Since its founding 2001, designer Hiroki Nakamura's Visvim has built an extremely dedicated cult following. With a laser focus on crafting unique and high quality "future vintage" garments, Visvim has gained international acclaim over the past two decades for their unique perspective and exceptional design.
Not limited strictly to workwear or couture, they produce Folkwear, inspired by regional and historical manufacturing techniques from mud-dyeing to crocheting, with collections that build off of each previous year and develop holistically, season after season.
Note: as with almost all Visvim footwear, the texture of the leather used may vary drastically from pair to pair, as hides are cut to maximize use of unique and interesting grain - as such, no two pairs are exactly alike, and the appearance of your pair may differ slightly than those pictured here.
The Brigadier Boot is a class 6" heritage style workboot, with both vintage & unique details paired with an exceptional leather. They feature a heavy duty construction, with a logger heel, 360 degree goodyear hand welt, double & triple-row stitching, rivet reinforcements, and a full leather lining, insole, and midsole.
Featuring a classic workboot silhouette, these blend durability with elegance, combining a conventionally hard-worn style with luxury materials and production (the specialty horsehide leather and hand-welted construction.
They're made from an absolutely beautiful Italian vegetable-tanned horsehide, with an abundance of unique grain texture and tonal variance. It's thick, heavy, and waxy, requiring a little time to break in but moulding into the shape of your foot over time for maximum comfort.
They stand on a custom Visvim Vibram half sole and heel combo, with a zig zag motif for traction, they maintain a low profile without sacrificing durability or comfort. They close up with a set of waxed cotton laces that slide through 7 brass eyelets.
Fits true to brannock size.
