I have had my eyes on those for a while. Mandy, how do VFFs protect against hot surfaces? I am REALLY wanting a pair, but the cost and the fact that I don't know if my feet would burn in the heat concerns me.

Do you find them pretty true to size?

They have a Vibram rubber sole (though it's a thinner one) so I've never had an issue with hot pavement.

They have a measuring guide on the website and mine are spot on. They're a 40 mens and they're snug but not foot suffocating.

Grace, fro hot surfaces I'd definitely go with Komodosports or Komodosport LS - I have a paot of the regular Komodos and they're fantastic on hot pavement. I found the size chart very accurate.

What's the benefit of the LS over the normal velcro straps? I definitely want a pair of komodos now, but ouch @ the price... Hope they're durable.

They say the LS accommodates a wider foot or higher instep if needed. I kind of just don't like velcro.

I don't like the LS versions... my Spyridons are LS (the only style they come in) and I wish they just had the straps.

I'll email you sales when I can, Grace. I'm part of a VFF mailing list that shares sales when they find them, and you can get great deals. Aryn got a pair of Komodosport LS for less than $90, plus free shipping.

Various sizes/pairs for $99 and free shipping:

Some sizes/colors only $76!
