Menswear will no doubt see a trickle-down effect from this visvim FBT Prime Debut Collection
This year, Hiroki has decided to overhaul visvim’s flagship model for the new Spring/Summer collection, with the introduction of the FBT Prime. The FBT Prime sports a familiar moccasin upper that is constructed from Swedish vegetable-tanned cow suede and subtly refined, but wields a new sole unit that boasts a new heel counter design as well as a midsole that includes multiple flex grooves to improve the cushioning and comfort of the shoe overall. Finally, the sole unit also incorporates indigo-dyed cotton-nylon blend fabric details that tie it closer to the upper designer than before. It’s refreshing to see visvim continually refining the iconic FBT, and as the Americana revival hits traditional menswear we’ll no doubt see a trickle on effect to our little world of sneakers and streetwear shortly.
