    How does Carlos Santos compare to Vass?

    Vass is about double the price, so I'd expect there's a big difference. But I have not owned any Vass shoes, so I can't comment other than that they look beautiful. Vass is a hand welted product while Carlos Santos is machine welted, just like Crockett & Jones, Tricker's, Edward Green etc.

    Carlos Santos is one of the best price/quality offers around these days IMO. But I'm biased of course.

    Nope, just a couple of weeks. Estimated to end of January but because the order was so large it was slightly delayed. Email was sent out just recently.

    Ah man I regret missing out on these. Anyone with a 9UK that wants to see their boots to me? I'd gladly take them off your hands! Drop me a PM.
