    Where (in the U.S.) can I purchase Vass shoes? Do any retailers sell Vass shoes online?

    Regards,
    Brian

    It's been covered ad nauseum. Check the archives.

    To buy Vass in the US, go to/call Bergdorf Goodman. You will pay lots of $$. Sky Valet (www.skyvalet1.com) has a limited supply of Vass shoes that they are liquidating at a good price. They are a DC-based shop. Go in person if you can, as Vass sizing can be difficult to predict and I am not sure that the Sky brothers will be eager to ship shoes back and forth. Alternately, go to Budapest. The Vass website (http://www.vass-shoes.com/contact.htm) lists Louis Boston as another source of Vass, but only for special orders. Hope this helps.

    If my google language tools translation is to be believed, it looks like you can special order Vass through this website for around $550 [​IMG]

    The only time I’ve seen Vass shoes was earlier this year in Cologne. There was a small selection of clunkier models, brogues with double soles mostly. They were actually somewhat less then 400 Euros full retail, so the website isn’t even particularly cheap. However there were no U lasts, cordos, boots etc.
