    Subscribed in hopes of a third group buy. Also completely in the woods about how sizing would work out. I'm a 10.5 US 3E width in both Allen Edmonds and Alden Barrie last.

    Received my

    Received my MTO modified Osloer boots last Monday. Extremely happy with them. I am 12D Allen Edmonds Park/TTS and ordered the boots on the P2 last on size 45. Perfect fit thanks to Arahat's sizing advice, smooth transaction and exemplary service throughout the whole process. Highly recommended.

    Hello Vass-friends,


    I'm currently looking into options of getting myself (red)brown toe cap cordovan shoes or boots. The tricky part is that being female and without huge feet, I'll need a women's size or those small men's sizes that are never made as a standard.

    I have been communicating with a very friendly Vass' sales manager about this kind of shoe:


    - Theresian model
    - V-shaped toe cap
    - 3636 last
    - No. 8. Shell Cordovan
    - women's shoe
    - single sole


    A single MTO would be 490.- Euro VAT free, shipping to the US is 40.- Euro extra, I'd highly assume it'll get cheaper with more buyers.

    Other shell options they can offer from Horween would be Black, Cigar and deep Cognac .. but I'm pretty set on #8.



    Now I'm curious to see if there are folks out there who would be interested in a GMTO.

    The model:

    The leather and V-shaped cap:

    The last:

    Please let me know!

    ^^^ Are you sure about that price? It seems very cheap; 530 Euros is less than $600 which is a total steal for a single unit MTO Shell shoe shipped to the USA with lasted trees.

    You are right, In my experience that price would be for regular leather - there will be an upcharge for shell.

    ^ It seems quite cheap, I was surprised/delighted, too. But we always spoke about shell shoes. I'll double check.

    How many buyers usually get together for a group MTO with Vass in your experience?

    Yup, the price is confirmed. Genuine Horween shell cordovan, VAT free. But only for women's shoes...
