    sure. vass' rendition is to be close to the original which is a mocassin like style as stated in vox's write up, nothing else. actually, it depends on the last, not? look out for gdl203's and we can talk again.

    nothing austrian-hungarian about the norweger. afaik, it initally found his way in our terroir as a boot, a working boot and got urbanized. i'll check that, mebbe.

    The Demeter-Halmos version is a nice variation- no heel counter, but the longer toe, which to my mind balances the front of the shoe.

    Those Vass in dk brown Cordovan are just amazing [​IMG]

    very very nice- immaculate Goysering!

    The ghosted split toe and pie-crust vamp are an ode to the EG. buty hey, 4! kinds of stitching- Gerd, avert your eyes[​IMG]

    Those Crispins are nice. I really like the EG heel counter and prefer it to the versions without. Horses . . . .

    EG can make a version without the heel counter - they did so for RLPL and named it "Carter".

    It's Norwegian construction. The upper leather is folded to the outside, hence no welt.

    That's good to know, but I think the heel counter completes the Dover.

    Beebs, of you are looking for a boot, grab the Galway. It's easy to dress up or down [​IMG]
