If I had to find a fault, and this has been there in all except for a couple of models, it's that it doesn't seem that they know what to do where the welt meets the heel stabilizer, and the leather is just "cut, and not even glued into place. I don't knof If I would have a solution, of course, The stabilizer, which was always something that drew me to Visvim, is completely useless (as it is in all the footwear I have of theirs that are not sneakers, but it does look cool. At least it'st not as stupidly non-functional as it is on their soft mocs that don't even have a proper heel cup. Even so, it seems nearly entirely decorative.
It occurs to me that I'd like to see Visvim and Hender scheme do something together. But, it would be like, Visvim materials on Hender Scheme designs, since the materials used in Hender Schemes are pretty stupidly bad for the price. I would also love to see something like the Skayways done in a undyed leather, but not the stuff that Hender Scheme uses (For the record. I love wearing my Hender Schemes, and I find the concept really clever, but there are design flaws that are connected to the leather they use, and the seeming lack of understanding that woven synthetics typically can be made to have better tensile and tear strength than leather of the same thickness, no matter the animal.
