Same here, maybe there is a problem with your browser ehans, the website looks great from where I am and it could not be easier to see the shoes....  Undecided
2  General Category / General Discussion / Re: For us nothren folk, what do you wear in the winter? on: September 17, 2015, 01:45:07 PM
I wear the Vivobarefoot Boxing Boot and their Off Road Hi, as well as Bikila Evo WP for running.

I like Vivobarefoot shoes when I don't want toe pockets.

They named the Bikila after a Abebe Bikila who ran (and won) the 1960 olympics marathon barefoot.

Those last 3 are nice finds, I'll look on eBay a little more myself...

No surely not normal. I don't see how these could be repaired unfortunately...I don't have the SeeYa, but I know it is especially thin. Coincidence, one of my older models of Classics' sole just happened to become unglued from the upper (on a toe) last night. First time in the 4 years and 22 Vff's. I do wear them a lot and wash them regularly, but I was kind of bummed. I bought Shoe Goo online and I hope I can repair them as they otherwise are in great shape.

My Bikilas EVO WP also ripped right behind the ball of the foot (there is a flex seam there which seems to have been poorly designed), I got them fixed with a piece of leather glued inside this week, I hope they will still be waterproof come winter...

Of course. If it's not completely flat shoes, or actual high heels, so basically just a small heel under an inch and a half, pain starts. Next day I'll be in the early stages of plantar fasciitis.

I am in Canada, Montréal. I don't like the Spyridons either, they just don't fit properly. I loved my Treksports and hiked all the way to the Grand Canyon in them. Now If I hadn't bought those Spyridons I would go for the new Trek Ascent.

Yeah, I am pretty crazy about the Trek Ascent LR, but I just bought Spyridons LR (of which I hate the color and fit) so I can't justify an other hiking shoes. If I had known...

Good to know you guys are also animal lovers. Good luck with your pups and keep rescuing.  Wink

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.

He is magnificent. Such a serious little face. He looks like an old soul. Were you able to make sure that he is not out of a puppy mill but a responsible breeder? Nothing is more important to me in life than the welfare of animals.

Nimue, I am usually W40 in Vff's, also W39 for some. The WP is more than big enough in W40, only a little tight at the toes width wise because of the thick socks, and I have a longer second toe that pushes the end of the toe pocket. The other toes don't touch the end of the pockets.

Sorry Nimue, I don't have the XC. But I wanted to add, I ran yesterday and the toes become numb with cold early on, but they warm up after running continually for about 20 minutes. You won't lose a toe, is what I mean.
