have had them since the summer. they're holding up fine under pretty regular usage, but since I've been wearing them for both active and casual purposes, I'm thinking an additional pair would be dedicated to running/exercise. Rather than "replacing," I should say "supplementing." Does the forum community think March would be a ballpark safe guess for the availability of the Bikilas? That's when the Terra Plana Evos are coming out and I'm sure Vibram is keenly aware of the impending competition...
If it's February, my personal guess is that it would be like going to buy a video-game at 11:59 on a Thursday. I'm thinking it will be March before anyone on here had a pair.
not saying i'm not looking forward to the Bikilas/Speeds - i am - but right now i wanna get myself another pair o treks, i am also looking at black camo kso's and also some feelmax (i want a nice minimalist alt that i can wear to work without attracting so much attention)
I think late February or something if when they'll be shipping (impression I got from GSSGear), but not definate about that. March sounds like a good guess, but who knows. ???
are you going to krazy glue that hole - probably give you some more milage
Yeah, given what appears to be the local nature of that wear, I'd be tempted to patch that and squeeze a few more miles out of them. Or at least keep them for kicking around...
What material would you suggest using for a patch without adding material that would cause abrasions? Would you add it inside or outside?
Marley, I'm surprised your wife hasn't killed you yet. I thought you said she was angry 3 KSOs and a pair of treks ago. Now with Vivo barefoot shoes and upcoming bikilas, treks, and more KSO, perhaps you should save your money for a lawyer. With all your VFFs, how many does your wife have? You should get her hooked too.
Here's one idea from Barefoot Ted:http://barefootted.com/2008/06/fivefingers-as-skateboard-shoe.html
