    ^^^ Very nice. I am long past due for adding a Vass boot to the collection.

    Hello everybody. I'm new to Styleforum and I think it's a good place to make one of my 1st posts. After owning French (Weston) and Italian (Moreschi, Di Meglia, Santoni...) shoes, I took the chance to buy these Vass Oxfords in Bordeaux calf size 41F from a fellow SF member. Nice construction and fit like a glove! Would somebody tell me what model it is?

    Looks like the "Italian Oxford" - model number 63 on the website, on the F last. Here. Which is technically an adelaide rather than a true oxford, But now I'm just being pedantic.

    Also, gorgeous. Well done.

    Thanks very much for the info!

    Being an italian style shoe lover, it made sense I picked these as they are in similar shape to a few of my wholecuts. much thicker single sole though on the Vass..

    Quote:The sole look thicker than the image on the website too. Is a HAF sole maybe? (double to single)

    Could be wrong, but isn't that single tapered to double sole?

    Nice buy btw!

    These are really beautiful. I only have burgundy shell as an accent on a pair of Vass, but it seems like the handle the color very nicely. Are these on a single sole?

    yup...single sole...I think burgundy shell is the perfect color for the Alt Wien design...

    Thanks! Very happy with the buy.

    The sole looks very thick so I have to check if it's in fact a double sole. Not wearing them today but these beautiful wholecuts from Di Mella Napoli, bought from Vittorio at Morigi. Have the black and cognac and of course matching belts :)
