    Congrats on the arrival of these. However, the absence of split toe and the way the quarters bisect the length of the shoe throw the proportions off. I'd say the latter is more of an issue in my mind.

    Thanks for the comments guys - but at the
    end of the day - they are just Shoes.
    Perhaps I am less 'scientific' in my approach.
    I like Dark Oak and I like the 888 Last.
    I have not yet had the pleasure of owning
    a pair of Vass. Perhaps one day I will, if
    nothing other than to undestand all of
    the SF hype.

    That would look fantastic in a lot of different shades of brown. I'd like to see it in a antiqued dark brown.

    why?

    isn't this a model a lot of brands have in their line-up?
