Words

I've been gawking at these boots for a while now. To me, most Visvim footwear will probably never be unappealing. Something about the re-appropriation of classic styles with premium materials like this unlined kangaroo hide, combined with innovative production and solid craftsmanship, always piques my interest. The rich brown is perfect and the low profile Moreflex sole means these could easily be that one pair of shoes that you can wear with anything, 5 days a week, without thinking twice about it.

Can they be ordered through Visvim's website (through proxy)? I don't find any pricing.

Piques, not peaks.

Nice, but like most Visvim would be a whole lot nicer without the unpleasant branding. You can find some very similar Dr Martens for about a fifth of the price !

Aside from the laces, these kinda reminds me of the Red Wing heritage work chukkas

These look like overpriced and overbranded version of these:

Sometimes they'll make something nice out of a classic but here it's a worthless re-edition IMO

Red Wing looks too boxy and too much "work wear".

The Red Wing looks too boxy?

I don't see it. They look about the same without regard to the laces.
