LEGIT CHECK PLEASE?!?!

bought these at samplekickz, i know i know samplekickz is said to be legit but these kngr virgils seems a little off for my liking.
especially the toe vibram area, it seems really bad constructed and in person, the wood bedding area at the front is lumpy especially on the left shoe!!! and also the right and left front vibram area is different level!! the left one is shorter!
Compared to my patricians, the virgils are made terribly!!!!!!!
and also it seems to be different shade in the inside!
it looks the part but the toe area is really fishy!
sent an email to Visvim back in august and lool still no reply! its really bad customer service if you ask me.

so please check it out, and if it happens to be fake, then DONT EVER SHOP WITH SAMPLEKICKZ!








so legit or just im bad luck and got some real but terribly made ones?
must be fake, visvims products are always of the highest quality

looks like the 109 logger sole - http://www.amazon.com/Vibram-Logger-Sole-Heel-Black/dp/B0090ULF3W

the montagna and roccia have more of a squared off toe area.

yo dee, i may be new to this forum, but ive been on here for years, i keep seeing your name here so you must know quite alot about vis!
if you say they are legit, then its relieve for me!
i cant exchange them anymore, as i got them back in the summer and it was the last pair samplekickz had.
well visvim should though at least reply back as this the kngr was purchased from one of japan' FIL with the FIL purchase date, name of employee sticker on the box and with the matching hologram number!

so this is why i feel its real but fake at the time with the construction!
thanks for your comment anyways!

I'm hoping this Gibbs stuff is a return to older, more technical (but still tailored and clean) Visvim of a few years ago.

It'll probably just be a nicer version of WIP though.

Cheers Fläsket.

I was struggling a bit there. Ive sent some off to be re-done in the standard vibram, but i've tried to change at the last minute and they're saying it's 'probably' the montagna. Clearly isn't though as the toe box is different.

Those kngr's are most definitely real. That uneven look on the front is just part of what happens after sanding down the soles to the upper when they are fused. Between the small details like the double-sole, the norwegian welt, the stitched toe fix that vis recently implemented, those are far from fake.

^depends which season. Pre SS13, I think it is OK to go up up 1/2 size. I think SS13 fits a tad wider.

I can't recommend Saddlers4you (http://www.shoerepairsonline.co.uk) enough. I sent my gornergrats to them on wednesday and they were back with me on my desk this morning. That's service. Lets see how long vis take with a pair or virgils i've set them Laughing out loud
