looking into grabbin a pair of the SeeYa's
i have kso's, classics, treks, and a pair of bikilas
as well as several vivo pairs

now - my go to runner at this moment is the bikila
and i love going sockless

so i am looking for some general feedback
as to what to expect from the seeya as compared to the bikilas
and also  - how well can you run sockless
also pt 2 - i am a 46 in all other forms
would that hold true for the seeya's?

I don`t own Seeya`s, but will tell you what I`ve understood from reading other people`s accounts...

Apparently they are a good pair of running shoes, very thin and lightweight, good for running on pavement with a great barefoot feeling.
Wearing them casually, some people have complained about the less then ideal lateral traction of the sole, though.
The fabric is very thin and stretchy, a bit too stretchy it seems, waiting for the lace version appears to be a good idea.

I love my SeeYas. They are my go-to not-winter road running shoe.  Straight out of the box, I did get a small blister along my achilles. But once you've run in them a few times, they soften up and are great sockless. (Just use a little glide for the first couple  runs and I'll bet you avoid any problems. I like the feel of my SeeYas sockless better than my other VFFs, including the bikilas. (the bikilas feel too thick to me.)

I currently own three pairs.  I leave one at work for lunch time runs, one at home for running, and one extra for casual wear.   I know they feel too loose for some people but I have no problems with the fit or feel.   If you can, try them on before you buy so you can judge whether you might be better served by waiting for the LS version.

In terms of sizing, my SeeYas are the same size as my bikilas, treks, KSOs, komodos LS, and classics. (I'm one of the few who doesn't size up for classics. I do for sprints.)

And belated welcome back!

Start off conservatively -- many (myself included) have found that the Seeya upper strap rubs badly when running.  I can't run in them without socks or without getting a terrible blister on the inside of my foot.

I'm back to my Bikilas for running until they come out with Seeya LS shoes.

That's a good caution. FWIW I don't tighten the strap at all on my SeeYas. It's closed but that's about it.  I take the same  asic approach with my KSOs and treks.  I've had the dreaded arch blister from having the strap too tight when I first got my KSOs.

What is your footshape?
I got wide feet and don't have problems with the strap, as a matter of fact, the strap doesn't do anything for me. If I tighten the strap it doesn't feel more secure.

From the See-Ya LS pictures that I saw on Facebook, I believe the lacing system is like the Speeds and not the Bikila LS and KomodoSport LS.  There have been a lot of complaints about slipping and rubbing in the traditional lace less See-Ya, which supposedly has been addressed/rectified in the LS version.
