    That's intriguing to me, but good to know tastes can be so different! Someone above said this may be a "cultural difference", which may well be the case. Vass may be considered a bit stumpy in Japan/Korea/Singapore etc. But I suppose in the US or UK that kind of width and smaller front-part-of-the-shoe is considered good form?

    definitely.

    as you might not know drog abuse is not legal in my country, so i cannot take full advantage of your insights.

    i'll give amsterdam a shot and report back.

    Based on the picture, the Vass shape appeals the most to you?

    Anyway, given that I have posted enough counter-intuitive stuff in this thread, I might as well share my Vass pics -- that's what the thread is about after all.

    I'm a bit perplexed how gorgeous Vass looks from all angles except the wearer's POV.

    I don't particularly like any of them, but the vass looks best. The others look too dainty.

    This destroys them all IMO.

    The Vass is new and it's understandable that you like that kind of shape the most. But "dainty" the others are not. The Ferragamo is actually less daintier than the Vass, and it's not even double sole, which the Vass is.

    Anyway, it stretches my own imagination to have all these viewpoints...

    Honestly I'm so grateful that we all have these different tastes.

    Otherwise we'd all look so silly and dressed by the internet wearing exactly the same thing. Some like chisel, some like round. Some like sleek, some like chunky, and everything between. it's good.

    How do you like the double sole on your brogues?

    In terms of comfort? Very comfortable. It's a well made shoe. The double sole gives it a solidity that I quite like. Without being rigid. I dig my feet and heels when I walk, out of habit, so this works well.

    In terms of design - it's just that looking down at it (what I keep calling the "wearer's viewpoint") I need to get used to the cut. It's a bit more stunted than what I've worn in the past. But somehow the cut is such that it looks pretty good from all other angles.

    Yep. That's just me, but I have more and more of a preference for wider shoes these days.
