    Vass needs to stay Vass, not a JL wannabe. What's the point of having different companies making the same shit?

    Thank you!, the old english (I and II) is my favorite Vass design for the Italian lasts.



    Not really, I have Vass shoes in F, U and P2 lasts but I don't think any of them look like JL7000. I do have a pair of black shoes like yours without the heel counter but I prefer the original old english with the counter.

    And I agree with others, I wouldn't like Vass looking like english shoes.

    Wise words! Vass should stick to its niche and avoid dilution.

    Damn this is a nice shoe Rikod, great choice. Simple & classic. Great with a lightish linen or seersucker suit.

    If someone wanted a shoe in the JL 7000 last, he should buy a shoe from JL on the 7000 last.

    I'm happy with what Vass has and I think they should stick to what they're currently doing. The U last is a spectacular fit for me and I haven't been able to get the same fit from C&J or Meermin or EG.


    I'm losing sleep over this museum calf thing...

    Is payment the only issue with Vass for Americans?
    From the info I got from Rezso, the shoes are 410 Euro shipped to USA(starting price, RTW).
    I vaguely recall something about bank transfer costs, etc. but still seems not so high compared
    to what is asked for around the internet. Is it customs duty?
    Anyway, I will probably be in Budapest and maybe can proxy to US(or elsewhere) if there is interest. Will make a more official post
    about it regarding the time, if there is interest.
