    cheers man- point about the Dover, to paraphrase a well known Ebay seller- 'can any machine do this?' that's what I call art.
    It's the same with the rest of Vass construction - you can't tell much about the degree of hand work just by inspection, but knowing that they're hand lasted and hand welted says that in some far flung workshop there's people making shoes same way they did 200 yrs ago.

    i like the style, but the last is too gaudy for my taste and the shape of my feet.

    Pure 1930s revisited but typical of Guyot done authentically...maybe a little pointier/Italian than that era.

    imo, these discussions are educational because they bring various aspects to the table and interested parties can make up their mind.
