I had a similar thing happen, though a much more extreme difference. The leather was a complete different color than what we had agreed upon. The problem is when they make these mistakes, the mistake shoes are still so beautiful that they are hard to turn away.

In my case they offered me a discount, which I believe is the proper thing for them to do, so I accepted the boots. They are one of my favorites now, and bonus, no one else has anything like them in the color.
photos?

I didn’t even know Mehra even existed... and they’ve got an Old English Oxford in black calf in a 41 on sale... not sure what the last on it is.


I think I’ll go out next week and try it on. I wear a 41 in Common Projects, so maybe I’ll get lucky.

News from Budapest! I asked them to replicate the second shoe, but the workshop left off the broguing around the eyes and the ankle. Reka isn't sure how it happened.

Should I accept Vass charm or ask for a remake based upon the agreed upon specs? I feel like it's bottom-heavy, but I would appreciate others' thoughts
If you like them, ask Reka to have them delivered. If you don't like them, ask her to have them re-made.

Due to my wife recently watching that contemptible Marie Kondo, we (I) are doing a closet clean out and certain things (predictably, mostly mine) must go. I would much prefer to sell these to someone on the forum, since I know they will be appreciated. If not, they'll go on ebay for a higher price. I give you the Valway, in Antic Cognac calf and dark brown suede, with Vass installed Topy on double to single sole and lasted trees. They have been worn no more than 10 times, and that number is likely high.

Size is 43.5 and I feel that they fit a bit narrow. This is likely due to them not really being worn enough to be broken in, but in the interest of full disclosure, I wanted to mention it. Price is $400 shipped in the lower 48 and that is firm. I welcome questions and hope they find a good home. Thanks!

Absolulely beautiful boots. Alas neither my size nor my need in SoCal. But perfect for the coming winters up N.

Those are pretty nice.

How do the Old English shoes fit? Large, small, tts?
