Ironically, my longest-lasting VFFs are bikilas, which are now 2 months old and have outlasted 2 prs of KSOs, 1 pr KSO Treks, 1pr of Flows (didn't even wear them--defective upon arrival). I have discovered in my short journey through these various models that they all SUCK, with respect to pathetic build quality. Besides the Bikilas, I currently have a pair of Trek Sports (about 3 wks old) and other than crappy stitching on the straps, they appear to be solid enough to make it past 90 day warranty---Wow!
In a perfect world, Vibram would get their act together and manufacture KSO's that don't self-destruct after one week. I'd buy numerous pairs because they are comfortable and as other's have mentioned, they generate loads of WTF reactions--and make people laugh, which is a good thing. Is there anything made in China that isn't deadly or defective? Maybe Vibram needs to consider a continental shift in production.
What do you do with your shoes?
hahahahahaha. Actually laughed out loud at that one Zephyr...
