I drank from the cup as well.  I have three pair now, and have told my wife to cut up the credit card. Smiley

that's only 2 pairs each.  I have 3 pairs, two of which I bought during the course of an injury that won't even allow me to run in them!

Is there something worse than addict, if so, it's me.

1 kso
2 treks (black, that stays pristine for work; brown  for trails and casual use when clean)
2 classics (subtle black, more playful orange/grey)
1 bikila

Plus a pair of sprints on back order at rei.

I even rationalize that I "need" them all.  They all have their uses you know.  Every day I fight the urge to go try on another pair of Bikilas at a local store, you know just to make sure I bought the right size on my first pair.   Help me.

I only have two pair a magenta bikila and grey/orange classic but I find myself checking REI almost every day to see what they happen to have in stock.  I have a pair of kso on backorder at REI and I'm lusting after the womens trek!

I have 3 pairs of VFF's, grey/palm KSO, Mauve Classics, Grey/Green Bikila's. I also have 2 pairs of Vivo Barefoots, the EVO, and the Isis.

I can't wait for the smartwool classic, and I want to get a black pair of either KSO's or Classics, I can't decide which, though if the womens trek ends up in black that may end up being the black pair I get.

I just really wish I could wear them while at work instead of having to wear my boots... But I don't think any minimilist shoe will ever meet the military uniform requirements for a combat boot.

Yeah....I just bought a pair of Bikilas.  This will be pair number four next to my two pairs of KSOs and my Sprints.  Yikes!   Shocked

That being said though, I'm hoping every one will find its own role.  I want the Bikilas for running, the Sprints for running trails/grass, one pair of KSOs for running outside in wet or messy conditions, and the other KSOs for everyday use.

Hee hee.  I can just imagine the full-dress versions.  Ultra-shiny patent toes.  And having to polish thoroughly between them all!

That sure is potent Kook Aid because I just bought my 3rd pair.  I'm now the proud owner of classics, bikilas and now KSOs.
