    Yup, people clearly seem to prefer Vass' Italian lasts, at least here on SF. But there's clearly one of those network effect things (if that's the right term) going on. I'd say the excitement about Vass is self propagating and self perpetuating to a certain degree. Absolutely not a knock against the shoes themselves, and ultimately I think Ozzy makes a good point that Buday is nice to have as our little secret.

    And there isn't any substitute to trying on shoes for size, that's for sure. (Of course, again, lots of people seem to take the Vass plunge from a distance).

    I was lucky that Ed had a pair I could try on that was just 1/2 size off, so that helped me zero in.

    Anyway, let's talk about Budays instead!

    I wonder when Ed will be getting his new selection in so we have new photos to admire of fox suede and oxblood shell etc. I think he said end of January so it's getting close.

    @edmorel any news on new arrivals from Buday?

    I'm eager to see some photos of fox suede and oxblood shell!

    As am I. The Buday shell derbies I got from @edmorel are absolutely sensational.

    The Buday shell derbies.

    I'm wondering how these might look in a light colored deerskin. Pretty neat, I think...

    Soon, soon. I am down to like one pair each of what I have on the site, so I am chomping at the bit. I have people who have placed orders who are chomping at the bit. You know how these things go, sometimes 4-6 weeks, turns into 8-10 weeks. By the way, there will also be belts in fox suede, russian hatch grain etc.

    I've already purchased a Buday belt from Panta...


    In my mind.

    Edit: oh hi Ed!

    Greetings!

    Sorry for the delay, yes, they are mine, actually I live in Budapest and I know the leader of this small manufacture in person.
    Also the Buday Shoes workshop lays not too far from my home and I visit it quite frequently... I took some photos there with his permission of some new shoes (they are after the last phase of finishing, but without their laces yet). I also have more photos of his newest models, if you are interested.

    Same old shoes. Woe is me. Would love to see more from @guyfromhungary too. Maybe something in Buday's deerskin?

    Here, some photos taken by me showing also unfinished shoes, but they are from the newest leathers...

    @FrankCowperwood: I'll ask about deerskin shoes, they have some long shoes like on the first picture here from deerskin parts, also new models.

    Lots of great looking shoes. I particularly like the longwings and hatchgrain. Thanks for the photos!

    Great pics @guyfromhungary! I actually have those whisky shell boots (from Ed) and they are fantastic. I'd love to see more pics of Buday if you have 'em. [​IMG]
