Spent yesterday walking around the SS Great Britain http://www.ssgreatbritain.organd Bristol docks  barefoot.

Spent 30 minutes in the Roman Baths in Bath today before one of the staff insisted barefoot was 'against policy'. Of course the hundreds of people in flip-flops were in no danger at all from uneven floors. Wonder how naked Romans managed.

22 VFF and 11 non VFF, 33 total pairs of minimalist footwear

Added a newer pair of Khaki/Sand/Black Classics to the mix.  My other pair was a very used pair off of eBay and this pair is in pristine condition.

23 VFF and 11 non VFF, 34 total pairs of minimalist footwear

I forgot about a pair of size 42 Vivobarefoot Oaks in canvas that I purchased on eBay a while back.  They are a little snug.  Might have to take out the insoles.  I also recently scored a tremendous deal on a used pair of Vivobarefoot Gobi in tan. 

23 VFF, 13 non VFF, 36 total pairs of minimalist footwear.

I decided to give Sprints another try, this time a size larger than before.  Turns out they fit great.  I'm not super stoked about the strap across the top of the foot, but having the same sole as Classics, they are a keeper.  I bought a pair of Castlerock/Navy Sprints on eBay, thus bringing my VFF total up to 24 VFF, 13 non VFF and 37 total pairs of minimalist footwear.

The Lontras are the model I use for winter running. I've used them the last two winters without any real problems. I did scrape a small hole in the upper of one shoe when I tripped on a snow covered pothole. I painted on a small amount of liquid tape and all was well. I started out running in Flows. The thing about the Flows is as you found out, they are not water proof. However, they work just like a wet suit. Shoveling snow isn't an activity that will allow your feet to create enough heat to keep your feet warm. However, running usually is. I ran the first 4 winters in Flows. As long as I kept moving, my feet never got freezing cold even when wet. However, if I stopped for more than a few minutes it was very difficult to regain the lost heat.

Unless it is below about 45F the Lontras will be way too HOT. I use Lontras for my winter runs. I don't bother breaking them out until the temperature is below 45F. For normal temperatures I would recommend the Spyridon as the best hiking model.

I have the SeeYas which don't fit...they apparently run small but I didn't know this.  I tried the Spirydon but didn't like how they felt.  The Bikilas fit like a glove.  I will run up to a half marathon distance in them and do mostly street running.  Also will run my first winter with cold in them....moved north from south Texas...not sure if that should weigh in what I buy.  Leary on the EVOs because the fit sounds so different than the original Bikilas.  Bummed they messed with a great thing!

Never tried, but I doubt you'd get a permanent stretch due to the elasticity of the fabric.  You might get the black bands to crack as well.  Hard to say.

I'm finding them very tight across the top of my  foot, uncomfortably so. Obvious answer would be a pair of KSO Evo, but I'm not that keen on the flat sole and the way the upper tends to bunch a bit just the below the heel on me. I'd rather try a pair of velcro seeya's

Anyone tried a shoe stretcher on EL-X before I go out and buy one?
