As if the FBT and CHRISTO weren’t eye-catching enough already, Hiroki Nakamura and company have gone ahead and given the two silhouettes bold leopard-spotted makeovers for Spring/Summer 2017. In both cases, visvim‘s moc-style sneaker and strapped slides make use of Italian vegetable-tanned goat leather, which comes covered with a leopard-spotted motif throughout. Joining the premium uppers are the usual Vibram sole units, as well as details like vegetable-tanned cow leather lining, a natural cork footbed (for the FBT), and an EVA Phylon midsole (for the CHRISTO).

Retailing for ¥68,000 JPY (approximately $606 USD) and ¥52,000 (approximately $463 USD), respectively, the FBT and CHRISTO are available now via visvim’s Japanese web store.
