Austro-Hungarian school of shoemaking - Page 18

post #256 of 1289
Those Vass are really the first Norweger in plain leather which I like. For no particular reason, I generally prefer scoth grain like Matt's.

Had this beauties waiting for me today ... and I love 'em. The fit just perfect, no ifs, no buts. The length, the width, everything is perfect.

I am very impressed with the workmanship in these pair of shoes. They are amongst my most comfortable shoes now! Mr. Kiss definitely deserves a lot of credit (and support) for his work.

The kind of look like the vass split-toes above, don't they?

I like the lasted shoe trees too - and the calfskin is excellent quality:

Any recommendations for relatively inexpensive bootmakers in Budapest? Somewhere I can get all the necessary fitting work done in a 4-5 day trip.
