what is the diff in the LS version?


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.

Good for you on the test drive.  As a tall woman with proportionally sized feet, I too lament the somewhat boring options for the men's LS SeeYas. But I have the flashy black and yellow ones, so perhaps it's not a concern that i cant get the  yummy orange LS ones.  I also rationalize that since I love the regular SeeYas I have, I really dont need to the LS  version.

I have some KSO's, Bikila LS's, and now the SeeYa's.  I don't even wear the Bikila's anymore.  I find the SeeYa's perfect for my shorter runs (up to 4 miles so far) and I even wear them to the gym where I typically do crossfit/circuit training workouts and they seem to work great.  I was worried they would be too loose but I do box jumps and such with no issues.   I don't have any rubbing issues either from running but I don't tighten the strap at all.  They feel fairly loose and sloppy until I start to run in them and then I don't feel any problems.

My KSO's have been demoted to yard work or occasional gym duties only.  I helped roof my friends garage the other day and he is using this plastic/rubber weive stuff and it was raining and everyone else was slipping but mine stuck like glue. 

I don't see any reason to switch to the LS down the road.  I dont like the LS versions since they are made of less flexible material on the uppers to support the laces.  I feel like they don't bend and stretch as naturally as the non-ls versions.  Just me though

yeah i have nothing negative to say on my seeyas thus far
i was a big kso fan
liked the biks better

but these seeyas remind me of the first time i went from sneakers to vibes
i am digging the feel so much

just trying to take my rest days (believe it or not this is hard for me Smiley )
so i can avoid any overuse issues

I had that same thought.  They really are designed for just running forward.  With twisting and turning and lateral movement, they can feel a little sloppy.

so i dont need socks with these right - do they have a bikila like liner?
i love running sockless and i know my kso's i couldnt without rub blisters
bikilas yes no problem
my classics i dont wear socks but i dont run in them either

My concern as well, I run in Speeds w/out socks too.  I got an extra pair for around town everyday living.

to me the seeya's represent totally what i look for - that awesome ground feel - now - i just ordered my first pair of huaraches from invisible shoes so i am curious as to how they will compare

also in immediate competition will be the el x coming out

i think that the minimalist world has so many choices now for folks and thats so cool - something for everyone ya know

so i got my huaraches and i dig em - but i think i prefer my seeyas for running - the main reason is that i get better ground feedback in the seeyas - i like the huaraches though and can see using them quite a bit for kicking around doing anything - i will be giving them some more 'runs' however but for now i think the seeyas perform so well as my running shoe i couldnt imagine the huaraches kncoking them from the rotation

Just got my pair from Eastern Mountain Sports yesterday, put them on and fell in love.  They are fantastically light and comfortable.  I also really dig the fact that they practically glow in the dark.  My legs are sore from 6 softball games and a run this weekend, but I can't fight the desire to take them for a spin tonight.

well, I am 6'1 248 and started running a few months back and ran 4 miles in bikilas and then a kneeboard reminded my how old i am.... Started running last week in the rain (i love running in the rain).  I ran 3 miles in bikilas last week, 4 in seeyas too. Yesterday some very big stress was added to my life and i got in my seeyas and ran until exhaustion.  I ran 10 miles. And no side effects except maybe i had the straps a little too tight as my feet are a little sore there.  I have not run 10 miles in 18 years.

i like the seeyas best for running so far.

my pair finally arrived!!!

only had time to go walk the dog around the block, some 20mins of fast walk.
don't seem like they'll rub anywhere, very light and easy to slip the foot on.
Thick enough to walk over rocks... I'd dare run as well, but only if at a very short, flat pace.
Did a shortcut down a large grass ramp! was wet and lumpy but no slipage! mainly cos they're so flexible I can actually "grab" the ground with my foot.
and the cooles thing: they are soooooooo snug against the foot that I was able to "ninja walk" the whole block. Even the dogs only heard me when I was 5 feet from them. smooooooooth! =D
will test them running 4k tomorow mornin. =D
