Visvim F/W/S 2006-2007

Recommended Posts

what the hell are you guys talking about, ancestors ARE FBT, just like coyote and shaman

They are indeed different my friend. They have a completely different-shaped sole which has alot more of a drastic 'slant' downward and is alot more 'sporty.' I personally was not a huge fan, but they were certainly not the same as FBTs, etc. I guess it is hard to see from the catalogue pics.

of course i know the different outsole they're using, but it's clearly referred as "FBT ancestor" on the online catalog i have. i wish i can show you the screen capture. you can see the shoebox itself saying "FBT ANCESTOR"

I believe you. I thought that you just meant that they were exactly the same shoes as Shamans, etc. only with a smaller flap.

it's good that they stopped making FBTs.

they made enough time to move on although FBT anchestors build on the same mocassin design.

i want them to bring back the koonig but i'm fine with them not bringing back. if you slept then you just gotta hunt for it.

i'm still looking for a pair of white elk FBTs. those things are insane!!!!!!!!!!

I've got a pair of DS White Kooning Elks in size 10. Let me know if you want them.

Does anyone know what the ancestors look like with the ankle flap up? I've got a pair of shamans and fancied another, but I'm not too keen on this new version with the short ankle flap, especially if it's not removable.

I know that man. The full name of the shoe is the FBT Ancestor. All I'm saying is that I'm not feeling the new design. I'm not quite as dumb as I look.

Also a (sort of) sneak peak at the 2007 s/s from edc's blog:

Any recent updates on the latest backpacks? Since the first post, I've seen nothing here or elsewhere about updated ballistic/hypatex.

I'll be in Tokyo for the last week of this year...hopefully Visvim have not abandoned backpacks and that I'll be able to pick one up at F.I.L.

Anyone comment on the use of their backpacks to carry a laptop (just bought a MacBook)?

Thanks rirawin...I've got a 13" MacBook. Does it have a special compartment/pouch built in or do you just throw it in and let it slide?

I seem to remember you saying how much you love the cordu. I should've bought the hypatex with that funky cloth bottom from the SF member a while ago...quite a discount.
