The odds of two types of footwear looking similar are pretty high

I like the shoes a great deal but something about the sole does bother me from this angle. I am sure if I saw them in real life I would not even notice the sole but the fantastic color and brouging.

Because if he is a troll, then I can give him the benefit of the doubt that he has some intelligence and he is just trying to stir some shit up. Otherwise, he's just a dipshit.

And fine, if you squint your eyes and are traveling past gnatty at 60 miles per hour, the shoes might be indistinguishable from a cowboy boot - you know, because you can't see the laces. However, his point that the robustness of the sole making the Vass look like a boot is absurd. Also, if you ignore the laces, why not ignore the sole itself and then compare the shoes he's wearing to "fancy moccasins".

I agree. The sole has nothing to do with it. Most cowboy boots I have seen have thin soles. Some boots do have laces as well. I was just trying to point out that these do have some boot like characteristics.

Most hereabouts recognize my love of vintage shoes.

These all came from one Los Angeles estate about 12 years ago. Their owner was a clotheshorse who didn't wear much of what he bought.

Most of the 1930s-'40s shoes below were from the (departed) "Oviatt's" store in LA. Photos courtesy of Marc Chevalier of the Fedora Lounge

Thank you fritzl. No doubt that it won't be everyone's taste (a bit of a frankenshoe mix of Norweger ruggedness and U-last sleekness), but I actually really like the result.
