    Really! Do you mean that water does not penetrate JR sole?

    Do the other suede shoes you mention have leather or rubber sole?

    I have both. If it is raining when I leave home, I go for rubber soles. But leather takes more beating than one may believe.

    I really hope we will get a detailed post with loads of pictures on your blog! Maybe even a Vass like buyers guide. I for one will will be buying a pair as soon as my finances will permit!

    Yes, that is the plan. Don't know if it will be as comprehensive as the Vass guide, depends on for example Riccardos possibility to provide good comparison pics for all his RTW-lasts and information about them, but some kind of buyers guide will be published on the blog. And Riccardo is taking pictures during the manufacturing process, so that will be nice.

    Literally can't wait for this! As of yet it is out of my price range but as soon as I finish uni and start working full time I will start putting aside for a pair!

    Sorry if already asked - is this mid-brown suede? I noted a reddish colour of suede in some recent photos from the shop itself. Does anyone own a pair in reddish suede?

    I saw different dark brown suede shoes by Vass. Do they have also espresso suede?

    Yes, it is mid brown, but it does indeed have a reddish tint to it.

    ^^ Someone mentioned a couple of pages ago that they have a new suede source...and they actually have a colour called reddish brown. Maybe it is worth getting an update from Razor.
