The Perfect Brown Full-Brogue?

I have always loved and admired the last shapes of Laszlo Vass (the more elongated ones). I might even be so bold to say that one of his lasts just might be my favorite of all time (pictured below just to kill your curiosity, which I think just might be the same as the one above?…..). And one of my big regrets is that I never managed to get a pair, and in reality just might actually never do so at this point. But as sad as that is, like the heartache of a breakup, I still find myself drawn to his shoes and wanting to sing praises of them. Not only was he a lovely gentleman who deserves kind words to be said about him, but more importantly, he makes beautiful works of art, like this brown full brogue above, that are so perfect that if they were any more perfect, it would be blasphemy! So I pose the question bearing this shoe in mind, representing a perfect pattern, a perfect last shape and a perfect color: Is this the perfect brown brogue? Well, I sure think so……good thing that I don’t have one in my collection, or that statement just might make me feel bad about it
