I’d been noticing that the upper to my Vibrams was beginning to stretch out. The soft leather allows for easer foot-loading but is possibly leaving my foot a little too free for the extra long runs I’ve been doing.
I went in search of a new pair — this time with the goal of securing the Women’s version which is cut a bit narrower than the Men’s I’ve been wearing. The task is not so easy in these days of the barefooting boom. I hit up REI online and three other stores. The result: BACK ORDERED.
I made one final phone call to a local store I’ve only heard about but have never been to. Waa-la!
At first glance, it’s hard to see the difference between the soles of the old and the new — but look a little closer. A side by side comparison show what just shy of 200 miles looks like.
