That's easy, I didn't drop more than $1k on them lol

I paid very close to $1k with shipping once I factored in the exchange rate but Yom didn't rape me with proxy fees and got them considerably cheaper than what other proxies and resellers were charging. I've basically been wanting them for ages, always on the hunt for a pair of 12s and the opportunity came up - couldn't pass. I wouldn't say that they aren't durable as other boots; leather around the ankle area is a bit soft but apart from that I think they'd hold up pretty bloody well.

Anyway it's called fashion, might not always be the most practical item but we all buy things for the aesthetic value.


back pack is a go thanks to this ^^^

EDIT: My Nike Zizo M-65 just came up, pretty pleased with it especially how it comes with an insulator. Will do until I can cop a Nomad although solely saving up for the Number (n)ine one.

i like the studs it has that cowboy kinda vibe and then it is a moc, so it is a cool play on culture in the west in the 1800's

and if they were less than 50,000 yen i might buy them

yeah i sized down.

i have a pair of decks, im a 13us in nike, i have the 12 in visvim americana deck from 07 i think it was.. the first release.. i cant remember now could be 06.. but i sized down (as with all of them)

i would say if you were a 12 youd still be fine, but as a 13 i found the 12 perfect.

unless the recent rerelease is a bit more true to size im not sure.

going by your situation, 9.5 would size down to 8.5..

remember vis use premium materials, so a little give in the material is going to help you stretch it and get that patina too.. dont go TOO tight to the point of discomfort tho.. but yeah, id want the leather to sit tight and mould to my foot shape, rather than my foot flop around.

wow pretty cool fbt. that's should be visvim first attempt at using studs right? sadly, those aren't from the folk line, judging from the soles.

xdrift sounds like you're talking about regular hockney's. the folk line came out in 08SS. i'm a 10.5 in nike's and both my americana deck folks are 11.

actually ive had both hocks and decks.

both in a 12 and both were perfect, and im a nike 13 (for comparison)

and yes youre correct 2008 seems more like it. excuse my error above. it seems like so long ago now, being 2011..

but yes the 12 is perfect for me, full size down, no socks

i still suggest anyone buying any vis to try on prior. otherwise its just too risky.
