Anyone else find the FKTs really uncomfortable to walk in because of the angled heel? It might just be the way my foot pronates making all my weight come down on one corner of the sole.

On the other I hand I love the Corda Folks which I just got.

I think the TWO really depends on the shape of your feet. If you have pretty normal feet than TTS works, but if your foot often has a tight instep (e.g. I always size up from 41 to 42 for my MMM GAT) then going up a half size makes sense.

I'm a TTS 8.5 and wear a 9 in the TWO.

Personally I think most of the Visvim boots fit pretty TTS.

What was visvim thinking with the bulb at the heel of the wallace deck folk. There's only a tiny wedge of lug, which would probably wear through after less than a year. After paying 1k for a shoe, the last thing I want to do is send off to Japan, pay 400 for a round trip around the world just for a resole. Ridiculous. They shouldve just used a regular vibram lug, and incorporated their signature heelcup. That would allow easy vibram lug replacement since its not custom, and wouldnt make the shoe look so back heavy.

It's on YJP too. If you get zenmarket.jp to buy or similar, they could do additional photos on arrival at their warehouse for you?
Is there any recourse if you get the photos and it turns out to be fake? In the US PayPal is pretty good about siding with the buyer in an authenticity dispute like this, but I'm not sure how the Japanese marketplaces/auctions (Mercari, Rakuma, YJP) work in this regard.

I have no idea. You could email Zenmarket and ask? Not sure tbh.

In my top3 rotation ( 1/2 up from most / 1/2 down from Roland ) all are good except the mustard ones. Had to do cork-insole surgery to decrease that heel angle and lower instep. Also, the VS version most accommodating imo.
