Vass split-toe bluchers in dark brown Scotch-grain calf with a reverse welt (Goyser-stitched, in Vass-speak) and rubber lug soles (Norweger model, Budapest last). The picture above is of a Vass Norweger model shoe, but mine are made on a different last with a different leather, different welting, and a different sole. These were purchased to be my New York walking shoes, so I figured that I might as well break them out to work at the fall festival at E&B's school since that would require me to be on my feet all day, walking on concrete. They performed well, although my forefeet felt like they had been pounded on with sledgehammers by the end of the day.
