I'm not in the US. I'm just using US currency because my country's currency isn't shown.

If your shoe wardrobe is not extensive, getting 2 shoes would probably be the smart choice. The reality is that if you take good care of your shoes, they will last you fir many years, be they Allen Edmonds or Buday.

Since you asked comparables, I would say Vass is the easiest comparison to make to Buday since they are both made in the same city using the same methods. The difference between Buday and Carmina are things that you may or may not care about (hand welting versus Goodyear, German boxcalf versus what Carmina uses, outsole quality, interior lining/support).
Yeah my friend told me the same thing. Right now my shoes collection are white sneaker, loafer, black captoe Oxford (ASOS for prom), and suede double monk. The loafer and double isn't really quality shoes, but they were in sale and got it for quite cheap in this year. The problem what will be second pair of shoes be, since most of my shoes are bought in this year? I can get a Carlos santos black Chelsea boots for $185, but really unfamiliar last.

X-post from the Boooooots thread.

When I think of Buday boots, I think of chunky, sturdy, high quality, indestructible and still beautifully finished smart-casual footwear.



 



"Sleek" and "elegant" and "dress boots" generally don't break into the top 10 of the first thoughts that come to mind.



 



At least they didn't.



 



Saw these posted on the Best of Buy and Sell (huge props to @razl ) offered buy super-good-guy @edmorel  and pulled the trigger.

These are brown museum calf - though my quick pics as I got home in failing light don't capture the mottling effect very well.

Overall just a tremendously well-executed pair of Oxford boots.

But they ARE Budays, so you know there is some rock solid construction baked in. Check out the gotta-be-more-than-double leather soles and weapons-grade toe taps. Ready to stomp at a moment's notice.

Thanks to Ed for the excellent fit advice - they feel great. At least until I try to see which breaks in first - those soles or my feet!

I have 3 pair of Buday (all from @edmorel) Love them all. I wanted to get more but these days my usual footwear are Ugg slippers!

An example pair from the Hungarian handicraftsmen of Buday: made to order brown suede derby on the round Fraknó-last, leather sole, sunken steel toe taps and blue leather lining.

Some quick observations:

- surprisingly close fit all around
- strong heel support
- hefty toe taps
- staight stitching
- piping around the ankle seems to be the House Style
- even stitches on the welt
- shoe trees fill the pair tightly and have a strong spring

Great pics! How do they compare with Rozsnyai shoes?

I will be in Budapest in a few weeks... do you guys want pictures of the store inventory again?
post #459 of 469
Justsayno: obviously the lasts differ, but both favour oak-bark leather soles from Rendenbach and Italian calfskins. Both are artisanal makers with similar pricing, both and both have exotic hides along with a made-to-measure service. I'd say it's best to visit Hungary and compare in store, though looking at photos of completed pairs online will serve. At the moment I feel the major differences are in the shape and fit of the lasts.

Sorry - missed your question - it's the Pilis last.

 

Update - maiden voyage today - pleasantly surprised at the easy wear to this point.  For sure I can feel the stiffness of the THICK double sole, but I'm not really franken-stepping.  The museum calf uppers are fairly supple as well.  Definitely very happy with them.

Nice

 

and which ones did you buy?

 

I think I like their Budapesters the best.

post #464 of 469
Got these about a year ago from @edmorel. Finally remembered to take a couple photos. Didn't really capture the longwing unfortunately.

Just got these from Massdrop. That's green. Not sure if it came out in the pic.
