What other brands of shoes have you or do you wear?My first pairs of Vass (F-last) have just arrived. Contrary to what some say, it has no high instep. I have a normal foot, with a slightly strong ankle and lightly higher instep. The shoes are very tight and shouldn’t be any more so. One pair is tighter in width than the other, the reason for which can be spotted on the sole - the stitching is more towards the center of the shoe.
I have inquired with Vass about the heel stiffener topic. They were very kind but evasive on this topic but have offered to have “some leather” add as I have a protruding bone at the heels which causes very painful problems with many shoes. It is thus fairly safe to state that Vass is indeed using Celastic on their heels. What a pity. I hope they will change back to quality soon.
The "gaping" has been well discussed on this forum.but a significant amount of Vass shoes have gaping on various clients feet (this forum is a rather small universe and we have several cases), where that is aparently not the case with other brands. That incresed incidense of gaping cases with Vass shoes suggest that there maight be an issue within Vass lasts/patterns.
I have the same model and although it is a formal" brogue, it has a bit of fun added to it due to the colour variation. Enjoy!With the recent sale, I decided to try and invest in a pair of Vass. I went for a model named "Budapest Oxford", a full brogue on the U last in three different types of museum calf (brown, walnut and gold).
