    How did you get your size narrowed down? The quality is always there it is the sizing that "changes with the seasons".

    What can you customize? There's a pair on the U last on their site that I like, but I think the U last will be too narrow for my wider, flatter feet and the F last would probably work better. I'd also like to change the leather. Can you do both of those, or just change the leather?

    You can choose any style on any last in the leather that you want

    Does anyone know if there is a shop in Berlin (or Germany) that carries Vass shoes? It seems Truschinsky used to have them, but not anymore.

    I've been searching but haven't hit yet.

    Any pics of an F-last Suede Norweger?

    Thanks. I thought the term norweger was used interchangeably and was used to describe a heavier, dress shoe

    I am going to Berlin in december, so I just wanted to check my options. I have thought about going to Budapest though, perhaps another time. :)


    Thanks. It's a bit of a long way from Berlin, so I probably won't make it though. :(

    Question: does anyone know how much Vass's other products go for? They make a really sweet briefcase...I want one.

    Any more info on exactly what constitutes a "norweger", or its history? For example, Alden does a "Norwegian Split Toe" (NST). Would this still be considered a "norweger"?

    Found this translation of a German wiki page, but that was all I came across.

    I think the Vass Norweger is one of the most stunning shoes I've ever come across. Sure would like a pair. But, for now, will have to live with just knowing a little more about its history......
