    These shoes were all purchased over a decade ago, when Vass was doing real bespoke.

    I visited his shop in Budapest.

    who cares, if it is a copy. you should already know that i like to kid...

    omfg, it was made in jest... [​IMG]

    Who cares about heel counters.

    here's your answer. imo, it adds to the character and it belongs to our tradition of shomaking...

    These Vass are absolutely amazing. Could someone please PM me with a means to get them in Europe? (Benelux). Flying to Hungary isn't really an option.

    I can accept many different approaches to design, heel counter or not. Each has its place IMO.

    luk-cha - Awesome new pair! You'll have to give us a shot in a more natural light to really see the color. Wear them well!

    it is pretty ture to life, it is like a rich chocolate hue with a olive tinge to it at certian angles, it is a lot darker than both a DB and cigar i have had from Vass before, i am guessing it is batching issues that you get with shell, but i am sure it will lighten up with time and wear

    watch this space as they say [​IMG]
