    So in trying to come up with my makeup for my first pair of Vass', I have come up with the following specifications for this model (whose name I still don't know):

    [​IMG]

    Antique cognac leather (with Italian polish - if possible)
    Medium brown suede (open to other suggestions of a better complementary color - haven't seen all the available suede colors)
    F last (seems like I would be a 43.5)
    antique sole edge and welt
    Double sole with sunken metal toe and heel taps
    Medallion (need to figure out what is available)

    Any expert advice is appreciated re: other available options or tweaks that you wish you had know when you first started out with Vass. Or any thoughts generally?

    Thanks in advance for everyone's ongoing help.

    Not sure, but the pic seems to be double sole going to single sole.

    Looks more like 6125 to me, not antique cognac. I own both colours myself.

    Should clarify that those specs are my choices. Not meant to replicate the shoe exactly. Just my spin on the style.

    Does it still count as porn if there are feet in them..? F last, cross-posted from Rock Your Socks. This pair has probably already made the rounds, since I'm the third owner, but still.

    missed out on this, anyway.

    generally speaking, i definitely ignore all this fw.cking colour discussions. when you have a rounded out wardrobe, this isn't an issue, imo.

    none of my shoes has the same colour as the other and i change the shades on a regular basis. time to talk about edgier edges, imo.
