    pls, don't take offense, but it nails it. i just say tongue pads. these are not AE seconds.



    it's in fact not a minor detail and it shouldn't happen in this league. "you" pay top dollar for that, not? the haf-sole is not their strongest asset, though it's favoured by a lot of people. to each their own.

    on a side note: i don't make fun on the regard of the health of my feet. period.


    I don't understand what you guys are talking about. Are you saying that the toe of my monks is too high off the ground?

    Thanks. For what it's worth I love the shoes. This could be addictive.

    Just talk to Kolecho. Always the most efficient and effective way. Yes, you then pay full price, but full price on Vass is around deep discount EG prices.

    I have just two words for those: nice.

    The black sole is perfect for these.

    i remember from an older post of oshinex that they have a certified measuring kit.

    i'm just wondering, why "nobody" uses this effective tool???


    Does this actually exist, or are you just kidding? I very interested in Vass, but am clueless when it comes to figuring out what size and last would work best for me. Thanks.

    To each their own. I guess I'm just easy to please! I've been trying not to be nitpicky about minor details. Takes the fun out of things.

    On shoes of that value that is pretty weak....FWIW....at that price the problem needs to be corrected or new shoes capisce?

    I just think the issue of the toe balance being discussed here really isn't an issue to me eye.

    Fwiw, I measured and all the shoes in my closet apparently suffer from this same abomination (~1 cm).
