I don't know if they are fake or not but the prices are not that good when you consider shipping on some of them...  I pay $7 to $10 a pair at a brick and mortar store and often have discount coupons for an additional 10% to 15% off.  If I buy them online, it is usually 6pm, Travel Country, and even REI when they are having sales and free shipping.  Check out the link below and they always have coupon codes if you google it.

Good to know. And he is truly gorgeous. But maybe a rescue next time? Just saying. As much as I would love a Bengal cat for example, I can't justify leaving a rescue cat to die if I could take him in. Of course I can't force everybody to do the same, but I am putting the idea outthere as often as I can. Pls don't hate me.

No hate hear either...  We've had our "specialty" breeds, have a wonderful rescue that found his forever home 5 years ago, and also foster/mentor Pit's for our local shelter until they find their forever home.   :-)

As for a size 42 being the same between the sexes, no...  Depending on the style (using the earlier VFF sizing chart) a men's 42 is 10 1/2" to 10 3/4" and a women's is 10 1/8" to 10 3/8"....

I would look at your form and back off a little...  There should be no numbness, pain, or tingling...  Consider these warning signs and negative feedback from your body, listen to it.  If it is painful, it won't be fun for long....  If you go to this point and then try compensating you will be risking additional injury as you are most likely changing your form or shifting weight to muscles that may not be ready for those new stresses either...  Your body is telling you something, listen to it...

I've been looking for a back up pair of Crazy Horse brown ones. They are on "the bay" auction site almost weekly.  I have auto-notification set up that as soon as a pair are listed, I get an email...  Unfortunately, they have been selling for $240.00+... Shocked

Sorry to be blunt, but unless you want to end up injured 4 weeks is not going to happen...  I'd reconsider and perform your run in good ol padded sneakers...  If you really want to follow through with transitioning to minimalist foot coverings, take it SLOW.   

Search on here for TMTS or Too much Too Soon...  For the average person I'd say 4 months isn't realistic based on the number of muscles that need strengthened and time required to learn/adapt form.

There is a wealth of information on here!  I will also say if you take your time, it is a very rewarding and worthwhile path..  Just not a path to take unprepared or without proper preparation....

Sorry for the late posting....  
Here are my "custom" work boots and what they started out as....  These are composite steel toe as well as internal metatarsal protection.
