the vass budapester full brogue, you like it or not like it - Page 3

To me it is quite clear that whoever writes under the name of Son of Saphir is actually quite capable of speaking and writing proper English. It's all just a very effective stylistic rouse. And one I generally find amusing.

The wing tip design on a Hungarian Budapester style raised toe box last is a very comfortable shoe.

it does not look modern like a Vass F, or G&G TG73, with a sleek rounded toe or a squared and chiseled toe

But when you see it in person...its intriguing

When you put it one...its roomy, comfortably wide, and just feels right (especially with my high instep)

I'm glad I took the gamble and made a monk strap version in both the wing tips (budapester) and the alt wein (semi-brogue) design on the budapester last.

It opened my horizons to quality Hungarian made craftsmanship and to the beauty of Freudenberg box calf leather

+ A gazillion.

The Budapest last really doesn't look that clunky in real life. Sure it's bigger and more structured than EG 888 or Vass F last, but that's part of the appeal. It's different and should be. Until I saw it in person I never would have thought to use the word elegance and Budapest Last in the same sentence, but it does have some of that in its own charming way. I highly recommend it. For different photos in a different model than the one above check out the boots in my For Sale thread linked below. I can't wait to get them again in the proper size for me.

Well.  How do they function as walking shoes?  Not talking about hiking, but just day-to-day walking shoes.  And how good is the arch support, etc with these?  Just wondering. :)

No it's not nice at 60 years old! The Vass U-last is nice at 60 years old.

^ Now that is one stunning monkstrap inlove.gif

Back to the originating post,..

I like it fine but that monkstrap beats it.
What I really like more than that Vass was the bespoke Budapester that our own MarcelHun (Koronya) shared with us awhile back

^These are hands down, the most beautiful pair of Wingtip Budapsters I have seen yet and would take these over the Vass any day.

sorry for derailing your informative and friendly post. the spelling is wrong. this can be misleading for potential buyers, when they try to order.

it's Alt Wien which derives from Vienna and not from wine.

both designs - budapester and alt wien, not to forget the Wiener(quarter brogue), are coming out of the friendly rivalery between these two capitals of shoemaking.

in the meantime you can order these designs on various lasts, while vass makes the authentic versions on their budapester and 3636 last.

glad that we share the same love for this craftmanship.

while these are nice, the longwing version is a modern variation of the authentic budapester design. actually on this particular picture the toe box seems to be not as distinct(shark mouth) as normal, anyway.

I like them - a distinctly Central European style. I would not criticize Budapesters for lacking sleekness no more than I would a pair of Alden Longwings.
