Black Shell Cordovan
Here is an extremely well made example of one of the fundamental models of the gentleman’s wardrobe, the Cap-Toe Oxford. With its slightly more than usually pointed toe, this shoe is a gentle departure from the traditional Austro-Hungarian style and its emblematic tall and rounded toe box. This nods to the English last and taste more in demand by Vass’s clientele today, while retaining the tallness of the toe for utmost comfort.
This version by Vass is an entirely hand made shoe, made to order in Vass’s atelier in a rich quality of Black Shell Cordovan that will only improve with age. The sole is hand sewn, channeled and skived as would be expected with the best custom-made shoe and the heel is of the non-slip full rubber variety.
Custom made Vass Shoes are a rarity in the after-market. For those who wish to include an example of Vass’s work in their collection of custom-made shoes, this would be an excellent choice, a classic model, beautifully executed, and one that can be put to frequent use, in other words, not only luxurious and practical but indestructible too.
