    Hello Fiddler,

    These are the new Suede colour from their French sources.
    Top known as Brown and the bottom know as Red/Burgundy.
    Don't think we have an official colour name as yet until supply
    guaranteed to be consistent.

    Hope this helps.

    Sammy.

    The color is darker in person. More burgundy than red, If I remember correctly.

    Greetings all,
    I am a long time lurker but I just had to post. I've been through a good 60ish pages of this thread, including googling on vass f last sizes. And I've been more confused than if I hadn't tried at all. I'm amidst talks with mr Rezso to commission my first pair of vass saddle shell cordovan captoe boots.
    I've read that for a US9D, I can be anywhere between 41-42.5 on the F last. Plus I read somewhere on here that cordovan models size large, between 0.5-1 size difference, like seriously? Vass could be the hardest pair of shoes to size online!

    I am a US9D, slightly on the narrow D side.
    8.5USD for Alden's Indy in trubulance, shell chukka in Barrie, for a perfect gloved fit with ample room in the toe box.

    I know this has been asked way too much, but I could use some help! Does vass cordovan shoes really run larger than calf models? Any thing I should take note for a 7 eyelet derby boot on the F last? Help a man forge his pair of dream boots!

    You are right that most Shell shoes do run slightly larger than Calf shoes, but I suggest follow your normal size, don't think about size up or down.
