Visvim SS12

Recommended Posts

True to size but a bit on the small side. Made to wear with no socks, but the leather is very forgiving.

I got them haha. For about $455 usd. Couldn't pass on such a low price.

there's a reason why they're so low.

I just checked all through mine, and could not find a stamp or anything stating where they were made. I'm assuming china though.

thanks man, appreciate it as always. if I go half size up would it be too loose though?

I think the grizzlys are made in china, yeh. visvim footwears are all now made in china i guess, it's rare to see those 'made in koreas' anymore too.

Nah you'll be fine, just don't wear them everyday. I went up a whole size on my first pair, and I'm a month or so they stretched like crazy, wearing them everyday. This was also in 2008 when they were still made with elk leather.

ok, here we go. grizzly vs virgil comparison pictures. both size 11. sorry that neither of these are actually from ss12, but since this thread is the most active i figured it would help out the most. for those of you that don't know, the virgils fit pretty true to size, a bit narrow. I'm a true 11D and they fit like a glove. the grizzlies are quite a bit bigger.

Akuma you may know more about this but am hearing the Noragi luxsic maybe only comes in sizes 1 & 2 - anybody got info on that?

Also anybody got any pics other than the vsvm site of the yojimbo ??

It may, they've been getting weird about bigger sizing. But if the linen noragi fits anything like the sanjuro then it's very generously sized. I'd wait for it to come out then get someone to go take measurements, or wait for on on YJP.

Cool man thanks. Stephen @ SS has been told these Noragi's fit fairly small ( like the AW Lhamo's) and the Humanbehaviour figures confirm this. Just seems strange they're not doing an L (size 3). Guess will have to wait and see.

Saphir reno'mat first to get all old oils and gunk off. I've done this now 3 times, as more stuff keeps coming off, I used to use mink oil from redwing, and I didn't realize how bad it is for them. After that I applied the dubbin to the vamp and the sides of the boots. After that's dry I'm going to apply the renovateur lotion, give them a good brushing, and let them dry for a day. So it'll probably be Saturday or so until they're finished, the dubbin takes 3 days to dry.

Same here man, I asked guys at FIL about the saphir products, and it's perfectly ok to use on any of their leather.

where to buy griz?

Gris moc folk or grizzly mid folk? Big price difference there.

@funky they do a shearling one every year. Also a sheepskin lined one.

@jig depending on your size there are a few up on YJP. Will run you at least $1,300 USD. Shit, there was a pair of 11's on YJP that ended for $1,700

Thanks Akuma - but actually I'm more concern with what you would use on the vibram outer white soles to get them clean? I personally use obenauf leather heavy duty LP on the leather uppers and it's great. Even though the leather gets slightly darker, it gives them good protection (i.e resist scuffing and repels water) especially good for the NYC elements - I have done my aged kanagoos 2 times (1st when purchased then then just recently I went back over them.

I would normally use a clorox wipe for the white sneaker soles followed by some water just to stop the bleaching but don't want to make them yellow. So if you have any tips there, please share - looking forward to the pics

I'm just using the saphir reno'mat with a towel on the soles.

obenaufs is cool and all, but thats more for like, heavy leather, not exotic leather. you'd be surprised at the difference in leather products.
