    That calf looks brilliant. Very annoyed that I didn't participate in this order. I have to wait till July for my next pair. Also very annoyed that I didn't pull the trigger on a pair of Suede Chukka boots.

    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.

    Plus, it is just one more thing to do when getting dressed in the morning. I usually want to see my shoes when deciding on what to wear. My shoes have their own closet with a door which keeps dust to a minimum. However, if I haven't worn a pair in a while, a quick brushing will knock off any dust.

    yes fits too loose, dont fit as good as my pap's 3pc

    what a compliment, many thanks

    this is the slight difference between customized and serial production, i guess...

    Until now, I've never quite seen the point of this sole configuration. But these do look very nice.

    It's fine to question me on it. Do you mean aesthetically, or just that the heel looks low for the thickness of the midsole?

    Thanks dudes. As good as I had hoped! Im a perfect US 9.5, and these 43's fit really great. If anything, just an *eeensy* bit wide, but Im sure a 42.5 would have been too small. Anyone who has had variations between 2 half sizes care to comment if its a big difference or a small one?


    so they are black indeed. beautiful man where did you kop?

    Thanks man - Through SF, of course!

    What width are you in US sizing? I'm trying to nail down my size in Vass.
