Buday is just a few meters down from Rozsnyai and Vass. You may have walked right by their store.
That is what Google maps said but they are wrong, that store is a smaller Vass store half a block from the larger Vass store. Buday is actually on the Buda side of Budapest across the river. First map shows actual location....never got there
(but there's always next year:cool2:). Second map is incorrect, maybe it was Buday at one time.

Then they must have moved because all the previous times I have visited the Buday store was a few meters down from the two Vass ones. I have not been for 3 years so it’s possible it’s changed.

I've been there more recently than 3 years ago but I guess that Buday could have closed a store since my last visit. There are two Vass stores (one large, one small) on the same block. The Rozsnyai store is on the same block. And the Buday is/was also on the same block and even same side of the street.

ˆYes-yes, stiff velvet boxes and polyester satin bags are included. I cannot recall if shoe trees were extra, you best email them about this.
If the bags are made of Polyester, I don't feel they deserve 15 EUR.

I wanted to copy the EG Brummell (faux wingtip balmoral) while removing the back seam but the pic I provided wasn't obvious on this and in the end it became a faux wingtip adelaide instead. This is totally my own fault but still quite happy with the end result.

I have fat feet with high instep in case you are wondering why the last is so "fat". Would probably try to get a more chiseled shaped last to compensate next time.

Overall, no major complaints from my end. Leather used seems to be crust as there is some uneven finishing which becomes obvious only under direct bright sunlight. This is acceptable to me considering the price but YMMV. Fit is pretty solid but I might prefer something a bit more snug on a future pair. Slight worries that the instep might become too loose after breaking in. Probably will have a better idea after wearing them out for a few hours.

Specs:
  • Oxblood calf leather
  • Seamless wholecut with faux broguing
  • English welt with blind welt at waist
  • Bevelled waist (though not very obvious)
  • White thread for welt
  • Talked about contrasting broguing to match the welt but seems to have been lost in translation.













Details:



Have to say, it is too amazing, while the last is too round overall?

Hey guys, just to share an amazing pair of MTO shoes I got from them recently.

Model: Budapest
Last: 323
Calf (#14 in their colour code)

In case anyone is wondering, they are really responsive on facebook and it is very easy to order a fully MTO pair of shoes from them. Have subsequently ordered more MTO shoes and found this was the easiest way to communicate my orders to them (via email):

Oh and to add, their webpage is up and fully functioning! There are many RTW pairs for sale (link here) but if you're anything like me, wanting to customize everything, they have a really intuitive MTO page (link here). You can pick an existing model and basically customized everything I've mentioned previously.

I had multiple orders requesting for models not in their MTO page and email was the way to go!

If you have sizing concerns, you can take the measurements (based on their sizing instructions here) and message them for a size and last recommendation. This was the way I went and the shoes I've received fit amazingly well.

Hope my experiences will clear up a lot of the questions brought up earlier!

Good to hear. I may be in Budapest in a few months and, if so, will absolutely order another pair.
