Glad to hear you got a deal on a pair.  I am sure you will like your KSO.  They were my first pair of VFF as well.  If your feet are really wide, you may want to consider Stem footwear.  Someone else mentioned Merrells, but they are really narrow.  I found I could not wear Merells, but Stems fit great right out of the box with no break in period at all.  I have been wearing them almost exclusively for weeks now.  I also wear Classics most of the summer.  I have not wore my KSOs for a long time, since buying Speeds and Classics and now Stems.  I don't hate KSOs or anything, I just don't prefer them as much as my other pairs so they do not make it into rotation.  It is not uncommon for someone to have several pair of VFFs and rotate them based on activity.  Some have dedicated a pair for running or watersports while others use one pair for everything and just wash them more often.  It is just a matter or personal preference.  Enjoy your KSOs and keep us posted when you buy your next pair.

I just got a second pair of KSO's because I am doing P90X in them and this way I can rotate them in and out and give each pair a whole day to dry with deodorizer to prevent "The Funk"

I finally got my pair! Yayayay. Smiley

Hmm. I was between a 39 and 40 and decided to round up. I'm undecided on if they're a size too big or not, but I don't think it's a big enough deal for a replacement. It's just a little extra space in front of my toes.

If it is bothersome, try a pair of injinjis.  I am a precise fit in my KSO with no room for socks.

The socks do help minimize the extra space and make it almost unnoticable but I don't think it's that "perfect" minimal space that most people go for. Good enough for me though.  I had to take them off halfway in the day though... For some reason the socks were giving me some pain around where the foot splits into toes.
Btw just wondering but do I have weak toes or is it normal to not really be able to bend the toes down?
