Au contraire, the trees I have are to small. By heel slippage i'm referring to the space (air) occuring between the heel cap and the tree when inserting the tree.

These are from Buday and purchased special order from @edmorel at Panta Clothes. Really excellent transaction btw.

I need tongue pads for mine before I can wear them (same shoe in tobacco shell) but I agree with all of this!

Just tried them on quickly, but fortunately fit feels really good for me. Tobacco shell version must be something to look at. Post a photo over in the Buday thread for me to look at ... smile.gif

Mahogany works well for me :-)

Oh man I will have to venture to Buday and Dink at some point. But Vass has been very good to me indeed.

That's a very toothy grin on that shoe.

I just received a pair of Old English after exchanging for a different size from Ascot. These are replacements for my now-sold AE PA. I took the advice of rikod, Louis XIV and Torsion on sizing the second time around and they are a better fit. I think my next shoe will also be a Vass.

Glad it worked out second time round @ktown but as I have warned you now you know your size Vass are super addictive!They should carry a wealth warning lol The OE is a great classic-I have the exact one on the way :-)

It's truly a terrible thing.  Once you know what hand-welted shoes in lovely leather on good soles and quality leather heels, with a solid cork footbed and on a beautifully-conceived last feels like.....you're pretty much fucked.  The first Vass arrived, and suddenly I was looking at another twenty-odd pairs of shoes I loved and thinking....meh...might as well start replacing these...
