If whoever made it wants a better photo to make it look more “legit”

You've certainly done them justice. Original soles too.

It’s really nice. Mad pricing though. That particular colour way is great

shirt looks average. He wears and pairs it like a fool too

hey jplxx. So the uppers are durable and look great, that riri zip failed hard (always bet on YKK) and how are you gonna find a cobbler who can replace cotton with those reinforced nylon strips based on a US jungle boot? Would Vis take them back for restoration? Didn't they used to do that? Another option would be to canablise an actual pair of US jungle boots and donate em? But you're gonna have OD colour then. Could look great, could look like total shit, probably tougher than the Vis though. Build ups could save most of the original soles?

Veggie wallet is cool, I have a Goro's wallet and card case both with no zips I'm hoping, save being rolled, lasts my lifetime too.

Anyone know where you could get the same or similar Vibram sole? Looking at a pair that is no where near as worn as these, but would be good to know for future!

Also, does anyone know if Vis every sold the 73 boots with a SIDAS/Vibram insole, rather than branded leather? The pair I am looking at has the carbon bit on the heel, so not if its just from an older release?

What's the sizing like generally across Vis' boots range? Are they all TTS?

Completely varies from style to style.

Sorry should say. I have a US12 in Foley's, Hockney's and Voyageur's. Looking at Virgils and Grizzlys, but both are hard to find in Us12 and wondering if US11 would work.

Grizzlies fit big imo. Virgils not so much - maybe half down if you have narrow feet.

The Grizzly is the one I am most keen on. Would be tempted to chance it but it would be about a £400-£500 punt! Laughing out loud
