I would think as long as you polish it with a shade of cream/wax that is lighter then the leather you are polishing you should not cover it. It may be worth asking the question in the EG or shoe care thread though!

Yes, I've talked to Reszo about it and when they have received all the leathers I hopefully will be updating the blog with sample pictures of all the new Ilcea offerings. And thanks for the kind words about the blog!

What is the benefit of the new calf vs the old calf? Is it higher quality or just more/unique color options?

That is good news, I think I am the one who should thank you, I had never heard of Vass before your blog and without it I would have had a very hard time figuring out sizing, lasts, how to order etc. Three pairs in to my Vass career now I can only thank you while my wallet secretly hates you ;)

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifI like. Very original.

 

BTW: When you was in the shop did you notice any heavy traffic in Number 5 Haris Koz?

 

 

My local sources tell me there an interesting establishment based in Haris Koz 5.

I have not been nor have I noticed this until one of my associate thought I was going

to this particular establishment when I asked for a taxi to Haris Koz...

 

Next time I am sure to give this place a visit :-) I hear there are a few interesting "models"

to pick from...

 

Remember Vass shoes occupies number 2 & 6....

  1. What style hides or 'controls' the wrinkles for shell? I know for a fact a wholecut will be suicide, but how about straight toecaps vs wingtips? Oxfords vs bluchers?
  2. Can someone show how shell wrinkles look on the U last? Gracias! biggrin.gif

Really anything with a design on the toe (i.e. captoes and wingtips) will "control" the rippling on shell. I actually haven't tried a straight toecap (i.e. no brogueing), but I would imagine it would be better than say, a plain toe.

Aren't the waves of well worn shell part of its appeal?

I have a shell wingtip, definitely less "wrinkle" than my captoe shell

Yes and no. Some people prefer the hardiness of the material over calf, others the lusture shell seems to have, some the way it creases/waves, some like all of these, or a combination of.

 

In theory, smaller patches of shell will hide the rippling better. Think captoe or wingtip derby with a heel counter. An oxford would do well too.

Thanks, that's what I theorized initially. Do you have any wrinkles towards the edge of the wingtip or 'ends of the wing'? Pardon my poor shoe vocab.

I wonder if a shell oxford 'controls' the wrinkling more? It leaves less room for wrinkling, compared to a derby which has a vamp that 'extends' all the way to the tongue.

 

Btw, how will a heel counter help??

An oxford would probably have less wrinkling overall, because you don't see the tongue, I can't imagine a 5 or 6 eyelet derby would have much more though. I think the common ideology for decreasing the wrinkles in shell is to size down as much as you can, having little room in the toebox, but this relies on the last suiting you well and you being okay with a snugger fit. 

 

In fairness I think a heel counter may not help that much, but it would add another layer/line of stitching to the rear of the shoe, so it will flex less, if it ever does.

Does anyone have the size of Vass down to a science yet? I thought I was done until rezo told me I should go up half a size for the U-last. I'm usually a C&J 9 and according to the reference sheet he sent me I should be a 9,5 in Vass.

 

So the question is: Should I go up to a 10 or just get the 9,5 in G-width?
