From what I can see from the pictures, the VASS uses a full insock lining, while the AS uses a half lining. It would be very easy to cover everything up with a full insock lining, rather than using a half and show off the real leather insole.
FWIW, IMHO the AS seems to have a better method of construction or pattern making, as the seams joining the quarter linings to the vamp linings on the VASS is visible while the AS has no visible joints, at least in the context of the picture.
Just in case, I am not insinuating that VASS is not using leather insoles, just that its easier to cover up any imperfections with a full sock lining, rather to trying to keep the insoles beautiful enough to show off.
