Vibram has new shoes for us!  I love the look of the new alitza models.  However, I'm not going to get too excited because the alitza sole just is not very comfortable for me.  It's just so thin, narrow, and so low profile it just does not fit my feet that well.   I also don't like the super low heel counters that the alitza models have- it just doesn't feel secure.

I wish vibram would do shoes with the feminine alitza styling on different soles- like the jaya sole.  The jaya was amazing.  Good thing I stocked up, it doesn't look like it's coming back anytime soon.   Or the kmd sole.  I wouldn't mind a bit of padding either, as long as the sole is still flexible.   I don't agree with the pursuit of the absolute thinnest sole possible.  The lightest shoe does not equal closer to barefoot because if you're concerned with your shoes staying on your feet, that really messes with your mechanics.   

But who knows, maybe the different lacing options will make the alitza feel more secure.  Anything's possible.  Besides the new alitza models, there's also a kmd evo, trek ascent, and trek ascent lr.

Yeah, I am pretty crazy about the Trek Ascent LR, but I just bought Spyridons LR (of which I hate the color and fit) so I can't justify an other hiking shoes. If I had known...
