The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 590post #8836 of 2052711/3/13 at 7:01ampost #8837 of 2052711/4/13 at 2:06am
Hello everybody. I'm new to Styleforum and I think it's a good place to make one of my 1st posts. After owning French (Weston) and Italian (Moreschi, Di Meglia, Santoni...) shoes, I took the chance to buy these Vass Oxfords in Bordeaux calf size 41F from a fellow SF member. Nice construction and fit like a glove! Would somebody tell me what model it is?post #8838 of 2052711/4/13 at 3:52ampost #8839 of 2052711/4/13 at 5:06amQuote:Originally Posted by mimo
Looks like the "Italian Oxford" - model number 63 on the website, on the F last. Here. Which is technically an adelaide rather than a true oxford, But now I'm just being pedantic.
Also, gorgeous. Well done.
Thanks very much for the info!
Being an italian style shoe lover, it made sense I picked these as they are in similar shape to a few of my wholecuts. much thicker single sole though on the Vass..post #8840 of 2052711/4/13 at 5:09amQuote:
The sole look thicker than the image on the website too. Is a HAF sole maybe? (double to single)post #8841 of 2052711/4/13 at 6:35ampost #8842 of 2052711/4/13 at 7:32amQuote:
Could be wrong, but isn't that single tapered to double sole?
Nice buy btw!post #8843 of 2052711/4/13 at 7:51amQuote:Originally Posted by stmaier
here are some Alt Wien boots that arrived the other day...P2 last, burgundy cordovan...larger "classic" medallion...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
These are really beautiful. I only have burgundy shell as an accent on a pair of Vass, but it seems like the handle the color very nicely.
Are these on a single sole?post #8844 of 2052711/4/13 at 7:53amQuote:
yup...single sole...I think burgundy shell is the perfect color for the Alt Wien design...post #8845 of 2052711/4/13 at 8:15ampost #8846 of 2052711/4/13 at 10:50ampost #8847 of 2052711/4/13 at 3:02pmQuote:
Thanks! Very happy with the buy.
The sole looks very thick so I have to check if it's in fact a double sole. Not wearing them today but these beautiful wholecuts from Di Mella Napoli, bought from Vittorio at Morigi. Have the black and cognac and of course matching belts :-)post #8848 of 2052711/4/13 at 3:39pmQuote:Originally Posted by OzzyJones

It's definitely a double sole. I can't see the waist, so I don't know if it transitions to a single there. But underfoot, it's a double.post #8849 of 2052711/4/13 at 3:48pmpost #8850 of 2052711/4/13 at 3:50pm
