$400 shipped. A gently used Vass for this price? Come on. I'm taking offers but am prepared to let these float on eBay than lose much more than at this offer price. Note, the $450 $420 $400 shipped plus shipping price is for US only, international shipping will cost more. This is a beautiful shoe that I bought late last year and have used as part of my rotation around 15 times. I am letting it go with great regret because, and despite my wishing otherwise, the shoe is a tad bit too long for me. My hunt continues, but meanwhile this is your opportunity to buy that lovely Vass shoe at a very reasonable price. Now, the description: Vass Black Longwing Sz 42, US 9. Toe taps installed (see silver metal plate at the front). I understand that the leather is called Scotchgrain, it has that 'pebbled' texture, but please take a look at the pictures. As to the last - I believe it is New Peter (not sure), but again see the measurements below: Shoe measurements: [B]Right: [/B] Length - Between 11 7/8 inches and 12 inches Width- Between 4 inches and 4 1/8th of an inch Left Length - Between 11 7/8 inches and 12 inches Width- Between 4 inches and 4 1/8th of an inch The leather and soles are in great condition, but please take a look at the pics. Please note: I have described the shoes to the best of my ability but please see pics and measurements to make up your mind. I am NOT, REPEAT NOT, accepting returns unless i have made a significant error in describing the shoe. So ASK FOR AS MANY PICS, DESCRIPTIONS AS YOU WANT.
