I've had my VFF sprints for almost 2 months.  Great to find this site.  I just started running in them on my treadmill (18" of snow).  I've put about 14 miles in (about 5 miles each run) and some blistering on my forefoot.  I guess this is just an adjustment period.  Has anyone had any running experience with the KSO's vs. Sprint?  I'll check the rest of the forum.

Welcome! 

I run in Sprints, but I've never tried the KSOs. I haven't had any problems with them (other than VFF Calves).  Which part of your foot is blistered?

Glad you like this site!
Sure, there is always an adjustment period depending on your foot usage before VFFs. Sore calves and blisters on the toes can happen, but 2 months seems like a good enough introduction period.

It's kind of strange.  It feels like a blister after about 3 miles into my run.  I blistered the area while doing a 20 mile training run in foot prisons (nike vomeros) about a month and a half ago.  It healed.  As you can see it doesnt look like a blister.  I might wear some injinis for awhile.

oh... I'm running on a treadmill (snow on the streets).  It might be the foot strike repetition that you don't get outdoors.

I can't see it very well, I'm guessing it's a deep blister where the fluid is in at the base of the epidermal skin. I got it on my big toe right under the thick skin in the 1st week of my VFF use, it took a month for it to grow out but it only hurt for a week.

Looking at the picture it seems that your toes are used to being close together, I wondered how easy it is to put your sprints on? Cheesy

That feels right.  It is under some thick skin.  Close toes?  You should have seen them two months ago   Shocked.  The VFF's have done wonders.

Welcome to the forum. My first thought was "I wonder if he owns a Mac..."

Why a Mac? Don't worry, sometimes I'm pretty ignorant about some things.

I'm going to go with his name being SteveJ, which could be Steve Jobs one of the apple founders.
