Same for me, I find Treksports are ideal for cyling, good grip, stiff enough soles and no laces to get caught in the spokes...

For me the Treksports are plenty stiff and thick enough, they have become my cycling shoes.

I've found Lontras fine for cycling into town, shopping, whatever, in. Sole plenty stiff enough on flat pedals and the neoprene cuff stops rain water running down your leg into  your shoe (I'm in northen UK so this may be more of an issue for me than others here).

If I'm taking the road bike out it's SPD's. Thats whats fitted to it  and there won't be much, if any, stopping and walking happening. If I do stop it may well be for a 5k run (triathlon) and it is in places where the shoes will be left behind for a barefoot run anyway.

Does anyone know of any barefoot/minimalist shoes with nonslip, oil resistant outsoles?

I know of 3, but haven't decided if I want to actually get any yet.

1) OTZShoes Madlib MV and Moc MV: A minimalist shoe designed for kitchen use. I am not so sure about the durability of the shoe. The only review I could find said that the outsole started coming off after only a few days of light use.
2) Belleville Mini-mil: It has a nonslip, oil resistant outsole, but it is too high profile for my taste. Also, I don't think it is flexible and is not 100% zero drop.
3) Russell Moccasin minimalist shoes: The outsole is perfect (Vibram calls it the "restaurant sole") but they are too expensive. I read a review about them tearing up very quickly so I am not too excited about spending $300 and waiting a long time for the shoes to arrive.

Do you know of any? Even if they aren't available in the USA, please list them. I don't mind even shipping over seas as long as I find a shoe that is worth it.

The toes in my KSO EVOs (M46) are the same length as my EL-Xs.

Interesting.  My KSO EVO are due to arrive today.  I'll have to give them a try and see if I have the same experience you two seem to be having.

Do yours feel the same

Barefoot walker Philip Wells ends 1,000 miles on Anglesey

After walking barefoot for 1,000 miles over rugged cliff tops and valleys, a fundraising poet's feet have earned a well-deserved rest.

Philip Wells, 51 and from London, completed his epic trek from Penzance, Cornwall, to the Menai Bridge, Anglesey, on Saturday after 110 days on the road.

This may sound odd but also make sure your toe nails are trimmed.  I was wearing mine and felt pressure on my big toe...found out my toenail was a little too long so I cut them even with the toe and problem solved. I dont know if anyone else has had issues like that.

i agree with you.  my kso evo's have short toe pockets.  my regular size fits me but the toe pockets don't come down far enough.
