Hi,

This is after about 5~6 wears...
Looks to be a crack? forming on the sole... Is this normal...?

Thanks,
Peter.

Does anyone know about sizing for their loafers or have information about VAT discount? I am interested in their tassel loafer but am waiting to pull the trigger. THanks.

Looks like a cracking is starting to form indeed. I would contact the seller and ask for a solution.

I did ask Velasca and was told "it is normal"...

I’m not exactly sure what people’s expectations are when you consider Velasca’s price range. They aren’t  trying to compete with the Meermin, Allen Edmonds, and Carminas of the world.

Independent of the price tag, I don't think this is normal. I don't own any Velasca shoes but I used to have entry level Blake stitched shoes and none of them had this kind of uneven stitching. Now when it comes to the longevity of the shoes I can't say if this will affect it but I imagine this might be a problem when you have them resoled.

Meermin shoes cost 160E + 20E shipping. Velasca oxford costs 180 E, derby 210E, free shipping in EU.

With such stiching "handmade" doesn't mean advantage any more.

Anyway I will see  if my pair of Velasca holds up well or falls apart in daily use. Wait until snow melts.

That is certainly not the case. Thanks for sharing that their customer service isn't what you would expect of it so others can steer clear of this brand.

Hi everyone, thank you for sharing your feedback on our shoes.

 

I'll reply in order:

 

Uneven stitching

We're always trying to improve on the evenness of the stitching on our shoes, and even though they sometimes come out uneven as in the above picture, I can assure you that that is more an exception than the actual rule.

 

It's really difficult to get them all made in the same way because the shoes aren't stitched by an industrial machine but there's a real person taking care of it. That being said, I agree with you that uneven stitching is unattractive and therefore should be fixed as much as possible.

 

Sole

It looks like the leather sole in the picture has some mold on it: is it possible that it received water without being properly dried out? In any case, if you'd like to take it to a local cobbler to get the beginning of the cracking fixed, we'll pay for the repairement ;)

 

Competition

We're working hard to deliver on our promise of cutting out the middlemen to deliver the best Made in Italy artisanal products at affordable prices. In fact, we often share the same materials with the most established international shoe brands ;)

 

I hope this helps!

 

Let me know if I can help in any other way,

Enrico

Resoled? Just buy 2 pair and rotate? How many folks are getting $200 shoes resoled?

Got the Birichin Derby from Velasca. Sale position for $ 157.86 (137,05 €) - that's pretty good for my opinion for this kind of shoes, plus free delivery by FedEx.

 

Size. The brand recommend to choose the size you normally wear in other dress shoes, cos I don't have any I'm gone 1 size down from my snicker size, as they recommend. My foot is 26.5 cm and I wear 8.5 US in Adidas/Saucony  with footbed in 27 cm. I took 40.5 Velasca size. The shoes is right on, exactly what I need, I measured footbed in 27.2 cm.

 

The shoes look pretty awesom, I don't see any flaws, I think photos will says more then my words (hi-res, close up). They break/stretch easily and comfortable for my foots, even I don’t use them outside yet. Maybe it’s not high end, but for the price/quality range it's a steal, and I’m stoked with them.

 

Can somebody advice me  what cream better to first use?

 

 

Full album.

I had my Velasca Shoes for around a month so far and after 10 plus wears it is still going strong. Wore it to opera and my events it is always the highlight of my outfit. It draws attention in a good way of course. I will order more when I get back to the states from Singapore the shipping cost is a bit of a killer.
