They have the prices in forint (HUF) and then they convert to Euros and then we pay, 1 Euro is about 305 forint right know that should be around $415 for a F last shoe, a few months ago was 290 and that's about $435.
Lately the variation is not significant so I don't pay too much attention to it and just asume the same price in Euros as my last order.

but you are right, it should compensate, right now we are paying less Euros than over a year ago when the forint was about 270 or so.

It should but it doesn't.

Vass has always charged a flat rate irrespective of the Euro/Florint/Dollar fluctuations. They give a Euro price (same for the past few orders) and I convert and pay in US dollars. The $$ to Euro play in but is in significant.

Like many of you here, I enjoy reading the posts from our lively and passionate colleague fritzl, a serious devotee of the AH school of shoe making. As such Fritzl, or Gerd, and I have been exchanging PMs about shoe construction and the different styles of manufacture. Gerd informed me that another SF participant, Slewfoot, had a pair of the famed Paprika. Slewfoot was kind enough to agree to forward the shoe to me and I thought it would be good to photo document these in this thread. Gerd can fill in the blanks and help tell their story. Hope you enjoy.
