Honeyee interview about the Folk Line. Goes into materials used and design philosophy. Some better pics of the FBT Bearfoot and the Foley. I'd love to see a profile shot of the bearfoot, because the Vibram sole looks so thin head on. That is the aesthetic he's going for, but I'm wondering how these are going to hold up, especially when I imagine the price will be higher than the regular line.

Nice interview, and now to wait for a reply from them.. It's been 5 days since i emailed visvim but still nothing. Wonder if it's cos they have to go through hundreds of mail a day. lol

I can safely say that, being one of the few people on this site to first amp up this brand, I haven't liked a single thing they have come out with for almost a year now........really sad.

Union nyc has the holiday series fbts and kiefers.

in stock as of today.

available by request for good customers only.

not going on display according to the manager.

they were supposed to arrive a month ago, but got shipped by BOAT not by AIR...

other than that, they are just waiting for Elk FBTs and the only stateside shipment of the Folk series. They just found out that they will only be getting the Folk FBT and not any of the other models despite previous promises that they would get other models as well. They dont know when any of the FBTs are going to arrive.

They also had some deadstock Wolfes in black and brown for only $99!

If they're coming to NY they're almost definetly coming to LA then. NY usually has like half the stock of LA.

Not related to S/S08, but has anyone contacted visvim via email before? Heard some pretty good reports about visvim replying and offering A++ customer service for defective fbts or smth.

Its strange cos i sent out an email bout 5 days ago and they haven't got back to me.

is it just 'cause of the hype? if so that is really sad. granted they have pumped out a lot of garbage especially to the States through gline but a year ago would also include (from sketchy memory) everything from s/s07? nomad? bickle? otolina jackets? ancestors + elk gres? all amazing pieces.

the black soph kiefers from this season released in stores around mid january. the metallic soph kiefers might have come out a week earlier than those, and the camo ones came out earliest in late dec or early jan, iirc.

Update Union nyc guy had told me visvim is really stepping up their prices due to manufacturing costs. FOlk series will cost 500 retail at union stores when they get em. He said visvim is moving towards being like DIOR.

Aren't they going to be made in China? If so, how is that stepping up manufacturing costs?

No knock on made in China goods, but if anything prices should go down.

overall the countries the shoes are being produced in is costing visvim more money. plus the US dollar value is going down, and the cost for UNION to carry the shoes has gone up. they dont even make really make profit from carrying the shoes.

Why anyone would want to buy Visvim at European/US prices is beyond me. $500 for a pair? When you can get it from FIL for $360-$380.

Nevertheless, with this price hike, hopefully all the 07 dick riders of Visvim (read that as "my fellow Americans") will fall off board and go back to The Hundreds and 10 Deep.

Lastly who wants to buy Visvim nowadays?...perhaps I'll save that argument for another time.
