Visvim Logan

Posted by samplekickz on 30 January, 2007

Visvim presents yet another new sneaker in its line-up – the Logan. Clearly taking inspiration from Vans, Visvim once again manages to make the shoe look more detailed and presents it in premium leathers and with very nice suede accents.

While some of the Visvim shoes are harder to wear because they are so different, these are definitely not part of that category and are simple enough to go with anything. Definitely a nice addition to their collection. For some people they might be too close to the Vans and not worth the extra money. But if you want something more high-end then this is the way to go.

Visvim x Sophnet Zahra

Posted by samplekickz on 26 January, 2007

rtemagicc_visvim_sophnet-01.jpg

Shortly after the collaboration of Visvim with Kaws on the Zahra slip-on, they now present a new collaboration on the same shoe with Sophnet. This one is kept rather simple and features premium black leather and perforated pattern on the toe box. It kind of mixes a traditional “Budapest” leather shoe with a slip-on, which is an interesting combination
