Anyone have any suggestions for which version of the Spyridon I should get?  I'm mainly using it for hiking (probably no trail running).  I currently have KSO treks but they double as work shoes and would hate to get them trashed now that they're discontinued.

Not sure how technical of trails I'll be tackling as I just started hiking but the regions I'll be travelling are in the Pacific Northwest Mainly.  I'm not too worried about getting wet feet but I do like the breath-ability of my Vibram EL-X's. 

Thanks!

As a rule of thumb, LS versions tend to fit better to wider feet.

I have thick wide feet and I have the Spyridon LS.  I find the stiff fabric band on the shoe to be too restrictive and at times it can put pressure on my feet.  If you have overly wide feet, you may want to try the Non-LS version.  First chance that I get to try on the non-LS version I am going to, just to see if they will work.  I like the Spyridon sole, but that annoying stiff band can be problematic.  If your feet are not wide, then there are some good deals to be had on the Spyridon LS.

I have the regular version for hiking, and I love them - although I did cut off the velcro strap because it bothered the top of my foot even on the loosest possible setting (think I have tall feet - did the same thing to my KSO-treks).  They only slip around a little if I'm wearing socks with them and get wet feet.  otherwise they are awesome.  Also, REI still has some sizes of KSO trek on sale for around $30 (at least in women's) on the "shop REI outlet" area of their website.  Might be a good idea to grab a spare while they're still around.  I did.
