Hey do you guys know if this is normal?



I just got a pair of plain toes off eBay. They eyelets seem to be rusting…

The shoes came with tags and a box. Anything I can look for to check if these are legit?

Quick sizing question: How do Virgils fit (looking to pick up a used KNGR pair) in comparison to other brands? ie. Converse, New Balance.

Looking to get a size 8, but if they run big it doesn't seem like lesser sizes come up often.

Legit.

Buy your normal size, but at push and pain you'll get away with one smaller.

Don't tear the sole out as advised here a few pages back.

Thanks guys. Really appreciate it! Any recommendations on how I can clean up the suede/eyelets?

And what do you guys usually look out for when trying to avoid fakes?

There are some really good fakes knocking around. Best thing to do is to ask detailed pictures of the shoe/materials. Fakes usually have crap leather and the stitching is a bit off. As example for FBTs, fakes usually have very cheap (thin) laces/tassles.

I wish people would start buying 3s so normal people can wear Vis when it's up in the classifieds.
