Added a pair of black Classics (brand new in box!) and a pair of lightly used black Treks last week...

I just added Spyridons LS military green from eBay. My Treksports are starting to age, and they will be on bike duty from now on. 22 Vffs, 30 minimalist pairs.

Just ordered up a pair of Shamma Warriors in size 9.(the same size as my Xeroshoes.)

I'll let you know what I think when I get them.

My Speed XCs,which I bought back in October 2012...are wearing out.

I need a new waterproof pair of FiveFingers to replace my beloved Speed XCs.

Any idea when the Bikila Evo WP is being released?

I can't say that I share your experience regarding the toe pockets.  I am wearing my KSO EVO now, and the toes appear to be the same length as any other pair of M42 VFFs that I own.

The toes in my KSO EVOs (M46) are the same length as my EL-Xs.

As compared to my bikila ls they are short

Have you check out Lems. The Nine2Five and Boulder might work but, I'm guessing you ruled them out, as they have been reviewed on the site. I have the Nine2Five in black for work and they have a decent, mid-to-majority, barefoot feel. I would also check out some models by Teva and Patagonia...I can't remember their names, though.

Abebe Bikila won the 1960 Rome Olympics Marathon completely barefoot. It was mostly concrete, tar etc. (Hard surfaces). I hate treadmills in general, but if you don't mind running on them, barefoot should be fine. Maybe don't do it at a gym, you might get kicked out for it being "unhygienic" or something along those lines.

Can you, yes....  Should you for mileage or normal routine, debatable.....  I do when the weather isn't cooperating and I feel the need to run or walk...  It is hard for me to get proper form without a steeper incline.  The biggest negative is that you are not using all the muscles needed to carry your body mass as you would on varying terrain.  It can lead to strains or other problems when you do decide to enjoy nature.  As with any barefoot adventures, read your skin and build up your distance as some belts are pretty abrasive.  Again, can you...  Yes, but in my opinion not for the "long term"... 

If you smell something burning look down as it is most likely your feet Wink

Thanks for the replies.

I went to the store today and tried them on. In the end I went with the KMDs because the sole felt most like the Xero shoes I have been using.  I'm sure they'll perform beautifully.

edit: Took em for their maiden voyage, part on road, part off and indeed they perform really well. a lot more secure than the Xero's thats for sure. I'll just keep the Xero's for Summertime roadrunning and the KMDs for everything else Tongue
