    Well, you did ask for comments.........


    In that last and that color, they look no different than the Allen Edmonds Mora. I don't like Vass's round toe lasts as I think the overall shoe looks chunky and shapeless. I do like the Vass U last monk strap shoe.

    Those look great AS!

    I see no resemblance to an Allen Edmonds shoe.

    I would have gotten a different color but those are very nice.

    Perhaps being a Vass cheerleader my opinion doesn't count- but I think they look GREAT.

    Disclaimer: I have 5 pairs...

    What's up with the spotty leather?

    I think your shoes look absolutely fantastic.
    Wear them in good health.

    Lobb makes a double monk strap as well. What do you folks think of those?

    Chapel, William I or II or Naseby? I'm sure there are others too.

    Lobb makes several double monks, which are you asking about. I like them all.

    Look good to me - although, like the others I don't understand why they arrived with a less-than-perfect shine. Should be easy to fix, however.

    I have to agree with Ed, I think they look underwhelming. I'm sure they're awesome in real life, but these pics wouldnt elicit such admiration if we didnt know they were Vass.

    For example, Diorshoe's Vass he's selling (2 red pairs) really look awesome in photos, which must mean they look stellar IRL

    Better quality Moras but just as chunky...
