they are wide across the toe box, but yep I definitely think you can size down half or possibly full in them

I thought they fit true. I bought a half size down and they were just about ok. No way could I have gone a full size down. Half at most.

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.
Foleys, Hockney, Virgil, kiefer, fbt, 7 holes, patrician, skagway, logan, newell I got all in us10.

Thanks for the above. Another question! Does anyone know if they have ever done shirt labels stating the sizing in letters, rather than numbers? I've seen a flag shirt in my size but have only ever seen 4 as opposed to xl.

I think it's this one but white.

That'll be the one. Yeah I think the label looks a bit off.

They definitely used to use S-XL labelling, but the flag shirts started being released after they switched to numbered sizing.

Defo got my moneys worth. The first 7 hole 73’s. Going since 2009(I think??).

Will do eventually. Planning on going to Valhalla in them.

https://hypebeast.com/2020/1/visvim-spring-summer-2020-lookbook they should use older models.

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 ever 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 sure if its just from an older release?

Any chance I could resurrect this question?

@jplxx - What does your insole look like? #nodjshadow

Ah ok. I looked and SIDAS is a Vibram brand, so wasn't sure if it was an earlier model that came as part of the Vibram outsole. Mind you given the age of yours it probably isn't the case that it is just an earlier model.

Thanks!
