"Dear Mr. Louis XIV!

Thank you for your email!

Also for the information. These details are enough for us. We know the size, model, color, last. I’ll need only your shipping and/or billing address.

Once we have received your transfer I’ll let you know. We’ll start the production this week already.

If I can help or you have questions left, then please contact me!

Sincerely yours,

Rezső Kuti

Sales Manager"

I take a US 11.5. Part of the reason is I have gout which, though under control, makes my feet unhappy if they are too tightly confined. I should technically wear an 11 (and do in a few "softer shoes like suede Aldens) but prefer the slight extra roominess of the 11.5. I would say the Vass 45 is pretty close to US 11.5.

Help me design my next Vass pair, if you please...

 

It's a tossup between a  Bordeaux Shell or Red Cognac Suede....but the design will be a pair of Chukka boots.

 

On a Vibram sole.

 

I am loath to try the U Last as I don't think I'll like it, so F Last may be the go as it's suitably sleek.

 

Also want to explore if a medallion will look good on both the shell and the suede. (a la St. Crispin)

 

Any thoughts on which material is more preferable? (These might be worn in wet weather a fair bit.)

 

And also what the welt stitching should be....I keep hearing about the Goyser Welt...is this the right shoe to have it?

 

Cheers

They do it sometimes, just convert the size to EU. I have a pair of UK 9's, that's a 43 EU.

Do we still have to pay VAT even though the shoes are exported?

No

I've been pondering how this beefier, thicker calf Vass uses will age. Could someone please add a pic of, say, one five-year-old pair?

Does Vass make veldtschoen construction?
post #4933 of 12558
veldtschoen is a machine made construction. vass only does handwelted.

I've never seen a norwegian construction (i.e. upper turned outwards) but they do make goiser construction (welt on the outside).
post #4934 of 12558
Thanks for the reply. I found this great thread on AA where Bengal states that norweigian and goyser welt is actually the same if I understand it correctly:

Edit: Anyways, the goyser Construction would be the way to go if one wanted a boot as waterproof as possible from Vass, right?

Well, after weeks of waiting and listening to reports on how Vass can be a minefield in terms of sizing unless you go through a proxy (not only was this said to me by a proxy but also by a proxy of the proxy LOL), the results are in and they speak for themselves.

 

Vass 3-Eyelet Derby in Oil Green Boxcalf on the F-Last, Single Sole with natural edge trim, Size 42, a PERFECT fit for my US9D feet:

I love the softness, substance and suppleness of this leather...it has to be touched to be believed. Oil green is (to me) a fantastic hue.

Next up:

 

Loafer in Whiskey Shell Cordovan on the New Peter Last, single sole, size 42...once again, the fit is perfectly fine. I will say, though, that New Peter Last is a tad roomier than FLast although it is not glaringly felt. I may or may not wear these with a thin insole.

My overall impression of dealing with Vass, payment transfers, Reszo Kuti and the overall ease of transacting...easily a 9 on 10. I will say though that I did not micromanage the design of the shoe...just picked the style, the colour and last and left the artistic details to them...I do not trust myself too much to meddle in shoe construction.

 

Am I keeping these shoes? Hell, yeah.

 

Cheers
