    Very, very nice shoes Roger! I've never been a big fan of goyser/norvegese, but I love the subtle take on these. Among the best norvegese-stitched shoes I've seen.

    I was thinking about getting the 270 white goyser stitching on red cognac, but was worried about it being too flashy. (I didn't want natural because it sometimes looks dirty)

    Thanks guys. I'm a fan of goyser stitching, though this is only the second pair of shoes that I have that are so equipped. My worry about the white stitching would be that it would actually get dirty, not to mention the risk of coloured polish or cream getting on it. It's a very cool look on the right shoe, though.

    No way those are F - I'd bet money on P2, as I have the same shoe in whiskey shell. The aerial view is P2....

    That's true. There is also this look I was pondering with yellow goyser.

    What would match well with Antique edge dressing?

    veni - it really comes down to personal preference. I think the goyser stitch works better in general with a brogued shoe versus smooth leather - it can look somewhat stark against the latter to my eye. But I remember that Notch had one for sale in cordovan that I quite liked.

    Not sure how I feel about the yellow. I think if I were going for contrast it would be something in a neutral tan colour. But that's just me.

    sstomcat - that's a very handsome pair. Nice to see so many shoes being posted of late.

    tomcat, beautiful pair of budapesters sir. I love their 270 degree goyser welt. Your posts of this particular style of old school shoe making has really excited my interest in Lazslo Vass handmade footwear. Are there any particulars about this make-up, like the last and material, that you can share?

    These are lovely shoes. I am really very fond of this last. I also like that the shoes appear to have ther own glass of wine and place setting. They make an elegant table guest.

    Thank you.

    Thank you. This is the Budapester in black cordovan with 270 goyser(the standard) Please note this is a short last and somewhat tight fitting in the forefoot area as compared to the 3636.

    lol they do.

    They are on the Budapest last.

    The different colors on the goyser stitchings as well as the sole edges are actually painted on. This is well documented in Vass' book.

    When in doubt, order white or natural color goyser, with natural color sole edges. See if you like the finished shoes. If not, any competent cobblers should be able to convert (i.e. paint) the sole edges and welt to dark brown or black relatively easily. Understandably, this can't be done as effectively the other way around.

    I ordered those rather flashy yellow goyser Cordo's, knowingly that I might get tired of them and have the goyser/sole edge converted someday.

    Such a wonderful shade of red! [​IMG] Are they pure red in real life?

    I would love a side-by-side comparison of red cognac and the new cherry red that surfaced not too long ago.

    Ecstasy - they are not pure red in real life. On my monitor, the images show a very close representation of the true colour. The examples that I saw of he cherry red definitetely look more like a pure red. I'd say these follow a progression in "redness" from Oxblood to Bordeaux to Red Cognac.
