It's strange that my w42 bikilas are just perfect and really longer than these w42 spyridon MRs. I've managed to make it not hurting in one day, bit it's still really tight. I've tried to strech the big toe overnight with a hairbrush and other things inside. Also a hair drier to warm up the rubber and it seems that it's slowly getting longer Smiley the bikila is still some mm's longer but i think this will be a good shoe once it loosen a bit (which i hope) and it need some more streching too. I also have an M41 Kso which is the very same size as this w42 bikilas also needs streching Cheesy it's maybe a little bit wider than the w42 spyridon mr but the length is the same.
I thing these spyridon mr's runs smaller.

Aaha, now i see that size chart and on that, the Spyridons really run 1 size smaller Shocked the chart on the vibram site is different Shocked (http://us.vibram.com/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-VibramUS-Library/default/dwc35ecf5e/images/Vibram_AdultSizingChart_Update.png)

How much is the difference lengthwise? I've ordered a W42 Spyridon mr which is too short and I wonder how much the M42 is longer or should I get M43? Or somehow lengthen the big toe a bit? On the right foot it's almost perfect, it hurts a bit just on the left.
OR maybe i should keep it and somehow break it in (maybe put something inside overnight?)


M41 would be the size in between a W42 and M42.  Reference the chart in the link above.  The lengths have not changed, styles still vary slightly in their fit.  They should not hurt.

I've never washed my Treks, but I do wear socks with them.

I've gone through 3 pairs of leather KSO treks. The first two the leather on the insoles has completely worn away from them getting gummed up constantly, they would feel like wearing greasy socks.  The goo would form up in black blobs on the leather and I would try to scrape it away with a blunt tool only to see the leather disintegrating with it.
Now I think it's a combination of leather fragments, glue, and the evo foam or whatever it's called. not to mention the fabric between most of the toes has separated from the soles.
Now on my 3rd pair i'm runnimng into the same problem with the leather insoles. they stick to my feet and cause my feet to be all dyed brown and i'm gouging the leather again simply by trying to lightly scrape out the black goo.

The leather on the insole feels great at first. But it is hard to keep clean and dry and maintain without it getting gummed up and all torn apart. How do I extract all the sweat and goo out of the leather without ruining it?
I don't mind discoloration of the leather, i just hate when it gets so soggy with sweat and dirt that simply wiping it causes it to fall apart and rip and otherwise get embedded in my feet.

Throwing them in the laundry only seems to wash out the color and make the leather more crispy (without using dryer ofc).

If you're merely interested in getting active, a well made cheap pair of ordinary trainers/sneakers that fit you are probably as good as anything at $100.

If you're really interested in Vibrams, find out your size (which might mean getting into a bricks-and-mortar shop), then look on auction sites (eg. eBay) for nearly-new pairs that people have "had bought for me, but can't get on with".

Just getting active after 15 years of lazy and excuses. I have started to lightly get back into activity with hiking, walking around the neighborhood and exercise at home.  Ultimately i intend to participate in obstacle races. I have gotten very interested in the five finger style shoes as the natural movement makes perfect sense to me. My main issue is low budget. I am a lowly security guard and my wife works minimum wage retail and we have 4 kids. I rapidly noticed that eating right and staying fit is not a pore mans venture. I especially have a rough time spending $100 for shoes that aren't a daily wear kind of thing like my new balance shoes.  Any tips or advice on how i can get my feet into something like these without having to plan it out in a budget over a few months?   I think I am at the perfect point to retrain my body to these since i am just getting started but can't afford it.

Same reaction I have to this crap at work or even while performing the task....  Been at it for years, and did it as a child...  Sweeping ones eyes every now and then to see what is in the path ahead and relying on reflexes goes a long way...  One might just enjoy it.  If foot pads are developed and proper form is utilized (placement and no twist) most pieces of glass, thorns, and other sharps will not penetrate/cut to the point of injury.  Are there times I put coverings on my feet, yeah I'm not stupid...  I can also say that in all my years doing it bare, I've never had to use the med kit I carry around...  

This article sums up the same society that buys a high powered rear wheel drive car and thinks "I'm a drifter like on Fast n Furious".  They proceed to wrap it around a pole or put it into a tree and then blame the car.  Roll Eyes  

GO NAKED, FROM THE ANKLES DOWN ANYWAY. Grin

Five Fingers return to the small screen in this commercial for the American Express Blue Cash Everyday Card!

Did you know you've been wearing "creepy gloves" on your feet?
