So I'm looking at finally gettin around to buying some VFFs as I have someone able to modify them to accomodate my mutant toes.
I've noticed this spanish company called Tradeinn have a decent selection on their Runnerinn site with some pretty decent discounts. A £23 pound discount on a pair of speeds for instance and they have them in my size.
But I found myself wondering if the classic speed had been discontinued as I don't see it on Vibrams own site. Or if the retailer is even legit as I can't find them on the distributor/store list, although Vibrams do seem to be quite terrible at keeping their sites up to date.

So anyone done business with them before or know if the Speeds are no longer on the market?

I've been looking to find out if this seller is legit

Also has the classic Speed been discontinued or not? as that would pretty much spell it out with certainty.

Try soft star shoes!  The definitely have women's ballet flats, they go up to size 12.  And if someone wanted it bigger, I'm sure that should make it bigger.  I haven't tried their ballet flats, but I'm happy enough with their merry janes.  They're not super formal, but close enough to get away with it in an office.   Also try their runamoc dash in all black, it's pretty innocuous.

I have been trying to get a pair of Trek Sports in 46. Every time I checked in the US site 46s weren't available. Now no sizes are available. So I gave up and ordered another pair of KSOs, which wasn't my first choice because they were a very painful break in for me.

I got my new pair and fortunately the new pair have been a easy break in this time. A few weeks later I got a email with KSOs at $25.00 including shipping. Despite being dead broke I ordered another pair. After getting those I came home to yet another pair.

When I checked my email Vibram have notified me they had sent them as a thank you gift. Nice I thought, but getting home this weekend I have another email notifying me that they have sent me yet another pair. I'm really worried Vibram is empting their warehouse because they are shutting down. Does anybody have any info on what is going on?

This is a reply I posted on Facebook why I wear Vibrams:

They weren't found false, they haven't be proven one way or another. I was born with a deformed pelvis. My left hip is 9mm higher then my right. and my legs were severely in turned. I straighten my feet by concentrating on holding them outward when I was a kid. Both sides of my family are prone to have hammer toes as well. These shoes cause you to walk on the front of your feet vs heel first which is how people walk in regular shoes. I used to use a heel lift and tore out the outer sides of my shoes. Also when I landed flat foot I would rack myself. I would constantly sprain my ankles. After wearing these for 3 years now my toes have straitened out and have nearly doubled in length. My knee and ankle pain are mostly gone. I have greater stability and balance. My lower legs and feet look totally fit. I still have problems standing still but now can walk over 6 miles and can stay on my feet for over a hour.

Hi! I am having some serious problems finding shoes that don't KILL my feet and thought that the genius collective of the internet might be able to help me. Shoes have always been a huge problems for me. For most of my life I just thought that everyones feet hurt all the time. And then I discovered fivefingers which were better but not perfect. (My pinky toes are too long.) Once I started wearing vivobarefoots a few years ago I finally found out what it is like to wear shoes that truly fit. I can hike for hours and my feet feel like I just woke up. Smiley 

I usually wear a size 10.5-11 women's wide/43. (I live in the US) Most women's wides are still too narrow/small for me so I just wear men's vivos and everything is dandy. The problem is that I just started working in an office and now need cute dress shoes to go with skirts/dresses. Most of the women's vivos only come up to a size 42. I bought the jing jings in 43 and they are still too small. I've been wearing them just to get by but my feet hurt so much at the end of the day. I have tried ordering about 25 pairs of shoes from other brands on Zappos and NOTHING fits.

I am looking for 1) leather dress boots 2) ballet flats. There must be no heal/arch. Any suggestions? Thoughts?

Thanks soooo much for any help. I feel like I'm going crazy over here. I can't be the only woman out there with larger/wide feet.
