SeeYa's two pairs laced and velcro didn't last long - couple of month on concrete pavement - wore out near the pinkie . I think it might be my stile of running though

On a side note PRIOR to vibrams my shoes never lasted much more then 200 miles. the soles where always fine but the coushion was SHOT and i'd have awful foot pain or my gait would be affected and i'd end up with knee or ankle pain or something.

I will say with the vibrams while they may wear thin and even inconsistent for me at times i'm seeing no matter what at the end of the day my foot is still firm and flatly planted on the groudn and i cant be happier about that. coushion was my nightmere in other shoes.

What models tend to last longer on the sole vs others for you guys?

I got a pair of bikilias with 200 miles on them I'd say in another 50 i'd wear a hole in them. at least the right foot anyhow. Tho i retired this pair due to them being too tight on the top of my foot.

I notice the KMD 's have a thicker tougher sole it seems but i wonder do they last longer? I like this sole on the rough roads and such by me and cant help but wonder if it'll last longer.

KSO's I have have a super thin sole from the start I gotta wonder how long they will last but i dont wear them for running very often so it doesnt matter to me.

SeeYa Ls' seem to have a really thick sole as well tho I dont wear these anymore.

But regardless I'm curious what ones seem to last the longest and what are the pro s and cons?

for what its worth i ran in those KMD LS's relaced today was great just did 3.25 miles went really well. I think they are a hair small to be honest but I dunno they felt great while i ran in them so maybe they just need a bit of break in time. I got another pair in a diff color gonna relace those too! i got lucky scored this pair for 40 bucks Smiley

yeah well i dunno that i coulda figured it out without being able to ask folks here. My biggest issues where essentially over striding with a forefoot string and those bikilias being too tight on the top of my foot. sure lots of other issues popped up along the way as my feet adapted and such.

I got a fun one going now my left foot seems to be rubbing the seem of the shoe a bit too much. its not a huge issue yet.

tommorrow I'm going to run in a pair of KMD Ls's that I relaced so they would give me the room i need on the top of my foot i'm super eager to see how that goes going to try it out on a short run to be safe and see how it goes. tho i've run in them before with the laces tigher and had minimal issues so I thnk having the extra room will just sweeten the deal with these.

thanks rex yeah i've checked that out before.

I"m doing great now 40+ miles a week. I do still have some minor stuff going on but I think its mainly just typical wear and tare of running and well further refining my form. Some stuff i had back when i was a heal striker i wonder if it will ever go away lol.

I'm gingerly / lazily working back up to my 50 mile per week avg. trying not to go too crazy dont wanna hurt myself but also i wont lie its partly laziness as well.

My speed is coming back as well tho for my usual training i tend to just go slow and steady focus on form as best i can. but every now and then i open it up and go nuts and i seem to be just as fast as I always was. I hope to one day maybe even be faster as a result of changing form and shoes. but time will tell.
