Nice comparison Roger! Damn, we got two beautiful pair of shoes...
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.
^^^ True dat.
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.
You had the power to go home all the time.
May be decent if antiqued to hell and back.
I say punched captoe balmoral boot, double sole. But each to his own!
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.
Thanks for the report and congrats on the new shoes!
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.
Yes, congratulations are definitely in order JayJay. That is a fantastic write up about your experience at Vass shoes. Pics please when you get an opportunity.
