I doubt anyone with even a little bit of sense would bother with Colette prices. There are plenty of Japan proxies out there - 555 Euros is insane.

Kiya, please posts pics when you receive them, would love to see Maliseet's worn.

Maliseets looked good to begin with but for some reason the more I saw them, the less appealing they became.

Agreed. Saw a bunch on Yahoo Auctions without the good lighting and without shape. Made them look like household slippers. :(

Maybe they look different with a foot in them. It's like the Bearfoot Shaman... if you don't have a foot in there, it looks ridiculous cause the shoes curl up like elf shoes.

I 2nd that. The maliseets are beautiful shoes..wish there was a lookbook or a magazine photoshoot so we can get an idea of how they look worn.

I just ordered the Gabo in black and hope to get them in a few days.

^ They are beautiful shoes, but their longevity is nil with that sole.

It looks that way. But then again, the Shaman/Bearfoot folk shoes have thin soles too. I have no idea what the soles are made of on the Maliseets.

that's probably why they are pushing their resoling services...

You try and see the Maliseets in person and you'll see what i mean. The other mentioned style of show, particularly the sole in this case, are different constructions, different materials.

They are only doing this with the Foley Folk, well in terms of pushing a re-soling service. This can only be done through their store in Tokyo.

Can anyone shed some light on where to source Visvims online that doesn't involve a ludicrous Colette markup? Finding anything in a US11 is proving to be quite difficult...

Does anyone know if there are any NY stockists anymore? It doesn't look like there is...

You'll need a japanese based proxy buyer.

Who did you use to buy each pair and how much did they cost you? If you don't mind answering...

What's the story on the Visvim Perfecto? Anything particularly special about it apart from the vintage effect?

They had Gabos at Union NY, not sure if they're still there though.

I dunno either, I saw it in some current magazine so its definitely FW09.. it's a classic belted Perfecto with Riris all over it, but it looks beaten to death ..
