiking and camping in, then a mirror shine is not the best choice.  But assuming regular casual wear, it shouldn't be an issue.

Would you mind posting some pics?

Not sure I have a pic of that particular polish on a pair of Vass, but if you check the G&G thread a couple days back I posted pics of my Burnhams that he shined for me.

Just a poll from a community member, nothing official or indicative of an upcoming drop.

^^^ And those are some pretty ho-hum selections.  Best of?  Not even close.

Would you mind taking a pic when you get a chance?

I should have been more clear - I don't think I have a pair of Vass with burnished toe and mirror polishing on the toe. Burnishing is a fairly recent OE option from Vass and I haven't had it on any pairs.

I have polished toes on unburnished Vass shoes, and the combo of burnishing and mirror polish on shoes from other brands. But not both on Vass.

Incoming!

^^^ Sweet.
post #19843 of 20218
Agreed. Those are perfect and classic Vass. Enjoy, Mr. Six!
post #19844 of 20218
Thanks! I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. In particular, I asked for the (seemingly less common) rounded u-cap but wasn't sure what the charming result would be. They're about how I imagined them. I'm most interested to see how the gold museum looks in person, since photos vary quite a bit.

So Ascot posted up some odd stock pairs on their Facebook page, and I couldn't resist these.  Inbound shortly.

 

Oxblood uppers and black grain shaft.

 

F last.

 

270 Norvegese

 

Heavy lugged Vibram outsole.

 

I have two words for you, winter:  Bring it. :D
