hi there,

i have come across this board just over the weekend. this board and the shoes reviews articles on the main site made me order kso's off the leftlane sports website. while i'm eagerly awaiting for them to arrive, i realized the near by Sail store carries the some of the models, so i got myself the komodo ls. So far so good, i like them a lot - the style, the comfort, the other benefits which i'm yet to experience Smiley.

I had already got an issue though with the lace system though, going to post a message in the general board for it.

Cheers,
Mike

Hi! I am in Montreal and was in Toronto from Apr.14th to 16th to see Oprah and I saw some models in the Atmosphere store in the Eaton Center at Queen Street/Yonge! I think Bikilas, Seeyas, Jayas, possibly Spyridons, Treksports... maybe others. I didn't need anyting so I didn't notice them all. Welcome to the forum and to the addiction!!

Welcome aboard! You'll be able to enjoy your VFFs a lot more now that it's finally spring for us Canadians. I'm out in Alberta, and we are just starting to get the warm weather.

For you it'll be pretty easy to find vffs around toronto. Atmosphere, independent running stores and even sportchek carry them. Atmosphere carries a few more models than the average store. If you find a good local independent store, they are usually awesome to deal with. There is one I go to in Edmonton that is fantastic and has a huge selection of minimalist footwear.

Cheers!

rookhoe, jmijares, PB Junkie, The Yeti - thank you!

i'm enjoying them very much, just need to keep reminding myself taking it easy as far as building the distance while getting straightening up the feet muscles that were almost never used to avoid injures Wink .... i'm starting slow, but can feel how my achilles getting slightly tense.


thanks!
Mike
