Any good proper Vass shoe pair should have the shoe trees and the JR mark on the sole. You need to talk to your seller.

The pic is lousy, as is the angle! Take the pic from the top first, from your own vantage point, and then from the front.

These look like a good pair. If the last is tight, get 0.5 size up. That's what I had to do. I got a 43 and hoped they would break in, but they don't. It's a tapering fit, and as with many such shoes like Santoni or Magnanni, which properly taper at the front unlike the British shoes that are too rounded at the front, you'll need to go 0.5 size higher than your usual, to give the toebox some space.

Enjoy! The double sole looks gorgeous and solid.

Sorry im no photographer.

I was wondering, mines do not have the Johannes Redenbach "JR" nor the German Traditional Tanners Association mark on the sole. Just wondering whats up with that? Anyways, nice polished sole, cant wait to go scruff them up tomorrow. Maybe I will do aerobics class in them to give them a Power-Break-in.

I have received shoes directly from Vass where the JR marking on the outsole had rubbed off, was gone, or was never there. The soles were definitely JR however.

In the past the "JR" marking was not as prominent as they are now on Vass shoes. Also, as you know, other makers are able to source JR outsoles and sell them without any JR marking whatsoever. Maybe your shoes are older (Ascot shoes often has shoes from past seasons) or they just used JR outsoles that came without markings.

Either way, nice shoes.

They should come with trees. Probably you just paid double the price and that too without trees...do your homework first.

What? Vass shoes without proper trees? Most likely Ascot has put them on sale at eBay, around 50£ for a pair. Chumps are willing to pay.
post #3365 of 13022

Haha right funny 50£, you have a great sense of humor ever thought of doing stand up?

 

Anyways Karl from Ascot said he shipped me the wrong trees, im getting the Vass ones free of charge, just they will take about 3 weeks to get here. And because I did actually do my homework I will inform you all the reason why some shoes have JR marked soles and some do not: RTW dont, MTO do. There you go, your welcome. Interesting how fast people online jump to conclusions online. Obviously money cannot buy class.

This is incorrect. I buy my MTO VASS directly from the old store, off Vaci and they do not come with any writing on the soles.

Look everyone, quit trying to be a smart ass. Are you all here trying to talk about shoes or just trying to dog me? I did my own research into why the soles have no mark and thats what I came up with, since no one can really point out real evidence on why then lets all forget it. And I might be new to Vass but saying that my shoes are worth less than 100 USD is absurd, boarder line insulting. If anyone of you guys want to sell me NIB Vass shoes for <100 USD send me a paypal invoice and I will buy the lot. Pre owned wrinkled as hell with the soles all scuffed up Vass still go for $200+ online.

 

So stop with the childish antics and get back on topic. I take time out of my own day to post pictures and share with you my new purchases, if you dont have pictures of your own or anything constructive to say then take your BS to the Youtube comment section.

 

Thank you and good day sirs!

Hey - All my VAss shoes are MTO and two have the JR and two dont, so before you call out others do some reading and fact finding.

Calm down there buddy - if you chose to read peoples comments, people who have likely have 10 to 20x more experience with Vass than you do, then you would see that the "$50" remark was in reference to Ascot selling Vass shoe trees seperately on-line. No one is questioning the authenticity of your shoes which I'm sure you paid a pretty penny for.

You've been here a month - thanks for sharing the pics but please take the time to listen to those who came before you rather than get all defensive.

Agree 100%, and in the meantime, lets enjoy the fine loafers posted above, if anybody think about getting a pair of loafers, that's the way to do it IMO. Shell F last?
