For running, one other option is the Sockwa X8 or G3.  About as minimal as it gets in a closed shoe.

OK, thats a word. Then I will just try to improve my walking and running style bevor I get a new pair. I think this pair of EVOs will have to be colletaral damage before I get it right...  Tongue Grin

I'd expect no better performance from the Bikila on wear until you take care of your form...  There is a wealth of information on here in past posts that can help guide you.  I'd suspect if you go for a walk barefoot on the same surfaces that you will see a "hotspot" develop on the sole of your foot in that same area.  You need to correct that first or the VFF addiction will be a very expensive one for you  Grin  With proper form that fabric between the toes will fail before the soles....  I was into the 1000's with my KSO's before they needed retired...  My now "go to "EVO's" are wearing similarly for me...

first of all, thanks for the replies!

My feet are somewhere in the middle with a slight direction to narrow.
I did not run many miles in my EVOs (like 10 or so) but I wear them the whole day for a few month when it is warm enough. If I had to guess I would say they got about 150 miles on them. Most of the time Iam walking on pavement and other hard grounds. The most wear off is at the ball of the foot. Don't get me wrong, they are not worn out extremely, but it is well noticeable. My fear is now, that running will even wear them out more quickly because I think running is more aggressive to the sole than normal daywear.
Another thing why I would like to try the Bikilas is, that I would like to have two different pair of shoes for sport and dayuse, so that I don't have to wash them as often. When I would come to work with my smelly runningshoes colleagues might not appreciate it that much...

The most minimal of the VFFs is the KSO EVO with the laces left loose (the EL-X is similar, but that will hug your foot). None of the running VFFs has any arch support. They do conform to the shape of a normal foot, with an arch in the last, but there is no structure providing support to that.

I wear VFFs because there is no arch support in them. I have a tendency to flat feet, possibly due to EDS (the possibility of EDS is being investigated in a few weeks), and have found that the lack of structure in VFFs has caused the lower leg muscles (and those within the foot itself) to tighten and allow the arch to form. If I relax the foot fully it collapses again but, when in use, my feet function far better than they ever did when I was wearing corrective orthotic insoles.

Similarly, where on the sole gets the most wear?

Welcome Trisman...
How many miles are you getting out of your KSO Evo's?  I have seen no wear on mine or my EL-X's utilizing the same sole.

Sandals aren't an option for me in this dirty city. I do wear them whenever I get away from the city.

So is vivobarefoot motus my best option right now for a running shoe?

Waiting for my other experiments to arrive.

If nothing else works I will suck it up and get some invisibleshoes and just carry them to the park to run in. Maybe some softstars run amocs once I get some more cash.

Welcome! Are your feet broad or are they narrow?
