Enquirered with visvim recently about resoling my 2013 kngr virgils was asked for my receipt which luckily I had before confirming they would accept for repair. Need shipped to Hong Kong and cost was HK$1500 excluding shipping so definitely an expensive repair.

hello - i have some battered kngr virgils, about 5 or 6 years old, need some new ones. Lost the box years ago, bought them new off someone here and i don't seem to have the PMs anymore. How can I find out what size they are? looked in side the boot and no tags with size info. thanks

For Goodyear welts any decent cobbler will be able to do it, can't see the need to send back to vis at that cost. Interesting tho as if they have to go
To Hong Kong I guess they are taking them back to the factory

Only reason I'd faintly consider taking the hit is I really like the propriety vibram sole they have with cross pattern which I've hunted for and can't find, only other option would using a Dr Sole replacement. Not sure it's the factory their being returned to, their email called it the "visvim service centre"

That's just a vibram sheet cemented to EVA though isn't it? I'm sure that vibram place in London could get it. The factory visvim use is in southern China, not far from Hong Kong

SOme of the pairs that I saw resoled by Visvim had the very basic Vibram soles, not the customed ones, did they confirm which one you will get ? Vis factory is located in Dongguan, not too far from HK indeed.

Emixam - strangely they didn't confirm if they would replace like with like. Eek

Dee - can I ask did vibram replace the mid on your virgils as well as the outer sole?

Could be way off but I think it's either the 2070 glued to an EVA wedge or the 2021.
