    If I could only buy one pair of FiveFingers which should I get?

    A coworker just told me about a shoe store going out of business and everything is 60 - 70 percent off. She said they have FiveFingers. I am going to run by on my way home today. So if I was only going to get one pair, which ones should I buy. I would not be running in them, walking, hiking and dialy wear.

    Thanks

    Komodo Sport LS by a mile. Blows everything else I've tried out of the water.

    try on a few different types and see which works best for you. i like the sprints the best because they are so easy to get on and off, and i can do everything in those. the only downside is a sort of strange foot tan, which i wear with pride.

    lol, I have been wearing crocks for so long, strange foot tan is not a problem, will beat the Crock tan poka dot anytime....

    BTW, I am sure I will be limited to what they have on hand, so just trying to get a list together....

    I just recently purchased some regular vff after using nike frees for awhile. Could not stand the vff they feel incredibly awkward so i went and got a pair of the new nike free 3.0 v4. not exactly barefoot but they are flat enough and don't cause heel striking.

    so if you're like me and find them to be awkward nike frees are pretty good.

    Try them all. I am a fan of KSO's. They are secure and have a very thin sole for excellent ground feel and the footbed in the show is simple with no additional padding or layers to get between you and the world
    Integrity is what we do when nobody's watching.

    I have KSOs. At first I thought they felt horrible, too. But the more I wear them the more I like them because they're really fun to wear and I'm to the point now where I want to maybe get another pair. I think the Komodo SL look really good. Nice traction bumps on the sole and just a nice appearance overall.

    Agreed, either Komodo Sport or KSOs-but whatever they have will be great!

    I now own my first pair of FiveFingers. Had to go with what they had in my size, got a pair of TrekSport's for $43.00 that included the tax. I almost picked up a pair of classics for $30.00 Thanks for the advice
