Now...to Sno-Seal or not...hmmm.

Very nice Trini. I've been eying a pair myself for winter duty. Is the interior as yellow as it appears in the photo? Or is it the camera flash playing tricks? Also, did you go down half a size or a full size for this last (325)?

Thanks. Nah - it's just the flash. I went with my regular UK size.

Plus, if your kid's school was anything like mine I'm not sure his classmates will appreciate this aesthetic... I would say save the nice shoes until he gets a job in a bank.

Just sayin'.

I completely understand and I had to laugh because everything you posted was absolutely true of the high school I attended.

Fortunately or unfortunately depending on your view, my son's school is not the same and a strict uniform / dress code is applied such that he will not stand out like a sore thumb (even in 'proper' shoes). Rest assured that if he did feel uncomfortable about wearing the shoes, I certainly wouldn't insist.

I'm afraid I don't know. The style / model isn't evident on the box or written in the shoe.

Precisely. Even overcoats have to be a certain colour and no logos etc.

Fritzl, those shoes are beautiful. May I ask, are you familiar with Schubert's lieder?

Sounds like a great re-education camp, uh, I mean school.

Compliments to Gabor Halmos for making me the following. They are not Vass shoes: They are the same overall design, just on different lasts and different leathers. I plan on ordering more since the fit is good on both lasts. I'm warning all of you, I plan on making a lazyman side gussetted shoe...but on a Budapester style last 1. Budapester (wing tip) monk, on a Budapester raised toe box rounded last....on old stock Black Box calf from the now defunct Freudenberg leather company. Single sole. Fit is roomy & to my liking. I've worn these shoes a few time...thus they are not new & out of the box. The leather quality is excellent and the Gabor & his clicker did a fine job of incorporating my design request. 2. Budapester (wing tip) monk, on a squared & chiseled last. It is not a U last. I found this last to be bit roomier in the toe box and tad bit wider than my Vass U last...personally I prefer this last over the U last. Unknown suede color. A side by side pic to compare the 2 lasts:

It's called MTO and not MTM...................MTM comes in your size all around.......there is no choice of width or size......is it just made for your feet..........
