 Well, lets start from the beginning shall we?..

“The founder and leader of Vass Shoes, Mr. László Vass started his own business in 1978. Belonging to a generation of shoemakers who were brave and energetic enough to go back to the roots of their craft, Mr. Vass has revived a rich, old tradition, giving the art of shoemaking new impetus in a new age. The main objective of Vass Shoes is to make ready-to-wear or bespoke handcrafted shoes of different style, fashion that are the most comfortable, elegant and enduring. In our workshop we use the same kind of tools that shoemakers used many centuries ago, performing hundreds of meticulous operations, with great attention.

Thanks to the uncompromising approach where excellence is a must, our customers arrive from all over the world in order to buy from our range of excellent quality hand-made shoes”

Mr. László Vass himself:

Well the first time I spoke to / corresponded with Rezso (Mr.Vass right hand man / sales manager) I knew I liked him straight away. Such an amzing gentleman and so helpful. He helped me choose my shoes and told me a little about everything that goes on in the workshop. Such an informative man and so knowledgable.

I highly recommend shopping with Vass Shoes. The quality of the shoe are outstanding. From the moment of opening the box and getting the smell of that beautiful leather has to be one of the best smells in the world. It automatically makes you happy, without even seeing or putting the shoes on.

The first thing you will notice about Vass is that they dont want to make quick money and churn shoes out all the time. They want to make a quality shoe that will last a lifetime and hold the beautiful shape. You are looking roughly around the £400 upwards for their shoes. And when you see what you are getting that is an amazing price.

Vass also do offer the vacility of bespoke shoes:

“On demand, we also manufacture bespoke shoes in our shop. During the last century, a hand-made shoe that perfectly fitted its wearer – that met the highest quality standards, therefore lasted for decades if treated suitably with shoe tree and repaired regularly – used to be a natural clothing item of a decent man. Today, its exclusivity and luxury is emphasized, although this traditional shoe made carefully after measurement may be worn for many years, as opposed to big-volume shoes that always change according to trends of fashion.

We prepare the bespoke shoe within six weeks from the measurement process, after which we inform our Customer and invite him to our shop to put on his first pair of bespoke shoe”

  1. I couldn’t agree more Justin. For me DB coeminbs the best of all the makers into an affordable, quality – forever “classic”, but highly sophisticated style shoe that people notice and ask about. Many times, I am complimented on my DBs whether it is my loafers or pebble grain wingtips or smoke grey laceups, people are attracted to them.
