visvim (Japan) 2015 Spring/Summer SKAGWAY HI MERRICK

Under the watchful eye of founder and creative director Hiroki Nakamura, visvim has released another rendition of their SKAGWAY HI model. Dubbed the SKAGWAY HI MERRICK, visvim’s latest edition for spring/summer 2015 has done well to retain many of the classic design cues for which this particular model has become favored for. Presented as a comfortable high top sneaker, the shoe features a relatively high outsole with a rubber capped toe box and an upper made from visvim’s original MERRICK print chino fabric.

Amongst such details, the premium cowhide suede heel chimney has been specially treated for a unique appearance and to assure that no two products are alike. Look for these at select visvim retailers in the coming weeks.
