Hi all  Cheesy

Thought I'ld turn this one into a poll. More experienced VFF'ers will probably score 'higher'. Curious about the results!

KSO is probably about 30 sec.  Trek maybe a minute.  KSO is faster because it's a size bigger so easier to get my foot into.

Edit: thought about it this AM as I was putting on my KSOs - it's definitely under 30 sec per foot, probably under 30 sec for both together.

Sprints under 30 sec, though I have not measured :-)
Treks a bit longer, but I guess under a minute.

First time trying vff's was a pair of KSO's, and was 2-5 min. Now 30 sec as I've figured out how to angle the foot so my pinky toe lines up Smiley

While you would expect the easiest to put on to be my Classics, I find the easiest ones my Treks. I can splay my toes fairly wide, so I do that as I slide them on and my toes go right into the pockets every time without fail. Effortless compared to my other top covered ones like my Flows, KSO's etc. Classics are very quick as well.

The only VFF's i've ever had trouble with really are my Speeds for going running in. They feel like the toes are at an angle to how you slide them on. I need to slide them on almost crooked and guide my toes in one by one, different to every other pair but even that doesnt take more than about a minute to get the pair on at most.

KSOs, Flows, Sprints or Mocs. It doesn't matter, takes me less than 10secs per foot. I guess that just makes me lucky.

Treks and KSO's are hands free except to pull up the heel.  Injinji's with KSO's add a couple seconds and a hand at the strap if I'm wearing them to work on a casual day, but still under 30 seconds.  The toes have even learned how to get into the injinjis with out needing help other than a quick pull over the heel.

I have a heck of a time getting my little toe into the last pocket - it always wants to go in the next to last one ! I have Treks & treksports.

My feet slide into my VFFs (Trek, KSO, Flow, LS) in or under 10 seconds each, but it's the toe socks that take a while for me to put on.

Less than 30 seconds for either my KSOs, or Komodo Sports

I put my foot into the shoe, and then spread my toes as I pull it on from the ankle loop. My toes always seem to find their pockets with no problem.

I think folks with wider feet experience a bit more difficulty.

Prob 30 secs Id guess for me a little longer for the flow treks, the very odd time i do wear toe socks though takes me an age to get the socks on compared to the VFF themselves.
