So I spoke to Sean from Vibram Boston today and he told me they completely discontinued the Alitza for good.
The remaining they had were sent to Orva Shoes in NY and they are the only retailer that has the remaining of the production Vibram headquarters had left I suppose and get this which is what kind of makes me sort of upset about it. Only the grey pink and purple Alitzas were discontinued and gotten rid off.
I loved that shoe. Now I can't find it anywhere to have a back up since I always get back ups of every VFF I believe worth having backups for.

So. If anyone here happens to have a Vibram Alitza in Purple/Grey/Pink or just Purple Alitza in size 39 please hit me up! I wanted to post this on the Buy Sell Trade forum but I gather no one ever stops by there anymore.
Or if you happen to know of any other retailers who have these specific colors please let me know.
I'll be eternally grateful.
I have them all except the dark purple and the green and blue ones and not because I don't want to but because Vibrams site is sold out on my size for the green and only China has the Purple ones since Italy discontinued Alitza completely from their online store.😞

Thanks for the heads up in case you happen to have info.

As of December this was my little pile. Too lazy to count them. Rimini LR, Grados and Carezza included. I guess I just needed the Nizza but I wasn't able to get a pair since they decided to not make it before they even let people see what they thought of it. But there again that's Vibram for us.
Now I have double VFFs. And still buying more, about 6 or 7 pairs coming in the upcoming 2 weeks. I guess am sort of a freak? Well also my husbands birthday is at the end of the month. My oldest Son's Birthday the week after and 2 weeks later my second son, and 2 days after my birthday.
So we all have birthdays in the lapse of 28 days and we are all Leo's and minimalist wearers and we always get each other new pairs for birthdays regardless of the so called "Birthday Present"😁
Idk. Whatever lol.

On slight elevations and grass/dirt/stone trails we can average a 20 minute mile.
That's about my pace on the level too. I know that as I walk for my lunch every day over about that distance.  Wink

Sorry Man. I can't disclose that info. I was given the images with their respective names.
The catalog is pretty similar to what the last year looks like with a few minor changes added these but I am not authorized to share not distribute to anyone except I was told it was okay to post the photos since sooner or later they would be out sooner or later.
Even if Justin himself asked me to tell him him, to protect my friends integrity in Italy I can't disclose that and as far as the catalog goes is still being worked on. Sure he could find the validity of these photos and confirm that they are legit but I shared here and so you could say am the source and it would stay there.
We will see how it goes next year but these will debut for summer and or fall of next year. ☺️
Which I can not wait because I love the Alitza and the Vi-Breathe Models and the Trek Ascent Models which am intrigued as to which one would be the Ladies model of the grey or the brown.
Now is a waiting game and see which ones will make it to the US.

I had high hopes for the Nizza to be produced as well but that didn't pan out so at least we got to see the sole with the Capri in the cover of last years catalog.

For the Girls: (makes sense why some Alitza Colors plus the new colors that are going to be introduced and some Vi-Bs won't be Restocked till 2015)
Alitza Loop (Purple and will come in Red as well, more colors TBC)
Alitza Breathe like the Vi-B but with Ballerina like laces.
Spyridon MR (Purple)

I don't "ultra walk" or "speed walk", but all I and the family primarily wear are VFF's.  My daughter runs cross country in them.  As a family we hike (just got back from another day of it) quite often.  On slight elevations and grass/dirt/stone trails we can average a 20 minute mile.  A 10 mile hike is about 3.5 to 4 hours including our rests if needed.  Rocky/elevated loose trails are a little slower only for the safety aspect.  We pass many "clopping" hikers in traditional foot ware, so I would say once you are conditioned VFF's should have no impact on your "speed".  Heck, we can pucker the dog out long before we or our feet are done...

Effective walking in VFFs requires a little modification of your gait, or so I'm told.

It's more "falling forward with style". The principle is that you lift your feet and let them fall, and gravity is what pulls you forward, with you adjusting your speed by the amount of leaning you apply. Cadence is supposed to be about 180 steps per minute.

As you're letting gravity do all the work, it should be far less tiring than "striding".

Running is supposed to be similar.

Hi all,

I've been walking in VFFs (mostly Seeyas) since April 2012. Nothing major, e.g less than 5km (or 3 miles) but doing it most days.

I've now signed up to do a 100km in 48hr trailwalk (about 62 miles) at the end of August and am starting to freak out!

I was feeling like my training was going pretty well, I was doing about 50km a week, mixing long and short walks and slowly increasing distance/hours.

Then last weekend I did a training walk with 2 of my teammates (we have one other team mate, but he lives about 3 hours away). Our walk was about 7hrs (approx. 30km). Some part of me thinks I should feel good walking that far in the vibrams, but I felt like those guys were sooo much faster than me (and hadn't been doing as much training either! they're also not on board with the vibram thing).

Has anyone else felt like their walking pace is slower in vibrams?
Anyone done an ultra walk in vibrams before?
Any advice?
