Yeah I really liked them both. The RRL one had a nice give and drape to it. I think I prefer the wildflower of the vis rather than the traditional paisley bandana pattern. Probably will come down to if I can find a nice sale later on and/or a good jpy proxy with the advantageous conversion rate right now.
Candidly, I would get whichever one I could get a better deal on. I also find many Visvim tops to be so narrow in the shoulders, but ymmv.

@satch69 I also have narrow feet. My pairs are more than 5 years old, and I don’t know if they’ve adjusted sizing since I bought. So I’d ask them what they recommend. But my pairs are sized down 1, which they recommended: I’m a 9 in vans and on a brannock, and these are 41 Sabahs. They’re soft and unstructured, so width and length are easy to work around.

Looking for good allround sneakers to wear with everything (Pat baggies, jeans, fatigues etc). Seems like all white AF1 '07 lows are a no brainer. What say you?

Can't go wrong with white AF1. The craft ones are supposed to be much better leather quality so it might be worth looking for those.

Personally I'm partial to Vans slip ons. They go with everything you mentioned (see Engineered Garments collab) and I've seen the checkerboard ones look good a bit dressed up with Needles track pants and a button up shirt.

I think Vans Authentic would be another good option.
Also, Officine Generale style almost everything with Asahi sneakers (so very similar to Authentics) and I think it looks good.

I wear GATs with all those but also just picked up a pair of NB 327s in a harlequin colorway, makes a great change from all white sneaks and cheap, too. Looks really good with Baggies.
