For clarity, it fits like the Iris Liner or Iris Liner Jkt?
Slightly roomier than the old liner - way more fitted than jkt. Assuming there's this ( Liner Jkt. ) and Jkt.
Recall the Jkt fitting very roomy, especially the sleeves. This is nothing like that.

Zephyr's are amazing irl, but, as I said to @Retlas, I think they are wearing me. Less Visvim, more Rick Owens. Let me know what you think but I will likely back them. Definitely 0.5 small in toebox too. I backed the black lambskin Virgils too as I think, other than the leather, they are not making me think... o_O

Love those, in particular the white colorway but I'm so over the vulcanized sole they use on those and the g.patten. Mine are already falling apart- total joke.

Adhesion between layers is ass- the fabric impregnated rubber strips fall apart, not sure why they keep doing that. Even vans last longer in my experience.

The part I've had go is the heel counter. The rubber/plastic has snapped and completely lost its shape on one pair of skagways I have.

You would think Vis had a few employees wear the design for 6-12 months to see how it holds up before releasing it. I’ve seen several instances of G patterns falling apart. Yet they are still pumping them out for SS23 lol.

All their skgways construction has been the same for 10+ years, falling apart within months and nothing being improved. Converse will last you longer.

New skags never last.

I know it's not a 1:1 comparison but I own drkshdw Ramones that look almost new after 6 years of wear and low maintenance. I know cup sole vs / taped sole, but how they can't figure it out with 1k sneakers is mind boggling

I saw on another forum that cons do a custom sole with a g. pattern style sole. Will find a pic, but is an option I guess.
