Thank you Notch, Vass makes truly beautiful shoes. They are very classic with that typical 'central european' touch. The craftsmanship is of a very high level and they offer great comfort. The Ilcea museum calf is quite something as well. But I don't have to convince you since you have some impressive pairs on offer. Great to have an official retailer in Belgium!
I'm contemplating my first Vass shoes, possibly plum museum calf, model 1052. For customization options, is the sole choice the main/only decision, or other aspects fully customizable, too? I've begun reading this thread from the start, and it seems like years ago, people changed the design in different aspects.
Vass has a generally very flexible MTO program.
Apart from sole and last choices, minor variations to designs, like a V cap, seams with brogueing, having a dropped peak somewhere, can usually be accomodated.
Thanks for the info. Is there a full list of options located somewhere? I'm looking for a mostly basic model, but perhaps some of the options would still fit into the design to make it a bit more personal.
There is no list of options as such. If you contact Vass or any US retailer, they will work with you to reach your design goal within limits. Note that Vass no longer sells directly to new US customers, so you will have to contact US or other online merchants to arrange your order. You can also travel to Vass store in Budapest if that is feasible.
Yeah, I've seen that page, but it doesn't show all the design options which can be changed :-/
Generally, you make a request through your retailer, or Vass, whichever route you are going through. If they can manage it, they'll agree, if not, they'll tell you right off the bat.
