Thanks for the info.

Wow, that is interesting; the Osma is half the price of the EVO in the states!

Not found that to be the case myself

Jason

Well, I'm a size 8.5 US/ 41 Euro and even the size 9.5 US was too narrow for my foot. My foot is 10" / 25.4cm long and 4" / 10.16cm wide accross the ball of my foot when fully weighted. Before I discovered VFFs I ran in Asics GT-2130 which have a nice wide toe box. I also tried Saucony Type A2, but they were too narrow too. I really don't consider my foot to be overly wide. I just don't want anything to feel tight on my foot.

If you would've liked the Saucony if it had a bit less heel and was wider, you might like the Brooks Green Silence. I've had both, and tried hard to like the Type A2, but the Brooks is 10 times better IMO.

Does anyone else think of the Wizard of OZ series everytime they read Osma?

*laughs*

Maybe they need to make a ruby-colored version.

I go barefoot, but my dog wears shoes.

Hmm I bet it would look better than the teal ones. Wink

So, I just went to Academy and saw some decent looking watersocks made by Tredz for like $5.  Didn't have time to try them on, but they looked promising for a very cheap minimalist option as the sole is very flexible and thick enough to last at least a few months, but not so thick that they provide tons of cushioning or anything.  I might go back this weekend and slip them on.
