nothing particularly imaginative tbh
all a little bit "just stick a vibram on it"

Just got to remember who put a vibram unit on a pair first Eye-wink

can't remember who it was that was debating with fonty, but seeing these collaborations with technic, from 1991 and 1997 respectively, i'd ere on the side of the bureau

yeah i know, but this evidence of them collaborating with northampton shoe makers as far back as then is enough to sway me into thinking the poster going against fonty might be correct.. that is until something more concrete can be produced to back up the claim for present.
a good chin scratcher this

Isn't Beam Font's brother who works for present who's definitely not saying it was the bureau?

If you buy a standard Grenson without a vibram sole they can swap it for you. As all Grensons are Goodyear welted they can swap the soles on most of their shoes. Haven't tried it myself but heard it's around £25 for them to do it

I guess you probably know this, but superdenim twitter message earlier today :
"VIBERG has now landed at Superdenim HQ. All pre-orders and subsequent orders will now ship without delay"
