1000 Miles on My Vibram FiveFingers KSO !!!

Posted by scott on July 25, 2011

I crossed a big milestone on the Munger State Trail near Hinckley, MN last Sunday – 1000 miles on my Vibram FiveFingers KSO.  I am still a huge fan of these, and they are my usual go-to shoes.  They are still in great shape, and have many more miles on them.  I will post a more detailed 1000-mile review soon.

More good miles to come, thanks for the memories KSOs!!

    I like my VFF’s too, but am still working up to double digit mile runs in them. Starting to really dislike running in shoes!

    I write an English that is good for nothing. In order to this, I’ll be write in portuguese.
    Estou radiante com esta notícia deste tipo inusitado de meia para maratonas que pode servir para o dia-a-dia, para um obstinado por meias como eu. Envie-me todos os detalhes possíveis para o meu e-mail e ficarei imensamente agradecido.

    Hi Scott – Your post inspired me. I ran 3.5 miles in my Vibrams yesterday. I’ve been wearing them for about a year during my lunch workouts (strength training), but this was the first real run in them. It felt really good. Feet and calves are a little sore today, but not bad at all.

    Thanks for the post.

    Kev – That is so cool! I hope you are enjoying them. If you start running, the key is to move up really really slowly – 3.5 is a lot. I would suggest that you only go 1-2 miles for a couple runs, then start adding miles or half miles. When your calves are sore, give them a rest and back off a bit. Once you build a base, you will have no trouble but its easy to do too much too fast. Keep it up!

    I haven’t given up on shoes entirely, and will wear regular shoes at Sawtooth. But I have to say I put on a pair of new-ish 790s to break them in for backup shoes and I felt like I was wearing high heels. Not that I know what that really feels like.
