    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Oh man I will have to venture to Buday and Dink at some point. But Vass has been very good to me indeed.

    That's a very toothy grin on that shoe.

    I just received a pair of Old English after exchanging for a different size from Ascot. These are replacements for my now-sold AE PA. I took the advice of rikod, Louis XIV and Torsion on sizing the second time around and they are a better fit. I think my next shoe will also be a Vass.

    Glad it worked out second time round @ktown but as I have warned you now you know your size Vass are super addictive!They should carry a wealth warning lol The OE is a great classic-I have the exact one on the way :)

    It's truly a terrible thing. Once you know what hand-welted shoes in lovely leather on good soles and quality leather heels, with a solid cork footbed and on a beautifully-conceived last feels like.....you're pretty much fucked. The first Vass arrived, and suddenly I was looking at another twenty-odd pairs of shoes I loved and thinking....meh...might as well start replacing these...
