    I think it is the wax that Vass used to finish off the shoes. I personally don't mind it, and suggest you not try to remove it at this stage. With regular use and brushing, it should mostly blend in.

    That's what I plan on doing, just brushing and buffing it where the wax is near those seams, but for the most part, I scraped it off.

    I have so far gotten rubber toe tips on my Vass. Are there any cons of having rubber compared to metal toe tips?

    1. Longevity: they don't last as long

    2. On Marble/tile floors, especially in long hall ways, they do not make an intimidating sound as metal does.

    3. They don't hurt as much as when you are kicking someone in the face or nuts

    I want a three eyelet version in brown suede.

    I want US customs and the USPS to figure out how to pull their respective heads out of their corresponding asses and deliver a package that's been sitting at JFK for 34 days now. Just a small ask.

    why are you bothered, when you go the MTO route? they'll guide you through the measuring process.

    rule of thumb UK 8 = EU 42
