Prices range from appx. $430 - $660 depending on which model, whether or not you choose shell cordovan, and whether you choose custom or RTW. But make sure you factor in the cost of a trip to Budapest.. So yes, the shoes are much more expensive here in the US. In Budapest you are buying directly from the maker, therefore you do not have to factor in the considerable amount of work that Gabor and I perform to sell the shoes here in the US, and the markup in the stores. This is the same for most goods - you can get your Kiton and Brioni suits for a lot less if you fly to Italy, but then again, you have to pay for a trip to Italy. Also, compared to other brands at the same price point ($700-$1200,) Vass actually represents a value on the US market. That may sound ridiculous to some, but there is FAR more labor that goes into a Vass shoe than say, an Edward Green or John Lobb shoe, which sell for the same amount. Besides Silvano Lattanzi, no other shoe on the US market is as handmade. Handwork may not matter to you, but it takes a lot more effort, time and skill, and therefore is going to cost more.
