He works very well on distance. That's how we've done things together and after a first correction, now everything's fine.

Now those are some naughty boots. V&S's website showed larger lasts, but this pair is much sleeker.

Thanks,
A bit background:
V&S are from Baden Baden, a small but very mundane German town at the outskirts of the black forrest. Generally that means they have probably a different average customer than cleverley so the shown lasts differ in shape as well. They have a good understanding of ones taste and adapt last shapes to it. Got some spectators and Derbys from them which are really nicely sleek and elegant which is really difficult on my foot due to its size of 50.
V&S craftsmanship is very good. You can really beat the shoes and it won't kill them. Finishing is faultless on almost all shoes I had and fit was great from the first commissioning.

The boots suede on the shaft is actually Bordeaux. On the pic it looks more like Ferrari red. But it's much less "in your face" than on the photo
Cheers

High points to Vickermann&Stoya's last skills, those red boots look nowhere near size 50. I'm guessing SF will have a thread about them by next year, there are so many makers still left in the dark.

Evidently Cleverley has come up with a unique finish for some of their croc skins. Very beautiful.

Yes, once you got yourself measured, wore the test shoe for a while and are happy with your last, long distance is no problem. I got most of my shoes from them by sending photos and descriptions of what I look for. Works out for well. Once in a while I drop by and say hello and eventua´lly discuss some small changes on my last.
