Vass Group buy II - Worldwide, Australia, Singapore

post #1 of 335
Thread Starter 
Following the first Vass shoes group buy with members in Australia & Singapore, I am setting up a second venture but this time it will be open to all members.

The thread will keep updating as the prospective group buy firms up and/or more details come to hand.
For reference, the first group buy thread is:
Vass Group Buy no. 1 - AusxSing



We are apparently not restricted to only a few variations of last, style or leather although they would prefer if permutations were kept to a modest number.
I am having some sample shoes/boots made by Vass using a new exotic leather not previously offered by Vass. They should be ready within the month hopefully (Apr 2014).



Pricing:
It would be ideal if we can get at least about 12 orders to get a meaningful discount.
No definite pricing yet. I expect it to be much better than anything on retail or through the proxies (online or otherwise). As a rough guide, it'll range from 420 to 500 euros depending on the shoes specifications. The Italian U, F and K lasts are slightly dearer and options like flush metal toe-taps, tapering double soles etc. will be additions.
The proposed new leather will constitute an additional 80 - 120 euros.



Time-frame:
Estimated delivery date would be around July 2014. I am hoping to be in Budapest then.
That means the orders and payment ought to be settled before June 2014.




I'll throw some ideas for the Vass shoes/boots and interested parties can chime in with their thoughts. I suspect we should keep it to perhaps 3 style options (eg. chukka boots, balmoral boots etc.) with slight variations in last, width and leather?



Balmoral boots (suede upper perhaps)








Shoes (Double monks, adelaides or Italian V-caps?). Some photos from the first group buy








Chukka boots. Photos from the first group buy.

Interested. Pricing is exciting

Whats the new exotic leather?

Interested, keep me posted.
post #10 of 335

I'd be interested in a wingtip bal boot in navy or burgundy.  A tall boot version of the ankle boot shown below, with a grain shaft in the same shade, would  be right up my alley.
