Many funny thing happen here.
Vass HAF need build up and it more high than double or single sole,
it funny and not make sense but it look and feel right.
Double sole shoe balance different compare to single sole,
double need to rock and leave more than pencil depth (high) at end because double sole grind down quick if not done this way and feel off.
Why HAF need more high heel compare to double or single sole???
It very very funny and not make sense.
It seem very silly.

Yours look fantastic! No question about it.

I would think that perhaps a larger size alleviates the supposed HAF sole imbalance? I am assuming that the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot sole is lesser relative to the length at larger sizes.

I am more sensitive to this because I am only a 41.5 in Vass shoes. Your shoes look great, but with that angle, the shoes look elongated and we can't really see the sole tapering. Beautiful colour and style nonetheless.

Toe area look high in the air,
sole area that touch ground look under buckle area,
look unbalanced.
All picture of Vass HAF here look unbalanced.

Can you take side picture where we see it flat at eye level?

Lot of pressure in heel area.
Bad.

 

SoS speak truth.

 

However, I have ordered a pair with "haf" sole now, just that I've asked them to add one extra layer to the heel to balance.  I like the visual contrast of the double sole, with the slender single-soled waist, on the U last.  It's a bold pair of shoes and I think this sole style will suit it.  But I have seen the pics, and without that extra heel piece, they don't seem quite right.  With it, I'm sure the heel will look quite high.  But feel great.  At least that's the plan!

 

I like double soles too - on winter/country shoes: a shell budapester is also on the list, and definitely needs a double for proper shit-kicker style to match the goyser stitching and traditional shape.  On dress shoes, I'd generally stick with a single - and Vass's single soles are pretty substantial as it is.

care to mention why? and what is the use?

 

Well, basically the complete opposite reasons to the ones you mentioned. IMO it looks more elegant, more balanced and overall far better than a regular double sole. Functionally, I really don't see the point of having a double sole in the middle of the shoe either, since it doesn't have any real function there. 

 

Just to be clear, I have no experience with Vass HAF-soles. Rather, what I said is based on other makers such as G&G and EG. I agree though that some of the pics shown lately of Vass version of this kind of sole look kind of odd.

can Vass do 1,5 sole? something like St.C sole thickness

This is as close as I have to a shot from the heel looking forward.  Small wonder I didn't tip over and fall on my ass due to the horrible imbalance of the shoe. :D

I own neither, but from pictures I have seen it is not even close. I have two in Bordeaux shell and as it goes with shell they are different shades.
