Total after VAT deduction however: €410

 

 

 

Let me guess... You used CF?

Last time I checked there were different/higher prices on the "italian" lasts. Think 420 is for the non-italian

Good guess. I ended up saving just a few dollars on this small exchange, but I wanted to experiment.

I have my receipts in front of me to prove this.

Vass has a selection of Ready to Wear shoes which they produce on a monthly basis
and sell for €420 ...they are their bread and butter shoes, mainly made on the Peter;
R; F & U last and the style and colour on these are limited to black, brown and cognac
calf and some other colours. If these RTW shoes are out of stock, you can still order
them at the RTW price of €420.....

For the majority of the popular F; K & U last, with varying colours and design prices are
indeed €520 for MTO....

Cordovan High boots are from €950....

I don't think that is correct. The standard price is 420 euro for all shoes based on standard models (basically the ones pictures on their site). You can choose last, leather, single- double or haf-sole, buckle color and so on without any extra cost, even if they are created as an MTO. 520 euro is for when you change the pattern or make a new type of model that they don't have I'm their standard range.

Italian lasts in standard models are still 420 euro, but they did raise the prices for the other lasts from 390 to 420 as well last year.

They are on F-last, so an "Italian" last.

Ok, didnt know it had changed. This was last summer when I was in Budapest so my info is a bit old :).

 

Does anyone have an up to date price list? Not sure the one google finds me is the latest (shows different prices standard/italian models)

Well, I asked for Old English Medallion on F last, with trees and rubber toe tip, and was quoted 520 EUR + shipping another 20 EUR. Still strange to me, unless the medallion adds a lot?

I think another source of confusion WRT pricing is that those SF members in the EU paid VAT while those elsewhere were exempted but incurred extra shipping. Also different specifications would incur their respective add on cost. Some types of leather would cost more than others, as would the use of combination leathers

 

The prices you find googling are at best guidelines. Best to just email them with exactly what you want and state where you intend to have them ship to in order to get the most accurate prices.

It's difficult to tell from that angle, but it is U

 

 

Wow they really did an unbelievably nice job, those soles look great.    Seeing these definitely makes me want to go with Dainite on my next pair.

Is it?

 

I think the stitching is uneven, it is not spaced from the edge in a uniform way and only sewn in the toe part (is the rest glued?). You can also clearly see that the thread is not protected in a groove on the right shoe.

 

Though I like the shoe!

What's the difference between shoes with high instep and shoes with great volume under the vamp? Or are these the same?

Not necessarily the same! - You don't want to have too much empty space/volume where it's not needed.



Look at Bestetti's shoes: They have an unbelievably high instep, but the last (and the lasting) is always very tight over the vamp.

That's what I thought too, that there would be a difference.

How does the U last compare with the F in terms of volume under the vamp? I only have the F, which I find has way too much vamp volume despite the perfect instep fit.

Because the F last is a touch wider than the U last, hence, the extra volume...

 

 

What's your definition of "too much" ?  Any pictures?

The way you're describing too much, makes out your shoes are 2 sizes too big for you...
