    So, my folks went to Budapest with a bunch of their friends a few months ago. I was hoping that they could stop by Vass, but to my chagrin, they were unable to find the time. Or so I thought. So on Christmas morn, I had a letter from my parents, and in this letter, was the following picture:

    Well, maybe they did go... and under the tree was a beautiful pair of shoes that my parents and their friends picked out for me. Supposedly Mr. Vass was quite the gentleman, and they thoroughly enjoyed visiting with him. And the last Christmas miracle of all... THEY FIT! Talk about getting lucky. More pics will be posted in the Vass thread later, but I wanted to share the story with you guys.

    Merry Christmas:

    Thank you very much!


    Thanks bud, Merry Christmas.


    Danke! Merry Christmas.


    As am I! As are also my folks... I am pretty sure my mother just about had an aneurism about the fit (these are parents who have never worn anything other than Nike sneakers).


    It is a Vass shoe kit! It is very cool. Does not have much that I don't already have, but it is a lovely travel case.


    No problem HRoi--they are U Last, they are three colors (dark brown, dark cognac, and cognac I think), and they are the Italian Oxford I think. It is a true brogue, not an imitation brogue a la the Inverness. They are also seamless.
