    Looks like you're still hurt.

    He didn't refuse to give you any opinion - he simply asked you to PM him. It's much easier to respond that way, as I would believe is the reason for his asking you to do so.

    He has never refused any sort of advice (or be rude) when I asked for it - and I've ended up not joining in two of his group buys after extensive questions, so it's definitely nothing to do with not ordering through him.

    You're just sensitive, and I find your dealings with Vass simply hilarious - requesting a purchase order with their letterhead and whatnot.


    But still, you haven't answered the question...

    They look great, congrats. I don't think I have seen a derby like that in their catalogue. The piece of leather with the lacing usually goes down to the welt (don't know what it's called). Was it a special request or is it a normal model?

    The real question is, what will I do if someone like YOU takes my money on behalf of Vass, fucks up my order and refuses to redress....come and rant here and call Interpol...LOL.

    There's always a risk in doing biz on the internet, when you're not using a credit card...I prefer to take mine with Vass.

    Of course, the real proof will be when I post what they send me here for all to see. Let us pray they do not send me some goulash and breadsticks eh?

    I think you really need to work on the way you express yourself, both here and on other forums.

    With your attitude towards vendors and demands for verifications and letterheads etc, one day you will get a big FO on your order confirmation.

    Zarium has it spot on, what are you going to do with the evidence if things go wrong? Commence action in Hungary for recovery? Zariums comment has nothing to do with alternative proxies, yet you rant on like some Prima Donna about Terrorsquad. What a precious princess....

    LOL, it's interesting to see that someone who claims to know about Vass and is also close to a Vass proxy can also get his Vass size wrong. I wouldn't want to any sort of Vass advice from someone so wishy-washy.

    Tells me all I need to know about the so-called experts.

    Cheers

    PS. Since you keep asking and don't seem to be able to make a logical deduction, if things go wrong, I will seek redressal...if it's forthcoming great...if not I will sell them....just like most people do. Don't worry so much about what I'll do...shouldn't you be creating more scary situations to convince people to use a Vass proxy instead?

    I'm no Vass proxy, just so you know. I don't know him (terrorsquad) in person. So, no, I'm not a friend of any Vass proxy. I simply joined in the group buy that he precipitated, because it's a good deal. That's all.

    I also didn't buy those Vass shoes new - I got them used off SF. :) Thanks to that size 41 on the F last, I now know my correct size!

    New, used, who cares> You got it spectacularly wrong.
    That makes you the last person I would take seriously for advice on anything Vass. And that includes your precocious sidekick.

    Can you boys either take this to PM, or back to the Kerbau please? You keep bumping this thread with useless posts.

    Hello gents, can I please intrude with some questions? I'm just wondering if anyone has bought directly from Vass and could provide a few details, since I just found out this is now possible. I've tried searching, but most of the posts relate to buying through proxies. It doesn't look like anyone has collected all the details in one place so far, so I'm sure the information will be useful for other members as well.

    • Is this price list still accurate, and were trees included?
    • What was the VAT %?
    • Who did you deal with?
    • How long did it take for them to send out the shoes?
    • There are some posts on SF claiming that U lasted RTW shoes featured in the catalogue have to be made for you. Is that correct, and how long did that take?
    • What's the deal with shipping?

    Based on my experience:

    • The price list is still correct; shoe trees are not included; they cost an extra 30 euros
    • I believe the VAT is around 20% but I stand to be corrected
    • You can deal with the sale manager, Mr Rezso Kuti
    • If they do not have the shoes you want in stock, it takes 4-6 weeks for them to make it.
    • It depends whether they have the particular model in the U-last that you want in stock. If not, it will take 4-6 weeks for them to make it
    • They ship via FEDEX and it approximately took 3 business days to arrive at my place. Bear in mind that there is a possibility that there will be brokerage fees and also duties charged.
    • Also do bear in mind that they do not accept credit cards so you will have to do a bank transfer. This is where you will have to pay the transfer fees.
