Now that there's an abundance of choice in the VFF's, I don't know which one to choose anymore! I had the VFF kso. Disadvantages: hard to put on (but thats not the most important issue for me), and I got blisters from the lining, especially on the upper foot, and I'd like to have the sole to have just a little more grip, without it getting thicker. Actually, i want the sole to be as thin as possible. I also own a pair of Feelmax panka's, I think, which have just 2 mm, and it makes a huge difference. Thats why they usually win, i miss the feeling of 'free' toes, but love the super minimalistic approach. Then, also I'd like to own a pair that is suitable for trek walking/mountains, I tried my kso's in the mountains, and although i loved it, the grip is terrible, specially on wet,slippery steep rocks and Ive notived with the minimalistic shoes that your feet may get tired and painful from walking
long distances with a superthin sole.
For running I use the vibrams mostly on natural terrain, soft sandy trails, hard mud trails with stones, forest paths etc. Areas are quite flat here. So I'm looking out for a shoe thats preferably easier to fit on than the kso (high instep), has NO lining on the inside of the upper foot/toes or heel, no frictions (very sensitive for blisters) thin sole, but preferably more grip. And then I'd like to know which shoe you fantatics advice for walking treks
. Complicating fact is that i have a size 35, and most models are not sold in that size/sold out.
Thanks so much in advance!
