    come again?

    this is why I hesitate to order again from vass, for fear that they have some unknown leathers that would be more awesome than what I ordered

    sorry to rehash the same topic but what do I have to do to order a pair of Vass? I really want the Vass U-Cap (in the pic below). I don't know who posted this pic but that is one fine looking shoe. Was this a MTO?

    how are payments made? what about sizing? I know nothing of Vass lasts. I wear a UK8 (at least I do on AS shoes) and a US9D on the Alden Hampton last. Would a EU42 work for my foot?

    ^^Lovely shoes. I see that you have the same issue I had with my OEII-creasing on the cap.

    I have a buying guide on my blog which answers all your questions: http://www.shoegazing.se/2012/10/05/kopguide-vass-shoes/

    Just moved the blog to Wordpress, so this post looks a bit sloppy and some pics are missing unfortunately, hadn't had the time to fix that yet.

    All my Vass crease on the cap, but I wouldn't call it an issue. Vass use short toe stiffeners, shorter than the external caps, that's why this happens. You have to keep those two things apart. A creasing toe stiffener is an issue, a creasing toe cap is not.

    Thanks, j. I remember reading about it in this thread.

    I prefer the look of the non creased cap, which is keeping me from ordering another pair of cap toes from them.
