I have done almost everything in them. From church to barefoot skiing. If you think of it, I've probably done it. I wear em practically everyday. Running and walking. I'm crazy bout these shoes and you can hardly ever not find em on my feet.
I've had my sprints for over two years Now. I have over a thousand miles in them and, magically, they still look new. I've done everything from trail running to rock climbing in them. The only way you could tell how old they are is the "soles" are really stiff and the siping on the bottom has been torn. These shoes are amazing and they have held up wonderfully for me.
i wear my sprints everywhere without the strap tightened. i cant say i ever thought of taking the strap off. im savin to buy a pair of kso's very soon. so i very well may just cut the strap off my sprints when i do. theyre two yrs old and have done their time now anyway
nope, cant say i live in hamilton. i live on the southeastern border across from wv. id say slacklining in vff's is easier simply because it gives you more support, but still allows for the freedom and dexterity of going barefoot. i use an old nylon fire rope to slackline, so having something on my feet helps. that rope can get really painful after being on it for a couple hours. lol
