The Moccasin-Athletic Shoe Hybrid

Save Big On Cult Brand Visvim’s Iconic FBT Shoe


November 17, 2017 Style By

First released in 2001, Visvim’s iconic FBT shoe perfectly embodies the cult Japanese brand’s aesthetic. It’s a blend of old and new, a moccasin-style upper on an athletic shoe midsole. A detail-rich sleek design, the FBT (named in reference to the ‘80s new wave pop band Fun Boy Three) features a hand-sewn suede upper, an EVA midsole, a TPU heel stabilizer and a Vibram outsole. The shoe is normally priced at $719, but if you shop now at online retailer End, you can get 35 percent off. The FBT is available in a range of sizes and comes in black, dark brown, sand and camel. Though pricey, it’s a worthy investment for the right person: an incredibly comfortable shoe with both quality construction and distinct style.
