Great website and discussion board.

I too, have done some research on VFF's and just ordered my first pair today! I've been battling some lingering hip pain and I'm eager to see how I react to the VFF's.

Does anyone know how many miles you can put on a pair of VFF's before needing to change them out? Are they similar to running shoes in that sense?

Thanks!

Welcome to the boards!

I have over 350miles on my pair of classics since the spring.  Aside from some wear on the fabric between the toes, they look pretty much brand new.  You can see my post in the repair/mod section.  The soles have very very little wear.  I can't really compare to traditional running shoes, as I never owned a pair.  I've only ever run in cleats, wrestling shoes, and barefoot.

Welcome!  Smiley

I don't know about the mileage (it probably depends on the kinds of surfaces you prefer to run on) but VFFs ought to last longer than standard running shoes, because you only have to worry about the sole wearing through - there's no padding or stabilizers to break down.
