    What last is it? New Peter?
    This pair has a all around goyser welt. Is that special request?
    It look like dark brown cordovan.
    I like the rat tail back.

    S0me1 plz reassure me that I wuz rite to git 3 rthr thn 5 eylets, thx. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    When I opened the box to inspect these shoes, I was taken aback to see how large they are. They are the largest pair I've ever handled from Vass. I then put them further away from me, and they look fine IMO, especially with the pebble grain finish. Shoes are meant to be worn with trousers over them, so wear them in good health. Just don't wear them with your Ambrosi drainpipes [​IMG]

    I like the Vass that I see.

    Maybe I'll get some.

    Maybe even a few in cordovan.

    Please do report back on this. I've heard the sizing can be fussy, so hopefully it works out for you.

    Give them a whirl and then try branching out to St Crispin's or perhaps Alden... [​IMG]

    Has anyone noticed that Vox has previously posted about 8 different F and U lasted Vass shoes

    He can fool some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but he can't fool all of the people all of the time [​IMG]

    The high boot is stunning to me. I like the ankle boot too, but the high boot looks really special.

    My fear would be that pants will hide the lacing altogether, leaving an expanse of brown pebble that looks a little shapeless. The lacing is often the wingman of a shoe, but for a plain-toe, sometimes the wingman has to step up and close the deal.
    Hmm... I tend to prefer my shoes w/o lacing or that show little to no lacing: plain slip-ons, venetian loafers, chukkas, and three-eye derbies. I don't own any chelseas, but I'd think they'd be similar. In fact, I just gave my brother my lone pair of five eyelet bluchers to make room for a pair of vass chukkas, that will hopefully arrive some day through Tom.
