    Hi! Can anyone help picking right visvim size? I am a US 10 or European 43 in almost every brand. Would you go for the same size in Visvim? Do they different types of Visvim shoes varya lot? Virgil is the type I am most interested in, any experience with this?

    I own a couple FBT's and normally wear a 10.5...I wear a 10 in Visvim (they don't make .5 sizes after 10).
    You should be fine with a 10.

    Virgils run true to size.
    FBTs in my experience run 1/2 a size big.

    I love Visvim, but I don't understand why they're trying to be so mystical, cult like.Why tease us with products only available in Japan selling for fortunes. People with well paid jobs don't have any style anyway..
    But to my question: The isdt kngr boot, does this fit true to size also, like the virgils are supposed to do? I understand they're not possible to purchase from visvim's website, am I right? But I have found a few in my size (10) on Japanese Yahoo Auction. The problem is I don't understand Japanese, the proxy doesn't speak English well and Google Translate only makes it more confusing. Anyway, any experience with these shoes anyone?

    I have to bump this old thread.
    I'm looking for visvim shoes on yahoo auction jp, but can't read Japanese. I wonder how the following shoes' fit is:
    FBT Lhamo/Bear Foot
    Wabanaki boots

    Not the Lhamos... The Bear Foots I don't know, but I wouldn't suspect so. They're all FBT shoot-offs as far as I'm concerned.

    Visvim's fit very different from model to model.

    Laugh if you will, but there's actually a good thread over on Hypebeast that answers the fit of most of the different models. You just kind of have to read past all the bickering and Internet cut-ups.

    For example though, my size 9 FBT's seem to fit a hair larger than my size 10 Shamans.
