My VFFs

These are pictures of my first pair of Vibram Five Fingers.  They have approximately 625 miles of mostly asphalt road running and minimal trails.














And yes, I had run in these beauties just days before snapping these photos back in February.  Where you could see my toe nails that is a product of a slightly too small fit and slightly too long nails.  Once I quick wearing socks in Spring 2010 my nails quickly cut through the leather.  This problem has not been repeated in my two pairs of Bikilas.

  1. RIP VFF :( From the looks of that gouge in the bottom of the one you're lucky you weren't running totally barefoot!

  2. They were loved well in their life. Been contemplating which model to buy- was looking hard at the Bikila. You just helped me cement that!

  3. wow, way to max those out! Wearing out running shoes is one of my favorite things. It signifies an achievement and I reflect on the many miles we had together as I toss them out.

  4. Wow! I've got somewhere around 600 miles on my KSOs and they don't look nearly that wiped out! Getting thin on the soles, but haven't worn thru yet.
