    Yes, that's their new store, which is several doors down from their original one. Was there earlier this month but they did not have the shoes in the style, color and last that I wanted. Left empty handed. :mad:

    You definitely should as you would not be disappointed for various reasons.


    I guess you did not want to order "the shoes in the style, color and last that I wanted", it does not cost extra.

    The S.A. did inform me of that and suggested that I email them with an order. She was very helpful and personally escorted me from their tiny original store to their new one. Once there, she asked the staff to show me whatever shoes they have in my size. Unfortunately the selection was very limited.

    The U last shoes I tried on fitted differently even though they were marked the same size (I understand Vass has size-inconsistency problems.) This is why I haven't decided to order or not.

    actually this is not the correct description. it's a feature with handmade goods, though. there's a reason, why it is recommended to try them on in person.

    Does Vass have a stock black austerity brogue shoe? If so, do you know if their new store will ship shoes to the US?

    I think the austerity brogues are MtO only, but I'm not 100% sure.
