    Weasel suede!


    Which is to say, I spend way to much money with you guys. :rotflmao:

    I'm going to see how these fit (esp. whether I need to think about 10.5 in them), and I see another Frakno pair in my future in 2015. Looking forward to seeing this suede and the oxblood shell.


    Definitely put them high up there on your list.

    Seriously, if you find the shapes work for you, then it's a pretty stunning opportunity to get what I believe are really well made shoes, with all the extras (trees, taps, service), made to your specs and in a timely fashion. There's really nothing not to like.

    Those look fantastic Frank! Ed, how does Frakno fit compared to bp39. I love buday shell, I've been wearing the hell out of mine and they just come straight back with a few minutes brushing. Also, the soles handle ice pretty well! Wet wooden floors, not so much!!

    Frank, I've been eyeing that exact shoe. Might have to shoot Ed a PM soon...

    Congrats.

    Buday Shoes is a really great shoemaker from my country, they make truly the most beautiful shoes around...
    Here's a nice brown exotic MTO shoe from them it got:

    I had a chance to pass by the store recently. Didn't stop in (more interested in the Vass store) but their window was fun. Sorry for the poor iPhone quality.

    Nice photos!

    I wonder why Vass is so much more popular around here than Buday. Not arguing for one or the other. But it is interesting that Vass has become so popular.

    @guyfromhungary Are these yours? Very nice. I'm tempted to get ostrich one of these days. And not so exotic but I like the deer skin Buday shows in some of the photos on its site.

    I really need to add a pair to my collection. Love all the pics I see. I just hate going through the effort of figuring out lasts and sizing...

    The Italian F and U lasts made Vass famous. If it weren't for those Ugolini lasts, I would imagine the enthusiasm for Buday and Vass would be similar. I prefer Buday's casual offerings--like your cordovan derbies--better than Vass's, myself.

    I agree whole-heartedly. Trying to get the best last/size is tricky, And seeing a shoe in person can make a big difference in ones appreciation of the shoe. In my experience there is nothing like trying on the shoes in person to get the most satisfaction from them. That is why I regret not stopping in to Buday and trying some. Attila was the same way. They appear to have lovely shoes but I did not stop in. For those that can swing it, Budapest is a great place to spend a week shoe shopping. :thumbs-up:
