Visvim F/W 08.09

Recommended Posts

i'm guessing because they're too similar to the lhamo folks and at that price point it'd be too tough to move them. to be honest the cost of proxying from japan on that kind of thing isn't too much higher than what union ends up charging.

That makes lots of sense. The usual Visvim buyers would be picking and choosing smarter nowadays with the rising costs of the shoe and the falling dollar.

I don't really think it makes sense for Union to not carry the Shaman-Folks because I know that the Lhamo's sold out with the quickness in larger sizes in pretty much every color. I guess I will just have to proxy a pair or pay rape prices from plainflour...

i'd be surprised if union ordered more than one per size in each color for most (if not all) sizes. next time i'm in nyc i'll ask about the shaman's, nyc buys differently as opposed to la

plainflour's prices on the lhamos were 500 + shipping which isn't too far off from union retail (nyc i think was 498 + tax). actually i think you can still buy them from him which shows how low demand was for these

good point, you got the shoes you wanted.

I want those bad, I tried on a pair at Union NY but they only had a 9 when I was there and I need a 10. They definitely don't feel like shoes...

in canada we pay 450+tax for G-line FBTs, and our tax is 13% in Toronto.. so consider those a deal =)

no they dont. they feel like nothing... theyre so light and soft you almost forget your wearing $500 shoes. but i guess that is exactly what makes them $500 shoes.

cream - Great pickup, making me want them even more now. I thought I liked the lhamo's more but those pics make the shamans look real nice. I was so sad when plainflour sold his sz.11, guess it is time to get a proxy.

fallen angles - the Americana Decks are FIL exclusive, I'm pretty sure they are sold out of all larger sizes there as well though.

you got hit at the higher tax rate which is no longer in effect since the city waived their share of the 8.375%

caveat emptor indeed

this thread will inevitably end up in shopper so why be fussed?

yeah it was like a 10% tax after i did the calculations. anyway, i went back today and bought some logan lo canvas cause the dude told me he'd hook it up if i bough two pairs... the logan los came out to #230 total... pretty good deal. they also had some of the f/w peices in. flannels, button ups, fluxus, etc. and yeah, the the new F/W items are now fore sale, so people are gonna start "chatting" any time now.

Supply in australia has the americana decks and the fbt shamans in all colors, they are 499 Aus which is like 450 Canadian I think, maybe even less in US.

Worth checking out if you want em, they also have flannels and more cut n sew.
