    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.

    Just also noting that Vass 'Italian' last shoes are 420EUR plus 25EUR for trees and 20EUR for toe taps for any of their stock ranges in any standard leather (non-shell, non-exotic). That's ~£345 / $530 plus shipping. It also includes taxes, though I don't think there's any way to deduct those buying direct.

    For MTO the Ascot prices start to look like a better deal. Not knocking them, but they do seem to charge 2x Vass prices for any of the extras like trees or toe taps...

    After awwing over all the great vass shoes for many months in this thread. I finally decided to go ahead and place an order with Mr Kuti, who was amazing to deal with by the way.

    I decided to make a copy of @RogerP oxblood double monks on the f last instead of the k last. Now the for the tough part the 6 week wait for them to be made.

    +1 - I did my last Vass MTO through NMWA and can't say enough good things. Greg and team do a great job.

    For any and all more knowledgeable than myself, is there a fixed (relatively fixed) set of prices for Vass, a la Rosznyai (sp?) shoes?

    Can you go directly through their website? A vendor like NMWA? Other options? If so, what is the process?

    Prices will vary by source, and currency values can have a pretty big and variable impact.

    That certainly makes sense, thus my question.

    Is there something along the lines of "X" calf shoe (obviously a touch more for a boot) will run "X" Euros, or "X" model in Cordovan will run "X" Euros?

    Obviously it would be dumb to ask for an exact price given a hypothetical, but I was curious to know if there was a relatively fixed set of guidelines regarding prices.

    Essentially, something like this:

    If X pair of shoes are being sourced from Vass, Notch, NMWA or Ascot the price may well be different from each source due to any number of factors. The price is only relatively fixed if you take a fairly expansive view of the term "relatively".

    That isn't to say that the price can't be determined - if you have a particular pair in mind just contact the vedor(s) for a quote.

    Last pair I ordered (Oct) was 440 euro + 40 shipping + shoe trees I think. That price list looks to be with VAT included?

    How much narrower is the toe box for K compared to U? My toes are on the edge for U but it isn't uncomfortable. I think K would be ok based on my research, but any insight would be appreciated.
