    At that price point you can get full shell boot. Fully hand welted or good year welted.

    Yeah, prices have definitely gone up. Damn. My shell Valways were 700 euros 2 years ago. Carmina and Bonafe will do a shell bal boot for 900-1200 (ish). I can’t think of another maker who will at that price point.

    I went back and double checked the price. It was 760 euros plus 40 shipping. But that was VAT free since I’m in the US. With VAT it would have been 925.

    Vass confirmed the price I was quoted was without VAT for anyone that wanted to know.

    Hopefully they're serving you well this winter! Look to be in incredible condition despite multiple seasons.

    Incredibly sharp. I'm cautious of experimenting with colour (especially since my collection is in its infancy), but this makes me want to try some navy instead of black.

    Blue boots wouldn't have been my first or second pair, but I do get easily as much wear out of these as I do my black boots. Probably even a bit more.

    Not possible, something about not being able to block them properly before lasting.

    I think Ascot was able to get one done with them. Maybe they were clicked and blocked in the UK and then lasted in Budapest.
