visvim to Open Second Hand Retail Store in 2012 visvim to Open Second Hand Retail Store in 2012

visvim founder & designer Hiroki Nakamura has recently been quoted in CODE Magazine about his hopes to open a second hand store next year, saying “…This is the first time I’m telling anyone this. The idea is somehow to buy back and resell, buy back and resell…so, like, then my scene is complete. It will probably happen in 2012”.

visvim as a company is dedicated to earth-friendly practices, so this offbeat retail store idea, while somewhat surprising in concept, actually makes sense in the whole visvim ‘big picture’. With a focus on obtaining old product from the brand and again putting them back on the market, the idea is both compelling and exciting considering how hard it is to get a pair of visvim shoes as is.

Visvim Skagway Seminole

Japan’s hipster label Visvim delivers a patchwork high top in a familiar Chuck Taylor silhouette. Although not a collaboration, Visvim clearly calls upon the iconic basketball boot, for their latest street sneak.

Named the Skagway Seminole, these retro kicks have an upper consisting of mixed material swatches. This gives the whole shoe a very arts and crafts look. With a factory distressed sole for “authenticity,” we feel these are somewhere between Woodstock and the Bay City Rollers. Oops, have I just alluded to my age?

The Shoe Surgeon Pairs visvim FBT with Footscape Sole

Fall is the perfect season to break out that pair of visvim FBT’s that you’ve been holding onto all summer. The style centric hybrid works well in cool climate, and for canvassing your city on the day-to-day.

The Shoe Surgeon, though, had other plans for his pair. In an effort to juxtapose the “Geo Patchwork” FBT for a more cushion friendly ride, he fused a Nike Footscape sole unit below the suede upper. With speckled detailing that matches the navy upper, a gum outer finishes the look of this budding creation.

Are you feeling these? Give them a look below and share your thoughts accordingly.
