This may seem like a weird question, but my husband wants a new pair of slip on shoes to replace his Vivobarefoot Dharmas. I'm very anti-VBF due to poor quality control and customer service so I'm looking for a similar shoe from a better company. I know my Lems Primals slip on easily with the laces tied, but I imagine the cloth fabric has more give than the leather.

These do not have any added value that I can see and I don't even care about the thickness of the soles as long as it's flexible enough.  There is no women's version...  They look like shoes men can buy in regular stores...

1.  The foot shape is not great, it's similar to how many non minimalist shoes are already shaped.  It doesn't look like there's room for the big toe to be straight and for all the toes to have wiggle room.

2.  The toes are weirdly up turned.  It's neither healthy nor attractive.  It looks like a regular run of the mill sneaker.

Since these look just like shoes men can already get in regular stores, what's the point?

Happened to see these. To me, the soles look too thick. What do you think?

I like the Treksports, stiffer than some models (sprints etc) but still good feedback, I like them for trails and muddy areas. They work well for casual too, very comfortable.

So after the debacle with a set of too big Speeds and Amazon I've finally gotten my refund out of them.

But now I find myself wondering what to get. Originally my plan was to get the KSO treksport since they're now in stock on this seller in the colour and size I want (black, size M40){M4485}

But then I noticed the Komodo Sport LS and having read its review I was wondering if it would be worth paying the extra to go for these instead. {M3601}

Going by the review on the site they're pretty comparable in many ways but I was wondering if anyone could say which would be better for casual use. I live in a mostly rural part of England.

i'll try them around the house for a whle then. I like the design and the new sole is very nice, they seem a little low on the heel though, and I prefer the more covered upper of the KSO. If the new KSO didn't have laces I would buy them, but I don't want laces on this type of footwear. For laces I'll buy Inov8 Xbare. The EL-X will probably be good for running, I have been using sprints for all my running, but I'm on my last pair and the sole is getting a little thin. I was considering the SeeYa for running, but that seems to have been discontinued too.

They break in...  I wore them around the house, took them off, wore them, and took them off for weeks debating whether or not to return them...  They are now my go to shoes....  If the new KSO Evo's are similar, my reserve stash of boxed KSO's will soon hit the classifieds. Shocked

I tried a pair of EL-X today, the fit is horrible, the toes feel really tight and the pockets are shorter, makes it hard to move. The sole was nice, but overall not impressed. So it seems that everything else no has laces which is a bit of a joke. Seems like Vibram have lost the plot a bit.

Yup, that is the brand of "over boots" that I wear over my VFF's in deep snow/mud.  I've had them for about 4 years, but they don't see that much usage like my Oashatoes do for work.  As for the heal on the Oashatoes, you really don't even know it is there.  It flattens right out.
