Genuine Injinis tend to sell for about 10 a pair in the UK. Intra-EU sales do not incur customs charges.

I wouldn't recommend a Spyridon for parkour. The soles are meant for stony tracks, not for grip on concrete.

The publicity materials say that the 2015 reboot of the KMD is specifically designed for parkour activities. I've no idea how durable the soles will be. It will be a trade-off of grip against wear-resistance, like with car tyres.

Seems to me like maybe a Spyridon?  Don't know.  I've never used them like this....

Interesting paradox!  Hmmm, maybe those are a good all-arounder for me...! 

Are the soles pretty stiff?  Do you know how they compare to say, the Spyridon in that regard?

With socks, they're comfortable. My feet sweat a lot in summer too. I have worn them round the house too, to break them in, and they are still comfortable in the warm. I'd say socks are essential, though. Paradoxically, they feel tight without socks and just "snug" with them.

I've only owned the original soles....classics and KSOs....what do you figure I'd like the most?  Softer you think?

... I'm very flat footed...soles of shoes don't do my any favors...
I'm also flat footed, but wearing VFFs all the time (except in bed) has helped loads.

The newer models are split into extra flexible (and possibly softer) soles, like the EL-X, and harder soles based on the Trek pattern or similar.

The hardest soles I have are in the Bikila WP and Spyridon MR. The softest are the EL-X.

I am in europe, different situation here. Unfortunately everything is double priced to here. For example if i buy one pair of socks from REI, what is 10 usd. But the shipping is + 25, and the TAX and VAT + 11. So one pair of socks price will be 45 usd from REI. Not the best price Smiley
But thnx.
Shipping is free at aliexpressz.

Maybe it's time to look at something like a Merrell Trail Glove with a pair of Injiji socks to keep that separate toe feel?

Just not sure...freaks me out to get away from VFFs a little...as they are basically the only reason I could start running again (besides joint pain from my lower back down, I'm very flat footed...souls of shoes don't do my any favors).
