It's pretty easy to replace a zip. Just need to try and find the same one or similar

Apologies as I know this has probably been asked many times before but I'm considering proxying a deckhand. As I'm 5'6 and 20" p2p (basically a stocky shortarse!) should I be going for a medium or will it be too long for me?

Hey guys, I have a question on Sizing for a pair a 13ss Kngr Virgils, I wear a size 9.5-10us in most nikes, jordans, flyknits..etc. How would a size 10 in the Virgils fit? Thanks

probably a touch on the big side. Usually go down half a size from Nikes

I thought it was all agreed that visvim is "built to last" and has far superior build quality to anything on the market?

it is built to last and of the highest quality. except that one issue^

oh, and laces that snap on the first wear, and the leather tab that falls off in the wash on your jeans, snap buttons coming off, taped seams coming undone, fbt's and folk hockneys laceholes breaking, stitching on jeans coming undone, virgil soles splitting after a week, leather jacket cuffs that you have to roll up because they're poorly structured and the backpacks which fall apart, or buttons that fall off your shirt, or lieutenant coat etc etc (i can keep going). maybe thats why the lhamo was such a success - no buttons to fall off.

that's an internet myth. They use nice fabrics/materials but that doesn't mean they are more resistant, on the contrary they are sometimes more delicate. As for the Riri zips, that's not exactly a Visvim problem.
