So, I started off my VFFs with a Bikila LS, intending to use it for off-trail hiking, specifically related to geocaching. However, I found it difficult to dodge all the little twigs, and the EVA arch got damaged, so I got a treksport which worked fantastic. After that bit of backstory...I like to wear my Bikila LS around, but have run into a problem with the insole which is not there on the treksports. In the pinky toe on my right foot, there is a very noticeable piece of insole that is somewhat seperated from the side, and I can feel it clearly against my toe. It is pretty annoying, and I dont want to cause further harm. There is also a bit of rubber seperation on the big toe, left side. Is there anything I can do about these?

How long have you had them?  Are they still under warranty?  If so, I'd exchange them.

I bought them from a shoe store that does not have a set warranty. Is there anything else I can do? I got them early in the summer, been using them all summer and I am not too sure when this actually happened.

I believe Vibram has a set warranty, you just need Proof of Purchase.

Thanks for the advice, but I checked and it is past the 90 day warranty. Is there anything I can do to fix the shoes, and has anyone else had these problems? Thank you!

You could check out the mods/repairs section of the forum and see what types of glues and goos people have had success with.
