sorry if this had been asked, but someone had once told me that the visvim backpacks they sell at shops like huf, etc in the united states are different than the ones you can find in japan. is this true?

^yes, because visvim stockists in north america only get the g.line (global line) products.

Most of the time, the colors are the main difference. G-line products are usually more colorful and bright compared to the simple/classic tones used on the Japanese line. The styles for the most part stay the same, but some will argue that the quality slightly drops on the G-line. I personally think the quality is on par with the Japanese products. However, there are Visvim lines like the Folk series that are higher quality and are exclusive to the Visvim F.I.L. shops. I hope that helps.

what are you guys talking about..
quality differences are not an issue between g-line and regular line products.
and it's also not true that north american shops only get g-line, though most shops do. you can find non g-line products at union (more likely to find them @ union LA though)
supreme_bape: g-line is not restricted to north america, it is global-line

and sole you might be fucked tbh.. I think the shakers run true to size
all of my fbt's are true to size
edit: &roughan yeah those new ones are going around that price

The insoles don't come out of most of the shoes, like the FBT's, so I don't think you're going to be able to fit. Bigfoot.

Not a lot cheaper, but they're slightly less here:
head-porter.org/visvim.html

Also, I have a used pair of FBT's in size 9 for sale/trade. I would prefer to trade though. I need size 8!

daaaamn, seeing you guys say how comfortable the FBTs are makes me really want a pair, makes me really regret passing on them when I was in Japan, they were only 28,000yen (around 280USD) for a pair of patent leather FBTs that I like...

Anyone here familiar with raw fluxus 01 sizing?
Do they shrink much, run true to size?

Noticed 32w x 32l is the smallest size outside japan but the smallest they do in japan is 30w x30l.

dunno who rich is? some guy off sufu. got them last week, they fit ok i guess. they're a pain in the ass to get on but snug and comfy as fuck when i'm wearing them. probably keeping, but if i sell i'll contact you.

i think they said they had some size 9s left and some other sizes.

they were only 280 though


size 9s of what models? if they have any size 9 fbt's left, i'm grabbing on friday...
