I hadn’t worn mine for a long time until recently, I wore them at the weekend and I actually really like them again

Why bother making fakes of that standard when it's not even imitating a product release? AFAIK vis have never done 73 boots in black suede like that - although they probably should cause those look quite cool!

Heels look abit fucked.

Can see one has a stitched mastermind japan label. Which if they were would make sense that they have the wrong riri zipper

Don’t think the leather size tag usually says “made in China” though think they are made in China.

The listing says “replica”.

Side webbing looks wrong, heel suede is much bigger, not sure if they have suede trim on tongues.

Maybe Saltz was selling a legit pr on here a while back?

(only thing on here that doesn't look right is the size label… i.e. having those 2 red lines on it
