1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I like it a lot, the new peter last looks much better in person and in the feet than in photos IMO.

    Is this really mid brown suede ? It looks a lot lighter than the other mid brown suede i've seen before.
    Otherwise, nice !

    Ordered a pair from Vass itself just a week ago; Old English II last F 6125 Cognac. I'm 10.5 F with EG 888 and i ordered a 10 F for this shoe, they said it will fit good... I hope so.
    I am waiting for the shoes to be completed! It's a long wait until April....

    banis, gorgeous shoes! It's surprising how much the colour of edge dressing changes the overall look of any pair.

    Is it just the photo, or does the vamp of the right boot match the upper of the left, and vice versa?

    That it is. Been pondering a new pair of saddles for a while now ever since I sold my monks on the U-last.

    One thing to note with Vass high boots, the laces are pretty thin and will likely tear due to the metal speed laces. Not a bad idea to invest in a thicker pair of laces from a cobbler. I also just think they look a bit better with a boot.

    That's fun, funky shell for ya! I'm sure it's slightly like that IRL, but just enhanced by the photo.

    ^ Yes exactly, that photo was taken the day they came in, after wearing for a few days the color is "uniform", also got a theresianer on P2 in dark brown shell and must say P2 is the most killer last, very underrated, once you see f and p2 in person you forget all about U, funny how that works out

    How did you get Vass to make shell boots for you?
