Shoes Of The Week – Laszlo Vass MTO Spectators

I absolutely love a nice spectator (co-respondent), and this my friends, is among the nicest that I have seen to this day. It doesn’t surprise me either, as most of what I see coming out of the workshops of legendary Laszlo Vass, is nothing shy of spectacular. Having inspired a reader with another model presented on the blog, he went out and found someone who could produce exactly what he was looking for, and the outcome was these, something I am sure that the reader was very pleased with….as I sure know that I would be!! Black and gray, as paired colors, is such a lovely mix to me. Not only does it keep the elegance of the black (being dressy), but it also separates it from being too muted (as I feel black shoes generally are). For me, this shoe would be something that I would love to see at a black-tie event. Call me crazy, but this to me is elegance. Sure, you may find it flashy, but how lovely would these be with a nice black-tie suit, with some gray accents in the tie/shirt region? Maybe I am just strange….but this to me is the way the world should be….not so stuffy as it is now!


  • yeah nice, whats vass price like and his work, do you know many hungarian shoemakers

  • Superchick – Don’t know his MTO prices, RTW is around +400 euros. The only other Hungarian maker that I know is Marcell from Koronya.


  • Very good post Justin – admire your passion and expertise on the field, a true SME (subject matter expert)

    Keep up the good posts.
