1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Title says it all, $600 shipped US and Canada, $630 shipped Europe, $640 shipped Asia. Vass calls this Bordeaux shell, similar to number 8 but has a bit more "life" in it. Comes with Vass bags and lasted trees. I've worn these about a dozen times. The condition is excellent as evidenced by the photos. There are two slight imperfections which I've tried my best to highlight: 1, the left shoe bares a slight scratch/scuff on the right inside heel. 2, The right shoe has small dark spots on the right outside heel. The leather came with the spots from Vass, it never bothered me. I attempted many macro photos to get it to even show up, it is barely noticeable except to OCD folks like me. The shoes have been polished with Saphir reno and #8 wax.

    Unfortunately the size is not quite right for me. My toes still get badly chafed.

    Thanks! I had noticed it in his signature and somehow missed the shell part! I just noticed the size first and was shocked when it was shell on top of it! While we're here, do you know anything about Vass's shell? I didn't know if it was Horween or another supplier, if not ill search more.
