    Well I was thinking group to avoid the ridiculous shipping cost Vass charges (100 euro I think) and instead use Hungarian post which comes to about $60 USD and also take advantage of the 10% discount offered when paying in cash, not wire.

    Hungarian Post charges close to $71.00 and Vass will ship your shoes via Magyar Post if you specifically request so. Oh, yea and cash discount is 15%

    Thank you fritzl, I am looking quite forward to them.

    Can you tell me if this is natural or white stitching, difficult for me to discern on my monitor
