actually, i recommend mr. xia a few lessons in history.

brasov in the wikipedia

Germans living in Braşov were mainly involved in trade and crafts. The location of the city at the intersection of trade routes linking the Ottoman Empire and Western Europe, together with certain tax exemptions, allowed Saxon merchants to obtain considerable wealth and exert a strong political influence.

Interesting read. I guess you don't get my dry humor. It was my way of making fun of things from former communist countries. Especially shoes. I'm not a fan of Warsaw Pact shoes.

In all seriousness though, I intend to get some Vass.

If you say 'A', say 'B'. Or don't say anything at all.
So, what are the differences between pegged and sewn shoes?
