I have asked Vass many times to send size 41 trees with my P2 shoes and they say yes but they simply don't compute this, they are incapable of processing this information for some reason and they send the 40 again, I gave up on that.

actually an amusing story.

if, i would be in your shoes. i would exchange them. put them together. send them a list in advance and do it. you might be out of a green one. anyway.

they look a tad big?

according to the derby/oxford discussion for the budapester, where i didn't participate. imo, this style is better served with a derby.

They fit very well and snug, the lacing is completely closed but tight and secure, not overlapping.

I agree, but I have a couple of derbies in the style, nice to have an oxford too.

entertaining story: you remember my suede oxford with goyserer?

i wasn't really aware that it is an oxford, as i don't mind them in general. god knows, what i told mr. kovacs, the maker, while ordering. actually, he doesn't speak a single word german as i do not hungarian. i mean, who really cares? i love, what he did and i wear them a lot. very versatile beater shoe in my book.,

Some folks were concerned abut the performance of leather soles in the rains. These have seen a lot of rain, slush etc etc.
