*** Visvim thread: Dissertation on a Japanese Holy Spirit *** - Page 71
Wearing my Visvim Virgils today. The only thing that would make these better is a side zip. Last year, I got, instead of the Virgils, the Sophnet 7 hole side zips. While those are cool, they have structural flaws (like, the flimsiest toebox of all time) and a simple single stitchdown construction. A liltle less expensive than Visvim, but honestly, not that much less. These things are much nicer. And while I love my Vibergs also, these are much lighter, and for all day wear, more comfortable for that reason. They only knock is that they are not as sturdy as Vibergs, by a country mile, but if you are not on the fireline or doing construction or on a factory floor, you are going to be just fine.
I'm a maximalist, and have dozens of boots from dozens of companies. None of them are perfect, but I like a lot of them. I've always like the Virgil, and some of the stuff I really like I also hate, like the TPU counter, which looks super cool, but also seems clumsily integrated with the welt.
I've always wondered, how is it actually integrated into the boot? Is it just glued on or whatever? It's really hard to find any info on TPU stuff.
Virgils are great, good to hear you picked them up. I've gotta get mine resoled and cleaned. The polish I had didn't end up working so well...
Looking to pick up some Hilts or Brigs next. Would love a pair of brig highs. There are so many footwear choices I want from Vis. Just wish sizing was more consistent
No bricks and mortar address listed, broken English under shipping instructions, massive product range including almost impossible to find pieces...
Why would anybody be at all suspicious that this could be a classic fake goods site?
It is a cool name though.
