Mole?  Huh

And as for pictures... Maybe. Not sure if I have batteries for my camera. Are there really no pictures of it being worn?

re: mole   just a stupid joke     Tongue
someone that wants to know more about the Fila, a `traitor` so to speak.... only kidding of course
I can imagine people starting out with Fila`s, and I haven`t even checked all their models, so

I'm pretty satisfied with my collection for now (I'm going to need something come fall/winter).

VFF:

2 KSO (gray and remix)
Bikila LS (gray and black)
KSO Trek (brown)

Other:

Vivobarefoot Ultra Pure (these may be my favorite and a great "kickaround" summertime shoe)
NB Minimus Trail Zero (4E width and a darn fine shoe on or off road)

Bordering on minimal:
2 pair of Altra Instincts

Gray KSO
black KSO trek
Merrell road glove
Merrell mix master 2 (borderline minimal)

Think I'm good with these for now. I don't like owning a lot more than I'm going to use. Actually, I'd love to have just one pair of workout shoes that work for everything. If I could ever finish transitioning/stay healthy, I think the road glove could be that shoe (works great for trails, too).

Anyone want to pay $1000 for some Merrel Trail Gloves haha? Saw this in an ad and clicked on the link to Amazon and took a screen shot of it. Must be some weird typo.

I'd go $1000, but not $1042. Now that's just ridiculous.

Two days ago I added the Vivobarefoot Neo Trail (black) to my collection. I'm going wear them in wet circumstances (I do dog agility normally on my VFF but when the grass is wet from dew of rain, I walk around with wet feet the rest of the day). But I'm taking them on vacation tomorrow as well, they look like good hiking shoes as well, since they expect some rain the next days.

My signature lists them all. Smiley

Most my pairs of Vivobarefoot shoes were bought when prices dip low on Amazon, 50 a pair, with exception of the Neo Trails, which I bought full price, and one pair of the VFFs were secondhand, so I'm trying to not pay as much where I can!

Vivobarefoot:
3 x ultra, aqualite, ra, alexander, breatho trail

VFF:
Sprint, Komodosport, Komodosport LS, Bikila, Bikila LS

Altra:
Adam, instinct, samson

Huaraches:
Runbranca, Luna, Bedrock, unshoe


And I'm considering if i should get classics, since I like sprints... I had two sizes too small classics once, I was bit missguided with sizing back then. All shoe sizing guides just about everywhere give me one or two sizes too small shoes.

Just a few months ago I sold about fifteen pairs of minimalist shoes, so i'm bit low on shoes now... Currently my favourite running shoes are sprints and bikila LS. Ultra is great for shorter runs, but it tends to chafe badly sometimes, so I find it bit too unreliable. And since I run mostly on trails it gets filled with stuff.. I'm too lazy to adjust huaraches, so I don't try to use them anymore...

I definitely recommend getting a pair of Classics while you still can.  They are by far my favorite minimalist shoe.

Mr Leigh,  have you noticed a difference in sizing for the classics from black to colors?  I am interested in a couple other pairs, but I only have the black and don't want to get the wrong size.

JustinB,

Unfortunately the only black Classics I have are my Suomys.  I do not have and have never tried on an all black pair.  There are tons of threads about black being small and people needing to up-size in both Classics and KSOs.  There are people who also felt that same way about the Smartwools, which I do have, and I never had to size up for those.  Do you have any other Classics so you at least know how a non-black pair fits you?
