    The ones in the picture look like they have the "HAF" sole, and resulting imbalance with the heel. Yours are better!

    I was under the impression Vass 'balanced' their HAF soles with added heel layers?

    I'm with you on this one for sure @OzzyJones. I see from the original post that these are cordovan. Beyond the style itself, which is terrific, I really like how the broguing seems to shade a little darker than the rest of the shoe.

    I suppose I might be waiting some time to get a pair in cognac cordovan, though I suppose I wouldn't know until I ask.

    I might have to add something like that to my wishlist. Right now it has far too many things on it, including:

    R last oxford OE plain in cognac calf
    R last oxford Budapest in burgundy shell
    Budapest last Norweger loafer in black shell
    Budapest or New Peter loafer in ostrich of some shade
    And then I might have to add that one in the photo above... I don't know if I'm a U last man though, so I'd have to figure out the last. Probably R or F.

    That's not too many, right?

    Better get on that. :facepalm:

    Maybe I'll pick one for one.

    Current MTO Announcement!

    Pardon the interruption, but here's a live one for anyone who's interested: we have a group MTO ready to go but due to a couple of late withdrawals, need another Vass fan or two to join us.

    We are buying a specially-created Vass U-last adelaide, with a v-cap and matching v-facing, and brogueing around each. This is a new pattern that Vass will make for us, based on this. The planned colour option is similar to the top shoe in the picture, made in antique cognac, with a brown scotchgrain facing and toe cap. There is also a second colour option in the same order, of dark red cognac all over. Goyser stitching is optional at no extra cost, but this GMTO is for this shoe, on this last, in one of these two colourways.

    Anyone interested, please PM me for a price, I don't want to clutter this thread or disrespect retailers by talking numbers. It's a good deal, but you'll need your money ready quite soon. :)

    ^^^ had heel slip on 44 in F (only size I could try on) so that's why I went smaller and figured p2 was a little wider
