    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.

    They deduct VAT too so that's about $425 inc. shipping to the US.

    Gents: Need sizing advice since I am not aware of any DC stores that stock Vass. I am a 7.5 UK in EG and GG (sort of in between D and E). My guess is that I am a 41 but which lasts are for people with feet on narrow aide of average? Was interested in a shoe in K last but have no idea if that works. Thanks.

    If your feet are on the narrow side I'd say go with a 41.5 in K or U.
    NMWA is your closest stockist I believe but I don't think they have any K last

    Great to know! I'd love to do one like this on the K or U last in a nice museum calf or plain smooth calf where i could burnish the toe like on the GG pair above!

    I've been thinking about this all day! Came close to pulling the trigger with Mr. Kuti but was talked down by cooler heads. ;)

    Love it! Would love to see that as a mixed media with mid-brown suede.

    Will try to take photos next week. Let me know if you guys want to see specific swatches.

    Exactly what I was thinking! Midbrown suede with a grain leather saddle would be awesome.

    You got the Sony @NAMOR ? I am pretty tickled with mine. Consider the 50mm f 1.8 portrait lens as well. The kit lens is okay, but this is a real step up.
