    Split toe in Oxblood looks great! I was considering it with a 270 Goyser but that looks very good

    Rumor has always been that they didn't like that combination. I was surprised that they were doing it at all.

    Looks very good. May consider something similar in the future, although not this year probably. Details, please if you don't mind?

    RogerP is always full of win.

    Can't make sense of that! What is more suited to shell than a Budapest budapester?! Which happens to have been my order in the group buy, too...no wonder he hasn't sent me a price yet. Bugger.

    For all you Vass lovers out there, some exotics extravaganza.

    Vass U last Adelaide, cognac shark leather & cayman. Size 13.25 :) New model apparently, makes it a prototype I guess.

    Those are very cool. I would never wear them, but appreciate the shoe.

    Thanks for posting this. You just gave me an idea! How does the shark leather feel compared to calfskin? Is it supple, stiff?

    The texture of the shark on the inner instep of the right shoe looks a bit odd - like it's been sanded a little flat and not taken the tanning as well. But I guess that's a fact of life with some hides, bound to get some variation. And honestly, caiman is a little "horny" for me, and I think I like it more in principle than in reality.

    But really, who gives a shit what mimo thinks? They're not my shoes. And a U last adelaide in TWO exotics is balls out and brilliant. Well done. :)

    @agedashidofu I don't have any shark from Vass, but my vintage AE sharks are perfectly comfortable - stiffer than calf, but no more than shell.
