Saint Crispin vs Vass - Page 4
It's a pretty popular style -- I think there are probably a number of manufacturers which make something similar. I've seen another forum member's Enzo Bonafe shoes which are quite close.
Just been informed that a shoe from Saint Crispin would set me back about Â£860,
Conversely a shoe from Vass would set me back about Â£420,
I was surprised about how much the Saint Crispin shoes are; is there a noticeable difference in quality / construction? I'm guessing from all the praise that the difference is nominal (if at all existent)? I think I'll probably stick with Vass - what are others' opinions?
Reviving an old thread:
I've been quoted the following prices:
they charge those prices because they can.
fit is all relative and very personal.
those SC trees are almost as an artwork as the Hervé Brunelle trees and a leagues above Vass trees in terms of form. english rtw/bespoke trees are several leagues below...
I am the same Saint Crispins shoes fits me the best and their customise program is very flexible. Other high end shoes like John Lobb prestige, EG top draw and G&G Deco are around the same price if not more, for me I'll take the Saint Crispins anytime over the others.
What is most important? Hand-welted is nice but really have no function in reality. A recraft of JL replaces eveything incl inner sole and welt etc.
