Justin Timberlake has had a couple of style eras over the course of his career. When he was a part of ‘NSYNC, he was rocking the blond curly hair and all denim-everything trend. When he went solo, he took some of Pharrell’s skate sensibilities and took it into his own form by rocking beanies, graphic tees, baggy jeans, and sweatbands. Around 2006 though he was rocking a 3-piece YSL suits with sneakers. Then turned around and made a song about his admiration of Tom Ford suits.
But after the suit & tie era ended Justin Timberlake has been spotted sporting an everyman kind of casual look. But besides this Justin Timberlake has taken a liking into the Visvim FBT’s, a sneaker that has a rich sneakerhead history because of the price tag and the number of predominant names they have been seen on.
The shoe is a type of sneaker-moccasin hybrid that is considered to be Visvim’s signature product, the show debuted a year after Visvim’s launch in 2000. The sneakers were inspired by a pair of shoes worn on the cover of an album by the Fun Boy Trio and over the years has had many different models that come in suede, full grain leathers, and corduroy. Timberlake favorite pair so far has been the classic brown suede pair.
The FBT’s are nowhere near cheap, the shoes usually range from $600-$800 retail. The pair Timberlake rocks are currently going for around $600, the pair he wears are a little different from other versions of FBT’s because of a small red bead on one of the ties that connect the suede collar to the shoe’s proper upper. No one is exactly sure what brought Justin Timberlake to the coveted shoes but he could of have drawn inspiration from the likes of Eric Clapton, John Mayer, and Kanye West, who have been seen wearing the shoes.
