Maybe he just doesn't know about visvim?

think thats the point he is making.
does anyone who doesnt post on a forum or who has a blog?

Yeah I know, but it's not exactly crazy for someone who, like 99% of the population, doesn't know about visvim, to not understand them/prefer something else.

I think plenty do,most of the non Asian customer for Visvim are just people with money who shop in luxuary stores,they arent hunting stuff online all day they just see something they like and buy it and once they get in to it the store will often allow them to order straight from the catalouge at the same time the store dose its order they are sold the product by the store telling them/introducing them to it, the only thing the 'internet customer' really buys from brands like visvim are the instantly noticable pieces (fbt/christo/backpacks) in general these are the only products any store in europe particulary with street based client have any chance of selling in any number, its sad but true.

Ok ok, my point wasn't that people do or don't know about visvim, i was jst saying that it isnt surprising (as was suggested in the story) for someone who has never seen visvim/ never heard of the brand to not like or want them.

No he actually said he knows everything about the brand but still thinks they're bland or whatever. I mean I'm never going to like every single Visvim piece there is but still, I appreciate the time and effort that goes into making a pair of shoes. The fact that most, if not all their footwear is toned down is appealing to me as I'd rather wear something 'bland' rather then a myriad of colours.

why do you care what he thinks?other than it meant you couldnt flog him something you want rid of.
