What Does “FBT” mean in Visvim’s FBT moccasins?
“One of your iconic products is the FBT shoe. What’s the history behind this product?
I created the FBT shoe in 2001, during visvim’s second season. The inspiration came from a Fun Boy Three record cover, which Hiroshi Fujiwara showed me. He pointed out lead singer Terry Hall’s moccasins, and suggested I do something like that. I did some research on it, and decided to combine the traditional moccasin with an EVA Phylon midsole used for trainers. I also used primitive elk leather, which was commonly used for American Indian moccasins.”
