Laszlo Vass

In the two previous articles about Hungarian Laszlo Vass, we have looked closely at the company’s history and its craftsmanship. In part three we come to the product range and all the different choices available.

In addition to a world-class craftsmanship, Laszlo Vass has a number of other benefits to many of its competitors. One of these is that in principle all the shoes of the company are made to order. Producing Made to Order shoes is something that more or less all premium manufacturers offer but what makes Vass quite unique is that even their Ready to Wear range is made to order, which allows the customer to select details like Read, Model, Ovanläder and Sulval as well details at no additional cost.

Ready To Wear – Laszlo Vass has on its website a plethora of existing models with specific codes. However, the shoes on the website are not limited to a specific color, leather or read, but rather this is inspiration on what to choose.

Made To Order – Vass also has an MTO that distinguishes itself in the ability to correct and create alternative models in addition to those on the manufacturer’s website.

Reading – Laszlo Vass currently has nine plays consisting of the more classic Budapester and the 3636-class high-toe box, Peter’s P1, P2 and P3 lessons with a lower round toe party, the very British R-read, the spicy newly developed K- the reading and the two Italian lectures U and F made by Florentine spokeswoman Roberto Ugolini.

Models – In addition to the choice of read, which of the different models you want. Vass has a variety of basic models such as oxfords, derbys, monk straps, loafers and boots but there are also a number of variations.

Oven leather – As mentioned earlier, the shoes are made to order, which means that all models are available in the performance that the customer requests.

Vass currently offers shoes in calf leather, suede, grain and cordovan as well as a number of exotic leather like ostrich and Kajman. They can also combine sections of different shades or materials at no extra charge.

The calf skin comes from the French tanner Du Puy and is considered by many to be one of the world’s finest and is available in a variety of shades of cognac to green and black.

The Cordovan carnival is not surprising from the rich Chicago-based Horween, depending on availability, a light brown shade and a black in addition to the classic wine-colored color that is usually associated with Cordovan.

In the spring, Vass also launches a new alternative of calf skin from the Italian tanning Ilcea. It’s about the unique “Radica-skinn” that John Lobb uses and calls for “Museum Calf”. A skin known for its flame effect, which results in the skin being anniline-stained in wet conditions using fungi, giving a unique depth. This leather will come in seven shades and will be in the same price range as the Cordovanian.

Skon’s sole – An important part of the MTO is that you can make any model not only in a specific furnace but also with any sole. Vass uses oak-carved leather soles from John Rendenbach, which is considered to be one of the market’s leading. Here, as a customer, you can choose to have a single or double leather sole but also a so-called HAF sole that lets a double leather sole slip off to a simple waist on the shoe. This combines an elegant design with a more durable alternative. You can also ask a customer for recessed metal or plastic wires to prevent increased wear in the toe part.

Other – In addition to the shoes, there are a number of products such as belts and briefs of the same leather quality as the shoes, but the strongest products are the manufacturer’s customized plus size shoe blocks that help keep the original shape of the shoes. These cost a two-piece version of 30 € extra and in triplicate (something that is usually common with bespoke manufacturers) they are approximately 60 €.

Sizes – Vass uses European sizes such as 42, 43, 44 but also has half size sizes. There are also three different widths E, F and G where F is the default. This allows you to choose as a customer that on the slightly narrower reading U and K you can go down half a size and change from F to G in width.

Prices – Models in Calf, Grain and Suede from the RTW range range between 420-530 € for low shoes and boots. For MTO models, add about 100 €. Cordovan starts at 650 € and the new Radica leather from Ilcea will start at about 520 €.

Vass also has a service called Be-Spoke where you as a customer can visit the store in Budapest and make your feet measure and then adapt any of the existing lessons to your feet. This is not really the same as classically customized since the lessons are not made from the ground for each customer but at the same time costs “only” about 200 € over words. price. This allows you to get hands-on shoes in some of the world’s finest materials tailored to your feet from 620 €.

Laszlo Vass also offers soles on shoes according to the same standards when this may be required at the price of 130-150 € plus shipping.

In order to get an understanding of the options available, take a look at the manufacturer’s website as well as the official Vass thread at Styleforum, where lots of inspiration and models are available.
