How tight are the komodos?
They seem to be loosening up a bit. I haven't been wearing them much, but have worn them a few times with my lightweight injinjis (instead of mid weights) and that seems to help.
I think they're getting a bit looser, but that could be the socks. I'll wear them a bit more and report back with my normal mid weight socks.

Unfortunately the rubber has expanded and the fabric has slightly shrunk (visible in the first pic).

Maybe they got their wish of seeing Preikestolen two weeks ago and have now moved onto to the next life..




I'm thinking of just getting the el-x for running. I'd really miss the komodo.... I should probably wear them around to see if I can stretch them.

I've washed my red Sprints at least twenty times and never had an issue, but they were particularly smelly so I decided to wash them and my Komodos in 60C (140F) in the washer and they didn't do too well.

The red sprints are completely ruined.
The komodos have no visual damage other than the yellow becoming more dull, but they feel tremendously tight - I will probably have to get rid of them. Sad
They are on the left here next to my KSO Treks.





Any suggestions on fun things to do with dead vibrams?

How much does it break in? Does it eventually compare to nicer heel cups, or does it just slightly improve?

Has anyone had a similar experience with the heal cup on the Vivobarefoot Ra? There is 0 padding around the heel (on the side of the shoe near the ankle) which makes it very rigid and uncomfortable.

Does this break in over time? I'm going to return them otherwise.

I really like my Trek Sports for hiking. Easy to clean!

I've seen multiple people wearing FiveFingers on Survivor this season.  Yay for free advertising.
Ya - there are at least 3 people wearing them.

The pain between my toes has mostly gone away now. I haven't felt it in a few days and I wear them everyday (alternating between the black and brown pair usually).

EDIT: OH GAWD REI is out of stock of the black ones! One store still has a pair! I must stop there on the way back this weekend!
11  General Category / Birthdayshoes.com General Discussion / Re: Bormio: most comfortable VFF out of the box on: January 17, 2012, 12:49:11 AM
Ya, this^

I'm still experiencing some discomfort between my toes on the left foot, but it is only when I walk a lot and it is seemingly getting better.
12  General Category / Birthdayshoes.com General Discussion / Re: Bormio: most comfortable VFF out of the box on: January 06, 2012, 12:00:38 AM
The leather is exactly the same.
Hmm you may be right. The presentation is of a much more plush leather though.

I do have one minor complaint: on my left foot the part between the toe pockets sort of annoys in between my toes, but that may be something that will go away with wear.

Will definitely be ordering more.

Does the leather seem noticeably different compared to Trek LS? Are you sure you didn't mean KSO Trek?
Yes. The leather is very different. I returned 2 pair of Trek LS (black and tan). The leather was no where near as plush. Plus the laces bothered me and the biggest issue was my ankles rubbing.

I love my Bormios. Wore them to work today and they are absolutely comfortable. I'm thinking about picking up another 2 pairs (black and tan) because they were discontinued.
14  General Category / Birthdayshoes.com General Discussion / Bormio: most comfortable VFF out of the box on: January 03, 2012, 10:04:37 PM
I just got my 2 pairs of Bormios and I have to say they are ridiculously comfortable. Seemingly by far the most comfortable out of any of my pairs:
Classic, Sprint(x2), KSO, KSO Trek Sport.

I feel like I should order another 2 pairs just for the future... I'll give these a few days first though.

They also look REALLY nice. Like super duper nice - Best office setting by far. The leather is much more of a true leather compared to Trek LS - smooth not fuzzy.
I'll have to add some pics later.
15  General Category / Vibram Five Fingers Sizing and Fit Discussion / Trek LK Ankle Rubbing on: December 16, 2011, 09:37:52 PM
My Trek LS' rub on the bottom of my ankles on the outside of my feet. It seems as if the shoe should come up about a centimeter less. The leather is very tough - I've tried to massage it to loosen up, but no go.

Have other people experienced this? I literally took my shoe off after work and walked the quarter mile to my car because it was so painful.
