  • I got my Vibram Speeds

    That didn't take too long to get here from the UK. I think it took only 10 days, so that was good service. I got these at http://www.purefootwear.co.uk/

    Compared to my KSO's, the are much more comfortable. I will mainly be wearing these with jeans to go around in since they look more like tennis shoes compared to my KSO's.

    Yeah, you will have to wait a till the pics get approved. Sorry. Is there a better way?

        I really enjoy my VFF Treksports and wear them almost exclusively right now. In what way would you say that the Speeds are more comfortable? I haven't seen this model yet on the VFF website; how did you find out about them? Thanks.

          Maaaan-----my husband's size were backordered so we still haven't gotten ours yet I'm kind of bummed that you got the site from me, and got yours before we did! haha. I'm glad you think they are so comfortable!

          And Neandergirl, they're only sold on the UK website! I found about them from a website comparing the upcoming speedlaced Bikila's with the speeds that are only available in Europe. I'm not sure how John found out about them.

              KSO's are great, but these really fit nice, especially with the laces. I love my KSO's though, but I really wouldn't wear them to work or out. These Speeds look nice enough to wear as regular shoes in public.

                I wouldn't wear them to work but I will wear them out in public to shop or whatever. Is it just the lace-up portion of the shoe that makes it more comfortable than the KSOs?

                  I want to wear them out too so I think I will try the performa Jane's.

                    I the laces makes it fit around the foot more naturally than velcro strap does on the other shoes. Also, it has some arch support that you really don't get much of on the KSO's.

                      Don't you Grokies think it is vital to pick a pair of Vibrams that are washable ? Some of those Five Finger models are not washable [ El Stinko ] and I have not found anything in specs that says "Washable" for the "Speed" model.

                      Here is the Horror Story:

                      Vibram Five Fingers can stink. Indeed, "VFF stank" — the "Vibram Five Fingers of Funk" — is such a pervasive problem that VFF fans so afflicted with smelly Vibram Five Fingers are often left wondering, "Are those strangers looking at me because I'm wearing five-toed shoes or because my five-toed shoes reek?"

                        My KSO's are washable, and these Speeds are supposed to be.

                          My Treksports are washable. I've washed them a number of times already and they clean up nice. They actually became more comfortable too.
