Thanks everyone, Dpp the color is saddle shell, a bit darker than the original color.

Aging only, or have you encouraged the color change with polish?

Oh-- last/sole info?

I know this is very subjective but If anyone could advise I would be greatfull. I have 2-3 pairs so at a minimum each pair gets used twice a week.. I also take public transport to and from work, although there is considerable walking I wouldn't call it excessive.. If anyone has a similar experience and could share your thoughts?

 

All my shoes are topied. I must say that the rubber put on by Vass is solid, especially since they nail the rubber to the sole at the toe tip.

 

I don't have experience with the leather sole as I always get the rubber added.

Aging only, I never polished these shoes, I think I will use some cream soon to smooth the scuffs a bit. F last, double tapering to single soles.

Do you have single or double sole taped with a rubber topy?

Single sole. I am short and light, so it makes sense to get a single sole.

Really! I have just asked this because many boot makers from UK have summer sales, usually at the end of June.

Hi I visited both the Vass stores yesterday and found everyone very friendly and helpful. I bought a pair of double monks on the k last which is a slightly longer version of the u last. They don't have a lot of models in stock so if you are visiting, it would be better if you order in advance. Cost is 405 euros with shoe trees after 10% discount if paid in cash but no vat refund. Vat refund only available if you pay by credit card and then it's only 13%. Cheers.

How can you get VAT refund? Is it valid in all countries?

If you are not resident in the EU you can get VAT refund in the usual way

They ain't from the UK.

I was under the impression Vass was based out of Hungary, which is EU, but not UK, no?
