Alrighty, I'll try that out.  Washed them with fabric softener but it didn't seem to help any, though some of the glue on the toes now appears to have already given out :/

Strange thing is my new Classic Blk Mens fit the same as the other pair I have, the only issue I have is the normal "break-in" peroid, but I'm only on my second week for either pair so everything still hurts some.

I just ordered my second pair of VFF, first pair was KSO blue/grey camo and I order a pair 2 sizes to big (M46)  so I sent them back (I made a mistake the first time and used a ruler that had about a 1/2 inch gap before the actual ruler started  Undecided ). This second time I decided to go with the black pair and I order the size I measured (M44). I read all of the comments that the black KSO run small but I figured that my last pair was so big that I would take the chance. I will let yall know how they fit when they come in. I ordered them from Sun and Ski Sports for $59.93  Smiley

Updated: So I received my size M44 Black KSO today and although they are tight in the toes, they fit great and are very comfortable. I am glad I went with this size. Just looking forward to going to the gym and walking in them tonight. It is only 10 degrees outside today other wise I would go outside. I am going to take it easy because I do not want to risk injury.

According to Vibram's size chart, I should be wearing a 34 in KSOs (and a 35 in Classics or Sprints).  However, I had hell's own time even getting size-34 KSOs on over my high arches.  (The store did not have any 35s.)

Hopefully, the Sprints I've probably just scored will be truer to size.

I spoke to someone at Vibram about a QC issue with the Jaya (two 40W's, one was much tighter than the other).  At that point, he asked me if one was black and one was not.  I said no (both were black), then asked why.  He said that the black dye, because it is chemically different from the lighter-colored dyes, can cause some shrinkage in the material.  So this says two things:  Vibram does have a QC issue with inter-unit variation (as evidence by what I found with the Jayas) and, independently of this, some models of black Vibrams may be consistently smaller than their lighter-colored siblings.  The latter may explain the black KSOs being smaller.

Hi! What about the new 2013 spring models of the black KSOs? Anyone has them?
I tried on the Grey/Palmgreen KSO in 41 and it was a perfect fit for me like a second skin. Shuld i orded Black KSO? Are they the same or still smaller? If smaller, is the length smaller too?? Or just the tightness?

I got some black Entradas yesterday and while trying them on I definitely noticed a size difference between the black and the other colours. The 37 black didn't feel very different from the 36 cream/black, but when I tried on a 37 Alitza grey/rose, it was significantly bigger.
