I wear them for casual. I have worn them with a khaki suit before, and I think you can do that and I think it's cool, but for me it's what I wear to the beach or what I wear the minute I get home at night."

Somebody rescue this ♥♥♥♥♥

Rare but attainable, as soon as they get released jump on a proxy with cash ready and you'll have a chance at getting them - wait a week and they'll be gone.

Had a pair of 12s for sale a few months ago, sold them to some dude in the UK for $1.1k AUD.

Dag, I'm leaning towards a second-hand pair, I doubt i will be able to pay full price for some virgils for a whileeeeeeeeeeee. I'm still in college after all...

Haha I'm at uni too but didn't stop me.

Honestly think it's almost worth just buying a new pair proxied. Considering how rare size 12 is, people in that size hold onto them for ages and even if they do sell, it's for a high price size they know how limited the size is. Just save, they're worth it for most people but since i'm in a climate where it's barely cold except for 3 months out of the entire year, kinda pointless.

Holy shit maroon hockney's look sick!

Nah you can wear it I guess in summer but it just looks a little bit "off", if you know what I mean. It's barely cold here, rarely gets under 10 degrees (46 fahrenheit) during the day and that's only for 2 or 3 months max whilst summer can get up to 48 degrees (118 fahrenheit). I'll admit the KNGR Virgils didn't suit me for some reason hence why I passed them on but def would like a pair of the suedes now.

the suede looks really nice, especially broken in with a little dirt smokeyface to clarify how much in USD is a new pair of virgils?

That's a shame, I wonder if he'll realize his mistake or he has found a niche of uber rich hipsters that can afford this type of thing.

Without sounding too racist but it's the Chinese that keep buying, every single time i've been at FIL there's been Chinese tourists buying up big; minus FIL Kyoto which seems to be deserted. Some dude dropped

no racist cause this is a "fact"....lol ( btw, I am a chinese)

that's why HK FIL probably the most expensive official retailer ( well, so do tres bien tongueface )

Meanwhile, as a part of chinese( HK ), it's not fun when the other chinese ( from other parts of china which has much wealth than we do) buying stuff and making the price tag increases every season... _||0


Yeah true.

It's honestly crazy how the Chinese will still buy a certain brand even if it's considered dead by Westerns eg Bape which is only surviving because of the Chinese.


Did you see what he bought? lol


From what I could see, 3 pairs of footwear and one of them was the Grizzly's, 2 bags and some clothing. He wasn't even finished, kept looking at other things whilst the SA was packing it all up. If he was a staff member of a resell store, wouldn't surprise me seeing as it's fairly common apparently after speaking to the SA's a bit.

He was with 3 other friends who were buying too but that gear was just for that one dude. They asked me where Bape was too lol, no doubting they're reselling - all were from Shanghai rocking head to toe Vis/Bape/Fenom/CDG.
