When not working out, what do you wear with your VFF's?  I'm curious how well the black or brown trek's do with jeans and such.  The place I work at is fairly casual, an I may be able to pull it off.  The more I run in Bikilas, the more I hate shoes.

I usually wear a pair of blue or black jeans along with my black KSOs.  Too bad I can't wear them at work -- wouldn't go well with a dress shirt and tie -- so I have to settle for wearing Earth Shoes.

Pretty much anything - shorts, skirts, pants... but it does tend to be on the sporty-outdoorsy end of things.  I wear sandals or low flats when I have to actually dress up.

My Brown Treks look really good with jeans and a t-shirt even my palm/grey KSOs look good in jeans but here in florida i tend to wear shorts a lot and I'll usually wear my sprints or classics for the free foot tan

I guess I'm lucky: sittin' in cubicle in camo cargo shorts (cargo shorts being about the only thing I wear these days), my brown treks and a t-shirt from Threadless.com ("sad psycho" if yer wonderin').

Well lets see... ANYTHING you would normally wear when not working out.

Matching different colors VFF's with my clothes is very fun indeed. With jeans you can wear almost any model looking good, you just have to choose a matching upper (t-shirt/pull-over/etc). Of course, you need more than one pair before you are in trouble choosing between different colors. Brown or black are very safe of course.

I have the mauve classics and black KSOs - lets just get that out in the open first Smiley

Until my HR department put the kibosh on my wearing of VFFs to work (yesterday) - except for casual Friday, I pretty much wore whatever with either pair of VFFs.  A pretty, flowery skirt and girlie shirt w/ the Classics, Capris/Gauchos w/ the KSOs.  I'm a fashionista Smiley 

Now I suppose I'll go buy some shoes, but I will still pair my VFFs with whatever I feel like wearing - shorts/skirts/pants/whatever!

I have brown treks and wear them most days at work with jeans.  I also wear my classics with jeans in a more casual setting (with T shirts).  I do not wear my treks with shorts though, it just looks a bit odd to me.  If I am wearing shorts it is classics/barefooted or foot coffins.

T-shirt, shorts or a skirt (denim  or a sporty/board type), and I will be quite happy to wear them even with a tie-dye dress (when weather permits) - obviously I am female :-)
I noticed that, from a distance, my black sprints look almost like flat Mary Janes.

Well.  With some bright blue jeans  love to sport my Bright Blue Bikila's since they don't really go with any other clothes I have.  Brown treks for khakis and casual dress situations.  Red bikilas with shorts. Black KSO's with any long pants.  Classics around the house.  That's my fashion pairing with my vffs.

I usually wear a pair of black Sprints for most casual outings (with jeans and shorts). I also have a pair of grey/green KSOs, and actually have a green polo shirt that matches.  Grin  That's a fun combo for me.

I gave up pairing clothes to my VFFs. I guess I don't care anymore. What really goes with grey and fuschia KSOs anyway?

Black classics on the other hand are a no brainer.

I guess I'm only half transitioned.  I LOVE my new VFFs for running and am pretty sure I'll never buy another actual running "shoe"....but I still love my heels and sandals.  Smiley
