    Vass OEII / Oxblood boot. Even going 43.5 on F, I do get a bit of a lacing gap, but the overall fit is good. This batch of calf is very soft...run and order oxblood if you need a dark shoe.

    Thanks guys! Vass probably does this one in its sleep, but credit to them for OEII always looking great. Single sole on this one Mr. Six.

    Very, very nice indeed. Congrats!

    I assume that this model wasn't stock. Did you just specify that you wanted a boot version of the OEII?

    Thanks again everyone. @hoodog I don't think it is really stock, but I found an older store photo with a similar design and just asked for the OEII side and a few other specifics.

    Love that OEII bal boot. Might have to give that a go for the fall. Maybe dark brown museum.

    Has anyone had problems with Vass shoes creasing in front of the toe cap stitching even though the size is right? If I remember correctly, that only happens if the shoe is too long or if the leather in the toe cap is too soft. In my case, the shoes are double monks (model 64 in oxblood), and the shoes are definitely not too long, but it is possible that the leather is a bit soft there. I guess that might not be too much of a problem for monks, but I certainly wouldn't like that to happen to a pair of oxfords which I'm about to order.

    Edit: just checked the pictures on the website - it seems that the toe cap stitching on the Vass double monks is much farther away from the front of the shoe than in their oxford. Then it makes perfect sense that they should develop some creasing. Not sure I like it, though, but it's a minor issue.
