Hello all. I already own a pair of Bikila LS's that I wear for running. But, I'm looking for a pair to wear around for daily casual wear. I like how the KSO Treks have the traditional looking leather upper and would probably be a little warmer. However, I think I would like the traditional vibram sole of the KSO's for ground feel. Any suggestions?

I have both the KSOs and the KSO Treks.  I wear the KSOs for casual wear and my KSO Treks to work.

If you don't have to worry about how casual a shoe is, I would go for the regular KSOs. I agree with Dirk, the groundfeel is so much better in the regular KSOs.

Thanks for the info. I'm still undecided here, but I still haven't tried either one on yet. I hope my local store carries them both. I like the look of the Treks more than the KSOs.

To me kso trek look much more classy, and go best than kso with jeans, cargo's, etc. Regular KSO look more like a sport/aqua shoe (at least that's what most non-users think). And now you have trek LS which look even much better, in my opinion, for the whole range of casual use (from less casual to almost formal).

Try both, and see how you feel with them, but to me the trek LS beat all models, regarding looks.

i have treks and classics, which are pretty much the same as the kso. i'd much rather wear my classics than my treks to just walk around in(unless it's raining). i don't know if it's just me, but i start to feel the cleats through the soles the more i walk in them.

Of course, if you are thinking about being comfortable, to me nothing beats KSO (classics feel more uncomfortable for me due to the way they stay in place, in KSO they wrap the hole foot around instead than with the cord around). But if you also take into account the look, treks or trek ls are much more classy.

I'm with PB Junkie - I wear my KSOs for the amazing ground feel but the Treks for work and for trail runs (I wash them in between!). There's no comparison in comfort between the two - the KSO wins hands down.

KSO Trek is more classy but KSO has better groundfeel.

I wouldn't go out in colder temperatures in the KSO. I had close to frostbite in them even with Injinjis. On the plus side, I had a VERY high cadence as if I were on hot coals (or cold asphalt/sidewalks, rather).

I have KSO's, KSO Trek's, and Trek LS's....  I can't always wear my KSO's due to being too casual, BUT I WISH I COULD!!!  If you can get away with KSO's, the ground feel is sooo much better.  Thinner soles all the way!

I prefer to do it bare...

Thanks for all of your opinions. Looks like I need to pick up both really, but I think I'll be going with the Treks for now.
