We need approximately 6-7 weeks to make a pair of shoes to your specification. You can place your order personally in one of our Budapest stores or by contacting us in an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the shoes are ready for delivery, you can pick them up in Budapest or we are pleased to send them to your home or office by FedEx. We ship worldwide.
If you want to place an order, all you have to do is to let us know what design you are looking for and the details of your order: your size, colour and leather preferences, choice of sole, etc. Browse our website or have a look at our Instagram page for more inspiration.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us in person or by e-mail.
The first and most important thing to know is your shoe size. We offer shoes in whole and half sizes, from size 39 to 47. You are always welcome in our stores to find the correct size but if it is not possible, please e-mail us and let us know the size you usually wear (you can also refer to the size you wear by other makers). Please inform us if you need any adjustments on regular last, eg. some extra space for your pinky toe or a bit lower instep. It is possible to carry out some of these basic modifications in case of a Made-to-Order pair of shoes.
Each shoemaker works with his own lasts – we use 9 different, self-developed last shapes. They have been tested and improved for many years, based on our own experiences and our customers’ needs. Each last has its own character that defines them from the traditional to the contemporary.
Sleek or brogued design? Cap-toe or wingtip? Lace-up or monk? Whatever you are looking for, you can choose from a wide selection of Vass shoe models. If you are uncertain in your choice, please ask our highly skilled staff for advice.
Colour and leather
We offer several types of high quality leather selection for your handmade shoes: calfskin (boxcalf or museum calf) sourced from the best French and Italian tanneries, the versatile suede and scotchgrain for your casual outfit, elegant Horween cordovan shells and some special, exotic skins like cayman, alligator, ostrich.
When you place an order please do not forget to think about the sole of your shoes. We exclusively work with Joh. Rendenbach oak-bark ground tanned leather soles and heels. You can choose them prepared as single or double soles with normal or bevelled waist. As an addition you can ask for rubber protection sole or metal toe tips to be built into the soles.
We offer shoes made with Vibram or Dainite rubber soles in case you wear your shoes also in rainy, wintery conditons.
Payment and Shipping
We accept credit cards or cash in our stores or if you order online you can pay through a secure online payment system by card (in Euro). We exclusively ship the shoes by FedEx. We will notify you about the delivery date of your MTO shoes by e-mail or phone and you will also receive the parcel’s FedEx tracking number.
Please note that MTO orders and Sales items are non-returnable and non-exchangable.
