Hi,

It's for variety as far as I am concerned. I would find it way too boring to wear the same few pairs everyday. I also love all the lively colors of the Sprints and Classics, so I had to purchase all of them!  Wink

As of December this was my little pile. Too lazy to count them. Rimini LR, Grados and Carezza included. I guess I just needed the Nizza but I wasn't able to get a pair since they decided to not make it before they even let people see what they thought of it. But there again that's Vibram for us.
Now I have double VFFs. And still buying more, about 6 or 7 pairs coming in the upcoming 2 weeks. I guess am sort of a freak? Well also my husbands birthday is at the end of the month. My oldest Son's Birthday the week after and 2 weeks later my second son, and 2 days after my birthday.
So we all have birthdays in the lapse of 28 days and we are all Leo's and minimalist wearers and we always get each other new pairs for birthdays regardless of the so called "Birthday Present"😁
Idk. Whatever lol.

Great variety! Very colorful! I have a bunch of Classics and Sprints, but only a few other types. 21 pairs is all I need though, I am just waiting for a good waterproof option.

Walking in Classics, biking in Treksports, running in Bikilas.

From what I've read, VFF generally aren't good at making cuts in the grass. I had considered the komodosports though. Do you own either and do this?

I have the Bikilas LS, not the Komodos. But the Komodos were designed for that kind of activity.

I believe both Bikilas LS and Komodosports would work for all these purposes.

It says it has arch support, so no, not my thing.

Hi,

I have 21 Vff's and 8 other minimalist shoes. So I wear them a lot, as soon as I need to walk a bit or run. And I workout barefoot. However, I have about 40 pairs of fabulous high heels sandals, pumps and boots. I wear them anytime I don't have a ton of walking to do and it's fine.

Thanks so much! That catalog is great. The hemps are nice in black, but my eyes are on the Bikila Evo WP!! I have been waiting for those since the Lontra which I never quite trusted enough to purchase. But these seem to be what I have been looking for for winter....

Lontras seem to have all the qualities you are looking for.

For me it's Bikilas all the way. I am starting my fourth year in my first pair, and bought the Bikila LS to replace them eventually since the LS were becoming hard to get in purple. I tried the LS too and like them even better than the Bikilas, lighter and slightly more flexible upper. Can't wait to burn a hole in my Bikilas (not about to though, with good form they last forever...)

I really have to agree with you tg3895.

I am so glad! It's a completely different way of running from the usual. Basically the propulsion is done from under your body towards the back by your glutes, instead of starting it in front of you, hence the shorter strides. Make sure not to lean forward either, stay centered. It can be a full foot landing OR your heel can touch the ground a tiny fraction of a second after your forefoot. And it should be the softest landing you can manage. You'll get the hang of it after a while. It's still a challenging way to run for your calves, so after a long run it is normal to be a bit sore the next day. But no pain, just healthy soreness.
