    I shop at Degand too. Fantastic place and their EG selection is well curated, as is the rest of their amazing store. Did Christophe help you with the EG? (He's amazing BTW).....

    Enjoy the shoes!

    Will do, thanks. I unfortunately can’t remember the name of the person who sold me the shoes as I have only been to Degand twice both times leaving the shop being a happy customer.

    I like the 202 last and they have a nice selection in that last (bought some Chelseas as well). They also have a good mixture of more traditional shoes and shoes which are a little more flamboyant - I often find that shops generally tend to lean towards one end of the scale.

    These keep growing on me every time I wear them. Far and away the best impulse purchase I've made in a while.

    jfyi @fracanzano - vass does this style very well. I'd say it is one of their signature styles after the budapester.

    sure it is, it is just not attractive to some incl. me. never got a reply on my enquiry, where the burnishing derives from or is it just a fashion statement?

    not even @bengal-stripe could give a proper answer and/or just ignored my research, who knows?

    The Alt Wien is certainly a signature item, but except for the F last, I don’t care for the proportions of it. Cap down near the point of the toe, the quarters too high. Leaves the vamp about the same length as the cap, which seems wrong. EG gets the proportions better. And in spite of everything else, Gaziano nails those proportions.

    A slightly better picture of the Coniston

    These chelseas on the 82 last I got BN on eBay for GBP 310 back in 2011.
    They were allegedly from an EG sample collection, and although they look somewhat like the Newmarket I've never seen another pair quite like them.

    well, each to his own, I suppose.

    of course, there are probably nuances in the aesthetics. it is just a fact that the concept and aesthetics works for almost two centuries in favor of the feet from people from central and eastern europe. btw, the model is called "Wiener" and it is a reminiscence when both capitals of shoemaking where rivaling for the crown. it is a draw and both styles - the "Budapester", which needs to be on the Budapester last to be genuine and the "Wiener" have their fans around the globe.

    tbh, I'm not aware what G&G did in this field, sorry.
