    Just got a reply from Vass saying they recently increased prices, so unfortunately the 520 EUR I was quoted is correct for standard range including VAT, shoe trees and toe tips.

    Yes I received them this week, they are having a lot of trouble with the 3 piece shoe trees supply for some time now.

    Thanks sstomcat!, not easy, I'm still waiting for trees of shoes I received months ago, I understand the situation and just don't put pressure on them, they feel bad enough with the delays. These ones in the chukka (half boot, like they call them) was a nice surprise.

    Hmm, okay, so if the 520 euro is including trees and toe taps then the price is now 460 for the shoes, so they increased prices with 40
    euros then? Seems reasonable, was a long time ago that they raised prices, at least for italian lasts.

    From 420 to 460 is perhaps closer to a €40 increase :)?
    Did you have the opportunity to visit the St Crispins/Meermin trunk show in Sthlm today?

    Are three-piece shoe trees better in some way, or is it a matter of aesthetics?

    Yes, obviously, a but tired I think. No unfortunately I didn't, live in Gothenburg and wasn't able to go to Stockholm this weekend.


    They fill out the whole shoe better, but it's nothing dramatic in terms of function compared to standard trees.

    I like the way the front part fit in the shoe, but they just look cool, that is all

    I just received my two pair of shoes, one par of double monks and one pair of Old English both on the U last and in antique cognac. I also ordered three pair of belts. I must really recommend Vass and Rezo to all that are thinking about ordering, I got the size 0.5 wrong on the first pair I bought and Rezo changed them in to a more appropriate size without and hesitation! The quality speaks for itself, simply amazing, easily the best quality I have handled.

    Very nice! The belts are €90 and just as nice as their shoes. I am thinking about ordering a winter boot, which last would you recommend, F? Going to be a version of Old English II but without cap toe and added medallion and double row stitching instead of punched holes. Thinking about bordeaux/bordeaux pebble grain.
