Careful. The bison grizzlies with the dainite sole come up small. But otherwise yes.

Anyone have any experience with the Beuys and the sizing please. Thanks.

are you looking for The round cotton ones with brass tips? There was a site that I used to get them, you may have to search this thread as I can’t remember what the site was. But you could customize a decent approximation, though I was never really able to find tips that were distressed like Original vis ones

i.d. and legit check sought. What do you think? Moc toe Virgil? Fake? Any easy way to tell? Thanks in advance, community!

Fake- its a mashup of virgil moc toe and blackstone. Also the stamping ink on the tongue is too picture perfect- very common with the fakes.

Many thanks. Appreciate the input; and my suspicions on this one are confirmed. I will steer well clear. Cheers!

plus the welt stitching is off (iooks like stitched by machine), it should be handtitched so more coarse and irregular

Got it! Thanks. Helpful for this occasion, and generally when looking at pieces in the future. Much appreciated.

Yes, but not sure about the newer models. Definitely the older models- I had a pair way back when since they were cheap, but in a different league than the real deal.

Picked these up. Love them but only thing I hate is the lacing difficulty at the top hooks. Really made only for rounded laces but the flat style gave it a nice, different look imo.

This is all preference but traditionally the speed hooks arent used, the laces are wrapped around the shoe and tied with the speed hooks left open.
