    I didn't know Visvim started manufacturing their shoes in Japan. They look super comfortable!

    Of all the stuff I've seen on this forum, Visvim shoes are the one thing that I'm at a loss for. How they sell those with ease at such prices is beyond me. They do look really comfy though, and well made.

    Agreed, shoes look great and I'm sure are comfortable, but could never justify the price on them.

    I dont ever want to take them off been wearing them around my house since they arrived. I bet the slippers they came out with are fantastic. [​IMG]

    Yea, I also dont understand how they sell like they do. I personally been trying to get ahold of a pair for over a year you would think $600 shoes that are not even versatile for 90% of people wouldnt be that hard to buy if you wanted them.

    That's a very nice bike. I prefer Suzuki Hayabusa though.

    ME TOO. :slayer:

    P.S. The seller (Villy Nonales) who is apparently a scammer on superfuture and as a result made me nervous as hell came through! I'm not sure about the details of that case but in my experience he was legit. Fast shipping and excellent packaging. This was purchased on grailed. They really need a feedback system!

    bought some uniqlo slim fit OCBDs because I love wearing oxfords but my non slim fit uniqlos are all too baggy and i'm too much of a cheap ass to buy plain colored gitmans. also bought more uniqlo socks to get free shipping.

    I felt like I needed some smarter shoes instead of sneakers, and good some pretty good deals on these. I'm pretty happy with them if slightly worried about the synthetic soles on the CPs. The boots feel great but the Butteros might be half a size too big. I really like them though, and will try an insole to try to finalize the fit. I'm on the fence about keeping the derbies.

    What size are Derby's?
    I've been trying to find the high shine or cadet derby's on sale in a 44, as well as the training boots, all in black or burgundy (assuming they fit the same as achilles). If they are a 44 and you decide to part with them I'd be interested.

    They actually happen to be 44, but fit a bit bigger. I'm UK 10 in sneakers and these fit me just fine. It's actually funny, because I thought I ordered 43 on both CPs, and got ones that seem to fit me better. Got them at zalando-lounge.com. They do these runs with maybe 5 in each size with discount prices. I guess the guys in nordic countries don't go crazy about shoes so much, since I've usually been able to get what I want pretty easy. I'm in Finland, so I don't know how much shipping them would add to the price if I decided to let them go.
