I have yet to see how longwings work on the F last. Do give it some thought. :)

I would definitely go for something on the 3636 or P2. My favorite being the Budapester P2.

The 3636 can look a little blunt, and shell can exaggerate that. Not to mention the cap-toe reducing the impression of length. Be sure that this is what you like before buying in.

As for the rest, it depends on your taste and what you fit into. If you're a P2/3636 guy, the F might not work. On the other hand, if F fits you, it may be all you ever need.

I have the Budapester in Antique Cordovan (P2), and it's a beaut. Today I'm wearing the P2 austerity brogue in oxblood calf-- beefier than true bespoke oxfords, but comfy and well-proportioned.

sorry guys, im new to vass but what would be the price range on shell vass boots?
post #8544 of 12736

^ Rezso told me a shell high boot would be 950 euros.

Das Ferk?

I don't understand why vass boots are so expensive relative to their shoes. Even a calfskin boot will set you back $850
post #8546 of 12736

FWIW, my scotch-grain Theresianer High Boots set me back ~$650, including wire transfer fee and shipping.

 

Shoemakers, like Alden and Allen-Edmonds, normally use two shells for a pair of shoes and boots (one for each). Since Vass' high boots are quite tall Reszo told me they need to use multiple shells for each shoe. I guess this helps explain why the price is considerably higher than their other offerings.

I noticed this when comparing Vass boots to Alden, the Vass boots looked significantly taller. Would be nice if Vass offered a price difference for their Ankle, mid range, and high boots. Would love some shell boots, but don't need them going up so high.
