chacos & vibrams
« on: June 18, 2012, 03:59:43 pm »
Any recommendations for stores that sell Chacos or Vibrams in Seoul or thereabouts? I left mine in the US, planned to have them shipped to me but that's not an option now.

And please, no suggestions to shop online. I want to try them on in-store, not wait for them to arrive, try them on, and have to return them. So help me, if you suggest shopping online, I would reach through the internet and slap you if it were possible.

You can try ABC Mart for shoes/sandals with Vibram souls, but I haven't seen any Chaco sandals in Korea.  While we are on the subject has anyone seen Birkenstock Millanos or similar that don't have the fake plastic leather uppers? I'm sure they are out there, but.....

ABC Mart in Itaewon has birkenstocks
If you dont find what you are looking for endless.com has a wide range , and shipping is only $10.
I have ordered from them a few times and delivery is very fast. (keep your order under $130 to avoid customs tax)

I was in itaewon and saw a bunch of chacos for sale. Some with the vibram soles. I think it was actually the Merrel store that was selling them.

I was under the distinct impression that the vibram brand was not available outside of the Americas.  A quick look at the website seems to confirm this impression http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/productsupport/store_locator.cfm

If anybody knows otherwise I'd love to know also.

Are you looking for Vibram soles or the Vibram FiveFinger shoes?
If it is the latter, message me I am trying to sell my pair.

I actually found several styles of Vibram Five Fingers at a local Les More, but the largest size they had of any of them was 270. Unfortunately, the language barrier was too great for me to find out any more than that.
