    Thanks everyone, Dpp the color is saddle shell, a bit darker than the original color.

    Aging only, or have you encouraged the color change with polish?

    Oh-- last/sole info?

    All my shoes are topied. I must say that the rubber put on by Vass is solid, especially since they nail the rubber to the sole at the toe tip.

    I don't have experience with the leather sole as I always get the rubber added.

    Aging only, I never polished these shoes, I think I will use some cream soon to smooth the scuffs a bit. F last, double tapering to single soles.

    Do you have single or double sole taped with a rubber topy?

    Single sole. I am short and light, so it makes sense to get a single sole.

    Really
    Really! I have just asked this because many boot makers from UK have summer sales, usually at the end of June.

    Hi I visited both the Vass stores yesterday and found everyone very friendly and helpful. I bought a pair of double monks on the k last which is a slightly longer version of the u last. They don't have a lot of models in stock so if you are visiting, it would be better if you order in advance. Cost is 405 euros with shoe trees after 10% discount if paid in cash but no vat refund. Vat refund only available if you pay by credit card and then it's only 13%. Cheers.

    How can you get VAT refund? Is it valid in all countries?

    If you are not resident in the EU you can get VAT refund in the usual way

    I was under the impression Vass was based out of Hungary, which is EU, but not UK, no?
