these are awesome, guys. Love both make-ups.
I posted these a few weeks ago when new, wanted to post again after a few wears at the office, bars and restaurants, and walking in the rain. I love them so much that I want to wear them everyday. The tones of the saddle shell are unreal IRL. Hope you enjoy the pics.
dang no. he doesn't answer the phone. this is mind boggling sometimes. actually, i hope he is well after this big loss, when his mother died. will update asap. sorry for the delay.
rule of thumb, especially with oxfords: don't tie them too tight in the breaking in period. adjust the laces during the day.
normally this should help. good luck and let us know. ty.
The lack of an achilles stitch makes them so much nicer.
Thanks for pointing that out, I haven't noticed or thought about it. I posted the ass shot for the color. I think this is a Kolecho thing. Thank you Kolecho for your help choosing and ordering these for me.
Vass cordos come like this..
Oh, I see, thanks, but I was checking and I have a few calf just like this too.
I have a similar pair. Can't say enough about saddle shell. It is my favorite light-mid tone shell colour. Budapest Oxford is probably the best style Vass makes IMHO. All this, plus a great (F) last and hand made shoe. Enuff!!!!
And here is my second favorite design:
Thats true, however I have not seen any shell with the stitch, and I may be wrong!
I was out a couple of weeks, these are gorgeous!, congrats
Thank you, how long back did you get those in saddle? Vass does not have this skin it seems.
Question for the audience - Why would you choose a metal toe cap over rubber? Has it got to do with Longevity, aesthetics or simple preference?
Can you get flush rubber toe caps?
