My wife--Just ordered her second pair
A friend at work
Two guys at my gym

I get more of the "Hey how do you like those/I've been wanting to try them" vs "Dude! What in the world do you have on your feet?!" = Progress

Police locker room.  Not strange to me but maybe to someone else.

Still ... for me, nothing beats really bare feet on grass, or warm dry soil. (Actually, on wooden floors amd carpets, too - I am barefoot most of the time at home, though I often wear slippers in the kitchen, which has tiled floor).
....I thought we were talking about VFF guilty pleasures.

I expect the komodo sport to suffer from the bad quality control issues of all recent vibrams (i'm talking to you bikila). Be sure to buy local to minimize return shipping costs.
...Yeah I don't look forward to this possibility.

I was a runner pre-VFF but its amazing the difference in the strength of my feet.  I think its really interesting that although my bunions are still there Sad Sad , my big toes have really straightened out.
....I see what you are talking about.  Also, the tan lines.  Classics?

My arch has pulled up higher resulting in me going down half a shoe size.

That pic is disgustingly BADASS!!

I think my feet look about the same.  Maybe a slight difference in the arches, but the main thing I've noticed is that my ankles seem to ALWAYS be swollen.  But they aren't swollen, they just appear that way.

You know, the Classics/Sprints/KSO's are nice and all for the "barefoot" experience. But, now that VFF has seen great success in these shoes, I don't see a problem with venturing into territory that has long been dominated by Nike/Adidas/Reebok etc.  I wear alll types of shoes for different sports/athletic activities (Tennis, cycling, beach lounging).  I am totally pumped about the Komodos because they will potentially replace some of the other shoes in my line-up and give me a more healthy platform (heel to toe drop/toe flex) and besides, they look BADASS!!  The afore-mentioned "original" finger shoes aren't going anywhere.  This is just a way for VFF to compete in a different (better?) way with the big boys.  IMHO.

I kicked my dog's rear achilles? tendon when he cut in front of me on a run.  My toe was screaming!  I taped it to the next toe for 3 days and didn't run on it for a week.

Well--Picture a standard 5K with electronic chip timing, add goofy costumes, mud pits, brick walls and other obstacles.

I had to be patient with my first pair of KSO's.  It used to take about 5 minutes per foot.  Just the other day though, I slipped my feet into them as if they were flip flops and just had to pull up the heel.  It helps too if your feet are clean and dry.

KSO's will give you more ground feel (similar to barefoot running)...But if you want to feel more like you are wearing running shoes then probably the Bikila is the way to go.

So my life has been continually changing since the shoe conversion  Smiley  I did the Gladiator Mud Run in Lake Elsinore, CA over the weekend (something I barely considered doing before VFF's came into my life).  I ran in my KSO's and they rocked!  Didn't see any other 5's but I heard a few whispers from people saying, "He's got the shoes I want".  My results: Overall-111 of 1390, Men-97 of 689, Age (35-39)-9 of 94...I ran a 9:06 pace.  Disappointed with the pace but considering obstacles, not bad I guess.
