I'm planning on trying on a pair of FiveFingers KomodoSport LS' at REI,and I'm curious how wide is the foot opening?

(I previously tried on a pair of Komodosports- not the LS,and I couldn't get my foot inside.Do the laces on the LS make it easier to slip onto your foot?)


Thanks..

Laces are much easier to put on then straps  Don't be surprised if you don't need to tighten the laces after you get the shoe on.  Komodo LS is one of my next acquisitions, along with Spyridon LS next month.

I think they are quite a bit easier to get into with the laces.  I don't have a problem with the strap styles, but the LS are definitely easier.

Life is good!!! Just returned from REI with a brand-new pair of FiveFingers KomodoSport LS,size M42. Took a little bit of finesse to wriggle my feet in,compared to my Sprints..(being more enclosed).But,they were well worth the money.Quite excited with my new black/gray/green wondershoes.


(Side note:how water-resistant are the KomodoSports-i.e walking in the rain won't get them soaked?)
