    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Great Vass.

    I've gone back and forth on liking/disliking the U last more times than I can count. Never seen one in person though. In this pics it looks fantastic. Other pics make it look really pointy.



    my friend, you never seen a vass u last in person?? then you must. when i get another u last (not mines) to handle , if you like i can ship to you so you can take a look for yourself. i will put in a paid ship label in there so you can send it back after you enjoy feeling and looking at it.

    I have not posted in a while with the obscene audio purchases and all but jeez I would have thought the bespoke Lattanzis would get me at least an honorable mention.

    First the Kiton fiasco, now this. Tough week.

    HELL yes. Incidentally I finally placed my first Vass special order today, though I went with the F last. I'd LOVE to see a U last in person. Actually, do you currently own any U last? I'd be happy to pay for the shipping...your offer to cover the return shipping is too much.

    They are dark brown. Reverse suede is what it sounds like - it is the other side of suede, which is of course not polished. When they polish the shoes they look like that. The forefoot has been polished more heavily, thus it looks less distressed. The trees are regular U-last shoe trees.

    well, i do have a couple of u ordered and in the making as we speak. a red cognac old english medallion and a burgundy blucher wingtip (budapest )full brogue U last.

    as many already know, I did have owned u last before ,temporarily, before selling them for one reason or another (sizing, not requested sole, etc)

    Chris, next time i get a U last to sell, i will ship to you to take a look.

    well, by that time, you may already have your F last. alot of people like the F last around here including heavy hitters like jcusey , bengal, and the shoe fairy.
    i personally love the U last. perfect.

    Gotcha. Thanks a lot Brian.

    Unfortunately my special order is going to take a little longer than usual b/c the Vass factory is on holiday in August (that's what Eva Vass told me via email).

    Vacca's selection is getting more and more outlandish.
