From Rakuten Japan, along with a whole load of other Vibram soles.

If you're just after the 1276 sole, you can purchase via proxy from Amazon.com

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2/175-7128383-7404812?url=search-alias%3Darts-crafts&field-keywords;=vibram+1276

Or if you after a variety of them, Rakuten Japan is probably better as you can combine the order into one shipment using a proxy.

Anyone know if EePee is still doing a proxy service? He doesn't seem to respond to emails or PM's?

You out there?

Holding up very well, especially as they're a lot more harder wearing than Christy soles!

How baggy a cut is the Travail coverall? Looked at pics on the End site, but their new favourite model is 6'1" with a 34" chest, so it's difficult to gauge whether it's the jacket that's boxy or just that it's boxy on his particular frame.

Anyone around? Anyway, wondering if ya'll think this stuff from eBay looks legit. Damn me if it doesn't.

Fake, these are the ones from Taobao that sell for like 600rmb. They copied all the goretex jackets including the cord Valdez, which sells in China for like 1500rmb.

Do you know if they use real Goretex on the fakes? Wonder how good they are at impersonating that fabric "membrane."

And no one wants to get ripped off with a fake…rather pay the money, but I purchased this probably fake visvim Goretex jacket anyway because when I messaged the vendor, he said: "No worry bro, it's from Japan supplier and if you receive it and it's not authentic, you can send it back to our New York department. We will cover the return shipping. So you don't worry at all and nothing to lose."

I think the Goretex jacket might not be fake cuz another item the seller just listed is the visvim "dugout" shirt and who in their right mind would rip off this ugly slave jersey? http://shop.havenshop.ca/products/dugout-shirt-s-s-indigo-stripes-1

If you're ripping stuff off you make fakes of stuff that looks cool and will sell. This person must have overstock of stuff that just didn't sell. They certainly aren't visvim's cooler items. Or maybe a boutique closed.. Who knows. His visvim items don't look fake to me and it would be a strange collection of items to have fakes of.

Really though I'm not an authority. I do sell some real Goretex jackets on eBay so I suppose I'll be able to tell if the inner lining is legit.

You're an idiot, somebody ban this troll for promoting a counterfeit goods dealer. Everything he sells is a replica, just check taobao or use your eyes and look at the pictures hes posting vs stock pictures of the real deal.
