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

 I agree, its just a style been running for 2 years now.

I have never worn a sole out on any pair of VFF's...  Over 1000 miles on a pair of KSO's before the fabric between the toes came apart to the point I couldn't patch them anymore.  Close to 600 miles on my KSO EVO's with no visible wear yet...  It is all based on form and breaking form that causes wear.   

thats so awesome!! its one of the reasons i swapped to these over regular old running shoes those those just dont last.

maybe when my right foot decides to behave i'll have better luck. its annoying tho my right foot is a hair smaller then the left so some pairs of shoes dont work out as well for me vs others I love the v-runs there nice to run in but my foot slips aorund int hem some i compensate for this and it shows on the sole of the shoe. the other vibrams i have are not as bad tho my bikilias where. after 200 miles that right shoe was getting pretty thin in spots but the left still had a fair amt more life.

I think as my form and techinique improve i'll have more and more luck.

noticed on vibrams website when searching for a store near you cabelas is now a five finger dealer. it appears they dont have many models available in the stores tho yet.

I'm really hoping they do get all the models soon. I have a store near me but no other stores near me that have five fingers so trying them on is a bit of a challenge for me. I have to order and return it'd be nice to have a place to just go try them on.

rex_kwon_do. there are some folks like you that get insane amount of uses out of varous shoes. and your probably right its probably from picking the feet up promptly. I notice my left shoe always outlasts the right. and often wonder if i could get the right to do what the left does geeze just how long woudl these things last?

BUT
before zero drop and forefoot running my right shoe wore about the same as it does now to some degree but with some more heal wear. My left too but my left the outside corner of the heal would always wear down so i'd end up with like a wedge under my heel that outside edge would wear down. This would usually occur with say 6 months of wear on say a pair of dress shoes. sneakers it wouldnt be so visibly obvious as the heal of the sole would crush more then it would wear.

so walking and running i'd be wallking with feet tthat where like sitting lower on the outside of the heals due tot he wear on the shoe. end up with painful ankles etc...

just something about how my range of motion is.

Being flat in a zero drop shoe and working with forefoot / flat landing seems to really help tho.

The soles on my VFFs really don't wear out.  I find that by picking my feet up when I run and walk, there is very little wear on the tread, but the uppers are where I get the most wear and tear: holes in the toe pockets, separation from the sole, and seams coming undone.  The sole on my KSOs did rip from putting them in the washing machine, I had a pair of Treks I wore daily for years that transitioned from my work shoes to trail shoes, and they eventually got a hole in the sole after about 1,000 miles on them.  That's it since about 2006. 

FWIW, my favorite pair is the Bikila LS, and I have two pairs.

just a quick update I got 130 miles on a pair of v-runs my right shoe has considerable more wear then the left. I think its because the shoes are a hair big and i get some slippage that i compensate for and my right foot also happens to be a hair smaller then my left.

I have a pair of KMD LS that i'm also wearing that have 85 miles on them both have pretty even wear and hardly any wear to them at all at 85 miles i'm impressed with them.

I really can't decide what shoe I like most out of what i've worn so far thats working for me anyhow, KSO's, KMD LS, and the V-runs. They all have there ups and does I guess. I dont wear the KSO's as much becuase the roads here are awful and there not always that comfy on the rougher roads tho they probably over one of the best rides otherwise. I think the v-runs would be dang near perfect if the sizeing was a bit more spot on. I dont think i can really blame vibram here. If i went smaller they'd be way to tight on the top of my foot. The KMD's are not bad and I have another pair that i wear for my every day shoe.

So far for me tho the Bikilia and the V-runs seem to have the fastest sole wear. I do ponder not bothering with them anymore because of that and how the fit is never that great with them. I do like them otherwise however.

curious anyones input for the merrel trail glove vs the vibram 5 fingers specifically for running but any opinion is welcome. I keep toying with getting a pair. On some rougher surfaces I figure it might be good or last longer? but I dunno my KMD ls five fingers are working out great on the rough roads and lasting fairly well compaired to other vibrams i've ran in. I swear the roads i run on are damn near like trail runnig there such a mess half the time.
