    I'm thinking maybe cherry red budapesters with a 360 degree gold goyser welt edge stitching. When your ordering bright red shoes might as well go all the way crazy.

    A little bright for me. But choice is good, and for those that want a bold pair of shoes, rock on.

    I suppose if you choose a red shoe it doesn't matter what colour the edge trim is.

    I was thinking red, that's why I asked vass if they had something like that.

    But on second though, I don't want something bright red, and too chiseled. Reminds me of Kansas, Toto.

    Vass has an amazing operation, but what impressed me most was the service. It took a while to find a size and last that worked well for me. The SA was not only patient with me, but she even went back and forth to their sister store a few doors down to make sure I saw everything available in the types of shoes that interested me. The other SA in the store was just as helpful.

    They have a broad selection that's quite impressive. The only shoes that didn't appeal to me were the exotics (i.e., gators/crocs, ostrich, etc.). Of course they'll make whatever you like.

    I was looking in particular for a blucher in shell, and found exactly what I wanted: a punched cap toe in burgundy on the 3636 last with lasted shoe trees. I may go back before I leave, but if not, I know I'll be ordering more.

    Can't say enough how pleased I was with the shopping experience. The SA's, especially the one who assisted me most, provided exemplary service.

    Sounds like you had a wonderful time at their store!
    Happy to read that their SA at the shop are just as patient and helpful as Mr. Kuti is via email.
    Vass is a class act.
