im a 42 in margiela and common projects, 9.5 US in quoddy, most nikes.

and is a proxy the most realistic way to get them in the US?
 

level99

im already back in the states. but they are probably all sold out by now unless youre a womens size or gargantuan.

trust n belive, that there was a line of chinamen / hk fobs resellers lined up outside the store on release day. I saw it like 3 times while i was there no joke, and thats not even on virgil release day.

fuuu the two dudes i hoped would post give me different answers.

He can't. Thanks for your concern, though.

because they dont make half-sizes or because im stuck in the US with no hook up?


thanks. i think conceptshop has the ones im looking for.
 

level99

to be clear, i used to wear 9.5 and ownd 2 birgils wit dat and they fit fine, im a eu 43, and us nike size 10.

but on my last 1 i got size 10 cuz i wear w/ chunky socks now.
 

level99

i also add that birgils r the most lightest breathable boot to wear. Ive tried Trickers, Viberg, and a pair of yuketens before (which i promply sold) and they are all very CLUNKY + HEAVY and heavy duty.

Birgils feel like u are walking on a cloud while wearing ballerina shoes. + the shape of boot is slim, but not too gay looking. a perfect balance.

yea ive been debating them for a while now, but i want a pair of boots, and keep coming back to them because of that.

that makes me think a 9 would be better, too.

what size are you in virgils and other shoes, yardsale?

just cuz im not in their target demographic of japanese lumberjacks doesnt mean i dont know bout that bisbim

this season their target audience is the japanese navajo men, that grew up in the navajo nation, but moved back to japan, and all got high paying jobs so they can afford the clothes that their grandma use to weave in the teepee for free.

oh, like a different batch of leather. it looks way darker, but may just be the pictures.

is this the sole youre talking about?

the first ever virgil have a thin vibram layer that glued on at bottom.
but after about 3-4 months customers complaining that the layer starts to peel off and looks very shabby.

so then hiroki changed the sole to that one u posted above, with no thin layer at bottom, but then customer complained that the sole is fugly, esp from the side view like that.

so hiroki contract with vibram to design a custom sole exclusively for virgil boots that looks exactly like the 1st gen sole, but without the shoddy thin layer.

and that is the one u posted in concept shop. notice how the bottom says "Free international laboratory" which is another name for visvim creations.
