In the desire to have his customers experience a wide range of luxuries, visvim‘s founder Hiroki Nakamura often seeks exotic materials as the foundation for his footwear design. One example is the new FBT Kudu JP, completely hand made with Kudu hide, a free roaming antelope found only in parts of Africa. Lined with cow hide and a natural cork footbed, all treated with natural dyes, or in some cases no dyes at all. The end product, in visvim’s signature moccasin silhouette, is something extremely breathable and light on your feet. To enhance the design further, Nakamura added a durable outsole, custom-made by Vibram, with a TPU heel stabilizer for rigidity. Comes in Dark Brown or Bordeaux, though unfortunately the editions will only be available in The land of the rising sun.
