Red Brogues by VASS

I really love seeing red leather because it looks so nice in pictures, particularly when it gives you the impression of being subtle even though it is a bold red. Thats the impression that these beauties give me. They dont scream out at you like one might perceive if you said my red brogues, but rather maintain an air of simplistic elegance about them even though red is a color that would be described as anything but subtle or simplistic. Thats why I love seeing all the stuff that VASS does, same as Saint Crispins, because more likely than not what you see is going to be something that no one else is doing. Storm welted red brogues….who the heck else is doing those? NO ONE!! And that is what I love, because it is too easy to do things that are simple and dont take any thought. But daring to do things that take ones imagination to perceive it as it has never been done before is what I respect….(or at least not shown on the web – not accounting for bespoke, which we dont all see). Either way, this is a beautiful shoe and I hope that the owner rocks them hard!

  1. The Vass brogues are super in colour, and that storm welt ( norwegian? ) is just the ticket for the wet winters of England, both urban pavement to wet moorland!

  2. Looks quite like a favourite pair of mine fr.o.m. maledetti Toscana. Tremendously usefull, especially to jeans och Green trousers

    1. These were MTO – as are the bulk of shoes sold by Vass. They list only their ‘standard’ models on their web site, but there is a truly vast range of possibilities beyond those.
