    I like my shoe bags, too, but you're depriving yourself of a great opportunity to see your shoes arrayed together by keeping your shoes in them. Vass need to be on display, even if you're the only one to see them.

    That is very true... Perhaps I will keep 'em on display, and maybe snap a few pics while I am at it.

    Yeah, for some reason I actually have had better luck with suede than with calf! We shall see though. Thanks anyways!

    no excuse, there's always coffee suede.

    in my personal experience suede is not easy to stain and when it happens, it's quite easy and uncomplicated to get rid of them. paging mr. suede NOBD.

    ^ Yummy! Saddle and Whiskey are both so killer. Are those both single soles or double-tapering to single?

    The saddle one has seen more use, the whiskey one is newer. I am sure both would look just as nice with equal amount of use. One can hardly tell the difference between them when new. It's a bit like the difference between dark brown and cigar shells, which is very little.
    ^ Yummy! Saddle and Whiskey are both so killer. Are those both single soles or double-tapering to single?
    Both are DTS sole. I like DTS from Vass. It is solid. I have never had any issues with Vass soles, single, DTS or double. Even those that have been through flooded streets and all have remained unscathed. I can't say the same for my EGs unfortunately. Some of my EGs have seen the outsole come off of its midsole, and midsole come off of its welt at the toe tips, and I wear my EGs less than my Vass.
