Could anyone provide any insight on how to spot fake grizzly's?

 

Don't want to be spending a heap of money only to find out their fake.

Only fake models thus far have a striped tag at the collar, and I think are suede only.

@Fycus - if Size 10.5 Skagway highs fit me well, but with a fair bit of room (I leave them mostly untied), and a bit of room in the toe, should I go down to a size 10 in the slipons to avoid them falling off my feet?  fwiw, the Virgils in size 10 fit me perfectly.

10 for sure, your skags should probably be 10 as well considering your virgils are 10.

Gonna pull the trigger (first purchase I've really wanted for a bit now).

Ugh. The Perks and Mini store is unusable. I hate designer websites.

Skagway's are goodyear welted right? So they give some heel height over their Converse counterparts? Is the sole still flexible?

Some are, some are not.  All of them have some height over Converse.  The sole on the goodyear welted ones (usually they have the American flag sole), are not as flexible.

skagways run a half size large

I bought a pair of Skagways last year at ICT in Ometesando... they started disintegrating after a month of light wear :-( Now the banding around the midsole has totally split at the stress points and I've had to resort to Shoe Goo to try to hold the soles together.

 

Visvim told me, and this makes me laugh a hollow laugh, that " the degree and nature of wear you are experiencing on the heels of your SKAGWAY sneakers is normal and expected with this shoe model" ... Would be interested to hear how yours hold up!

Dat wabi-sabi tho

I dont think thats much more than the shoe its self not matching the way you may walk.  I personally wont buy drivers due to my experience with a pair where I shredded the toe within a handful of wears.  That same shoe was bought by my friend and his were spotless.  I think the design of the shoe can be a bad match for a persons stride, flat or arched foot and etc.  

 

Another thing is how my car wont get any scratches on its rims when i drive it but when my wife does, not so lucky.
