above is retail msrp. above is price in yen. so $309.07, $377.75, $389.20, $331.97. so apply your local tax rate if you plan to purchase at a visvim wholesaler, aka bodega and such.....

so a 5% sales tax on japanese items from what i googled.
$324.52(8L), $396.64(20L), $408.66(22L), $348.57(18L)

These are prices minus shipping, and this is assuming the person getting them is doing it for free out of kindness of their heart. If the person getting item for you is trustworthy, gift option to avoid paypal fee as well.

where would I be able to cop fbt's from?

???
or ancestors

Good source at the moment is head-porter.org, they seem to have the best prices and pretty good selections, but sell out VERY FAST as they are "cheap". i say best prices because this is in relation to their bags prices against others around the web for brand new merchandise.

can some one help me with sizing issues, i have a pair of cowans size 12 , and my true size is a 13 , and i really wanna get a pair of fbt's but ive seen they run pretty big so i was wondering i can fit. i wear size 12-13, and the cowans feel a lil lose fiting but would i wear like a 10-11 in the fbt's.

please some one let me know thanks all smokeyface


cop size 12, from what ive heard and seen, 13 in visvim is all but impossible. and the 12 run big like people said, or worst case, insole out or you must resell. or barefoot without sock.

^Thanks for the details. Much appreciated.

yeah visvim doesnt make size 13, but if you are a natural 13 you will be fine with 12's and can even take out the top insole for addition room (this is what i do and it works perfectly)

yeah head-porter.org has the most reasonable reseller price in HK (compared to other HK resell shops that get their product from Japan), never bought from them online, just use their site as a reference...

true,

FBT Classics = 1/2 size bigger

FBT Folk series = 1/2 size smaller (note: buy your true to size, even tho they will feel VERY snug the whole purpose of that sizing is so that the leather will naturally stretch to your true feet size with wear and fit accordingly)

Keifers = 1 size bigger

Gabo = 1 size bigger (same sole construction as Keifers)

umm what else is there to mention...?
November 07, 2009 @ 14:19:19
hockneys, virgil boots, serras, mowats etc
November 07, 2009 @ 21:13:51

I wear FBTs in my real size, as I wear them with socks and they fit nice.

so safe to buy or no?
November 22, 2009 @ 03:40:38
Yeah i'd say so, stitching looks fine where as fakes look terrible which makes the leather looks fucked - these are just a little beat but a good clean should make them all good.

Never seen em before.

Question: Anyone ever ordered visvim from ransom shop? Stocked good stuff wondering if anyones ever dealt with them?
November 22, 2009 @ 21:22:43
November 22, 2009 @ 21:54:54
^^^ have to agree, seem to be legit but they're fucking ugly. There's a store here that's had the NBHD version sitting here for more than a year.

Oh and fuck Ransom shop, their prices are ridiculous.

whats the cheapest proxy service for yahoo jp?
November 23, 2009 @ 08:23:03
You can actually order from the English-side of Rakuten and don't need to worry about proxies. Decent selection of Vis.
