I am impressed by the workmanship, but for some reason these don't do it for me.
Nor me either. Didn't seriously think they'd be your particular cup-of-tea though it's one of the more novel hide treatments I've seen.

Believe the shoemaker may be working out of Brooklyn now -

That seemingly wood grained effect on the vamp is a real put-off! Just sayin....:(

I know how much you love Vass. Me too. Just got this barely worn pair from a fellow member on tof for a great deal. Plum museum calf, my first museum shoes.

just enough difference, although these and my burgundy shell brooks brother by c&J boots will probably be enough in burgundy for me.
who am I kidding, can never have too many.

They have the strangest names but some of the loveliest shoes. Zonkey Boot's hand lasted and hand welted 'Two One Four Ragnar' in calf suede.
