Green derbies are marvelous.
Fiddler, thanks a lot for sharing your impressions with Vass.
I have not yet received my own pair of Vass, but this is due to myself waiting for a new bank card, while Vass is already present in producing my shoes.
Thus of course I can not comment on the fit for myself or the quality of construction, but I cannot agree more on the ease of dealing with Mr. Kuti.
He always came back to me promptly and being an English second-language speaker like myself, all his emails were plain, friendly and had an answer to all of my questions.
So far an absolute pleasure and recommendation from my side.
Very brave of yourself to go for two pairs of unknown lasts on your first order.
Great choice on the styles and leathers, they both look absolutely gorgeous.
Wear them in good health!
Very nice shoes Fiddler, wear in good health!
I just received my Vass boots and can confirm that the direct deal with Vass went very smooth.
pics or didn't happen!
If only I could justify another pair of green shoes. Me Lurv!
Glad the direct orders are going well. Some great new shoes, formulating my next order.
They look great Fiddler, congratulations!, glad everything went fine.
nephew, looking good
Whiskey shell, New Peter last, double leather sole with metal toes, goyser sewing, enjoy gents:
Have to say although the deal went smooth, and I even received a pictures of my boots before shipping, at home I found that Rezso finally forgot to add a medium arch suuport like on my monks, and a factory rubber topy - idea was to wer these when wet, that's why the goyser added.
Okay, can live with it.
Have to say New Peter last fits me better than F-last sme size, and it's almost the most comfortable last from all my shoes/boots so far.
Crockett is a bit narrow in a toe part
Carmina is a bit wide
Pic to understand the color:
Can you say more about the difference between the P2 and the Carmina Forest?
^ +1. I've got a slightly wide foot and normally take a 10.5. Would I be a 43.5 in Vass?
Those boots are most excellent. I must grab a pair.
Does Vass do a more traditional Barbour welt, or just a goyser?
Also, anyone know how the banana last fits compared to the P2?
