Is anyone here pretty knowledgeable about visvim fbt's? There's so many different versions, I'm not sure which one to get and how each differ. Not many stores carry them in US so I can't really try them on. So if you're familiar with them post some info please. Thanks.

I prefer the folk models to the older models style wise. They use softer suede and the overall shoe has better layout IMO
Compared to most nike shoes visvim fbt's fit 0.5 bigger. I am a size 9 in visvim and I am a size 9.5 in most nikes/jordans. Size down 0.5 and you should be alright.

Visvim fbt's usually vary in fabric, the style of the flaps, and the sole
for example
Visvim FBT ancestor Nez Perce

FBT bearfoots (the difference of the bearfoots are their sole)

Visvim FBT shamans (Shamans have their own unique flaps)

FBT elk (self explanatory - elk leather)

FBT lattice (different flaps)

FBT Lhamo folks (They look almost identical to the bearfoots but diff sole)

There are a shit ton more, too many for me to explain 
but yeah as for sizing, Ive only had a couple, not enough for me to help you out with fully

would you guys say fbt's are versatile? I pretty much wear raw denim or khakis with an oxford almost everyday.

I've been trying to get a size 12 since I was like 17. I've seen them before on rakuten (http://global.rakuten.com/en/search?k=VISVIM&tl=558885&f=1), but never in the colors I want.

No offense, but why are visvims so much? I get that they're high quality and all that, but is it really worth $700+?

visvim fbt lhamo (thin sole, not as comfortable as bottom imo)


visvim x unrivaled fbt  (almost as comfortable as flyknit trainers)
i have both of these in a size 11 but i definetly couldve sized down on the unrivaleds .5 maybe even 1, lhamos fit just right. (im a true 10.5-11, for reference)

anyone know how to size on the boots tho? virgils, 7-holes, grizzly, etc?

sorry to be a noob for a minute but could I get some help with identifying these FBTs? found them at a local thrift store for $10. they were made in Korea. wasn't sure if they were legit or not but for their price I couldn't complain haha. 



thanks
