Visvim has risen to critical acclaim on the strength of two classic designs: their FBT takes the chukka to an entirely new level, while the Kiefer capitalizes on a Chuck Taylor-like silhouette. Appopriating another standby in collaboration with French boutique Colette, the Visvim Hockney Folk is a distressed take on the long-standing boat shoe concept.
These rock a navy blue, brick red and white colourway, which is supposed to represent the French flag, but reminds us more of Nike’s do-ups for USA Basketball and other Olympians from the States. These are perfect whether you’re a yankee or rep the Bastille. They’ll even work if you’ve got some kind of split-personality thing going on. The only catch is that because this is a Euro Exclusive, the size 8 pair we found on eBay is going for $631 US, so folks might think you’re crazy no matter what. Via IndividualSole
