    @Namor, am I right to say that is Vass whiskey cordovan?

    Gentlemen,

    How does Vass compare to some of the other shoes in this price range?

    Compared to EG, Enzo B., even JL, etc?

    Thanks.

    No worries. Before you post just add 200 to each of the measurements to make the image bigger. Thats the easiest way on phones

    Sorry about the lack of spoiler tags. This doesn't look like shell does it?
    Is it the heavily waxed horse/calf sold as shell that @RIDER has pointed out in the past?

    A high end maker like Vass would not use fake cordovan would they?

    ??? All of your questions in the past week could be answered if you actually just read the thread.

    And now asking if Vass uses fake cordovan?

    Vass uses horween just like Alden, carmina etc. horsehide doesn't necessarily mean cordovan

    Email Renzo at info@vass-cipo.hu if you're not in the US.
    If in the US, ask the vendor you're using (NMWA, etc), and they can guide you through the process, especially if you have any structural questions (quality, welting, etc).
