    If you check out the top of page 168 of this thread @g transistor did a great job of creating a Visvim footwear fit matrix. It shows a bunch of members preferred fit across multiple Visvim models and other brands as well, that should give you a good idea.

    if you are a 13, a 12 Grizzly won't fit you. I am a 12.5, and the 12 is just fine for me.

    cool, good to know... had a couple friends w/ grizzly's who said to go whole size down.
    sucks not being able to buy vis footwear... hopefully some day they wake up and meet the demand for all the 13's.

    For me, the Grizzly Folk fitted a size larger.

    Can anyone provide sizing guidance for the Foley hi-Folk? Searched the thread, but could not find what I was looking for.

    If I am TTS (brannock sizing) in Skagway and the FW18 Virgils (Kangaroo), how do the Foley hi-Folk compare?

    Just getting into Visvim so apologies for the newbie question.

    Has anyone got experience with Kiefer's and how they fit? Similar to Skagway's/ Chucks or would this be dependant on the version?

    Just wanted to say that Erik is legit. As far as bang for the buck goes, he gets the job done, quickly, and at a very reasonable price. If you want the best possible resole goes, you can try Firm Shoe Repair in the east village and will pay accordingly. But I back Erik Shoe Repair and use him for 90% of my shoe repair work.

    Nice I'll check him out, I actually live really close to Erik. Do you know what type of selection of vibram soles Erik or Firm Shoe Repair have or if I can bring them my own soles? I want to find a sole that close to the OG sole on the KNGR Virgils vs having to switch to a Christy. I don't want my boots looking like Red Wings lol.

    If you want a more faithful sole replacement, head to Firm. Erik's selection is limited - he does great work with what he has, but it sounds like you're gonna want something beyond what he can offer. If you source the sole and bring it to him, he'll knock it out of the park but I doubt he has exactly what you're looking for to be frank.

    Anyone handle the bison Grizzly from last season?

    [​IMG]

    Are they nice and fit the same as old grizzly? Thinking about selling my old pair and picking this one up.

    I have them and they're amazing. True to size with a roomy toe. Side zip is key. They have camel and navy available at a good price on superdenim.
