That's an excellent observation. I think I'd noticed something different about the counter, but my brain had not processed what it was.
And so no, I didn't request this. The image I used to show how I wanted the two-leather makeup to look has the current model heel counter on it too. That can't be the source of the variation. I suppose I have to chalk this up to the individuality of the shoemaker.
Thanks for the reply. I absolutely love this 'variation' you've got. The long heel counters certainly add that special character... Difficult to explain, they just look so perfect.
Thanks very much.
I'm also feeling as if I am in luck with the fit. I'm still in the break in period, of course, but it currently feels as if my feet and the Budapest last in this size are going to work well together.
I'll note one other detail I'm happy with: The curves of the lower edge of the quarter and the backs of the wing tip run parallel to each other. They don't always seem to in the photos of Vass Budapesters I see, and I like that they do on this pair.
Cognac shell (quite dark, look like brown), F last
how long did this MTO took you, they were not taking shell cordovan order the last time I asked
I have something like this coming soon, except it is P2 in shark with standard sole. Here's hoping...
Those are lovely.

Another classic, and the 3 piece trees ....wooo hooo majestic.
Is this Antic Cognac? looks more brown/cigar to me.
They did Budapesters (P2) for me in that, and called it antic Cognac also.
I believe they call dark brown shell antique congac, with mid brown being saddle, and then whiskey lighter again. Although I'm sure one of the members who proxies or Rezso would have more accurate information.
