Boo!  Sad Black only, probably get a pair anyway as I've just picked up some single use ones one ebay. I don't really like the EL-X - too tight across the top for me. The open tops of the Classics are much better.

My denim/yellow ones are still my favourite pair. They were a europe only colour. Stopped running in them now to try and have them last a bit longer. Easy to kick off and stick in the cargo shorts pocket to go barefoot - another way of keeping them going a bit longer!

I am putting this out there more as an FYI or a public service announcement. 

It is against the law to "borrow" images from this site to use them for anything, unless you have gotten permission from the owner of the photographs/site AKA Justin Owings.  I used the term borrow, as I do believe that no one that frequents this site is intentionally doing so with a malicious intent, however in all reality it is stealing.  I am bringing this up because on more than one occasion I have stumbled upon eBay listings that have used pictures from the main page/reviews of this site as their product images.  When I see this, I alert Justin and he usually contacts the owner of the eBay listing.  If the owner is cooperative and removes the unauthorized used images, then it stops there.  If the person is unresponsive and/or refuses to revise the listing and remove the images, Justin then reports them to eBay for copyright infringement.  If this happens, eBay will remove the listing and if the person is a repeat offender or has given eBay other reasons to be on alert, they may lose their eBay account.

Just putting this out there.  I realize that it is a great big internet out there and many people stumble upon those images that have no affiliation or even knowledge of this site, however if this message stops even one forum member from doing so, then it was time well spent on my part.

Thanks

I've already been in contact with a marketing coordinator at Vibram regarding the anniversary re-release of the classic.  It will be basic boring black.  Sorry to burst your bubble.  I too would love a splash of color between my toes, however it is not going to happen anytime soon on the classic platform.  I also heard a rumor that KSO were also coming back in 2016, again in basic boring black. 

This is great news for anyone that missed out on these models when they were first available.  It's a shame they did not take it a little further and offer some wild, never before seen colors or at least re-release some of the odd original colors that many of us have drooled over int he past glory of old colors thread on this site.

I wish VFF made a shoe without toe pockets but the same everywhere else as their basic EL-X or whatever.

whoa, but not available for sale anywhere online!

So I got the cheap teslas from amazon and after taking out the insoles GREAT SUCCESS! flat bottom and flexible upper that lets my foot spread. It would be nice if they were a tiny bit wider but these are by FAR the closest thing yet.

i hope so, of all the other models, which are really cool, they still dont compare to the comfort, versatility, and awesomeness that was the classic.

Theres a hint on the Vibram facebook page in response to complaints about the lack of Classics that there is 'something special' coming for the 10th anniversary next year.

My prediction. It coincides with Brazil 2016 so...a Classic Olympics reboot!  Smiley Yellow/green Brazilian flag combo, size 44 please.

Looking to get a pair of CVT LS, mostly for travelling, and wondering if anyone can give me an idea on how they size compared to other styles. I seem to fall between 44 and 45
I have so far;
EL-X size 45, super tight both in length and across top of foot. Were bought for travelling but find them too tight to wear for long, could maybe have done with LS version or sized up. Will probably just use them for running to replace the
Classic Olympics (size 44) perfect fit, but just about worn out from running. Expecting holes to appear in soles soon.
Classics (denim.yellow, size 44) still in use but also very worn and too loose to run in now. Just used for walking in. Often take them off and go barefoot to stop any more wear and have them last! Compared to the Olympics they look a size bigger.
Bikila LS (45) - good fit with socks
Spyridion (44) good fit with/without socks
Lontra (45) just a hair too short of perfect with socks,  but still fine. Not too keen on the sole - far too stiff/thick. Winter wear only.
Komodo (45) went in the bin when they fell apart. Good sockless fit.

You do realise that's fightin' talk in here. Smiley

They're not called "Five Fingers" for nothing.

bought some vivobarefoot achilles and evo one sale.

achilles are uncomfortable. Who the hell tested these in the prototype stage? when the toe flexes the plastic upper digs into the top of the foot. wtf.

still waiting on the evo.

also bought the cheap merrel vapor glove chinese knockoffs. Tesla brand on amazon.
