Is anyone else annoyed that they are discontinuing this line? I am a 42 Men and I can't seem to find a legit version of them anywhere -- whether at a store or online. Any suggestions?

@Justin,

OK, I tried a bit of walking in a pair of classics and they didn't come off while walking which is what i was hoping for and so that sealed it enough to get a pair.

@Kel,

They're probably too big (you need to size down) if they're slipping off that easily. Classics sizing is a bit tricky but it should be snug at the ends.

i tried the classics on and they seem to slip off real easy...is that meant to be the case as i am worried that they might come off while i walk.

I just purchased my first pair of VFF's about a week ago. I opted for the Sprints because I will mainly be using them for regular daily errands, walking and such. No real extreme exercising and or sports. Plus I liked the look of them. I've always been a barefoot girl so these are my dream shoes! I have however had a bit of an issue with the heal tab rubbing painfully on my achilles tendon. I must say it has gotten much better with wear even in one week. Also washing them and wearing them until they dry helps to break them in. The other thing I noticed completely by accident is that tightening the heel straps helps to keep the back of the shoe up and in place so the tab doesn't slide down and put pressure lower on my heel. I was wearing them as loose as possible thinking that would help but for me the opposite was true. My next pair was going to be Bikilas because of the padding at the heel but after reading the comments here I think I may try a pair of Classics. Thanks for all of the insight.

im planning to get another pair of VFF in addition to my KSO, but im struggling between Sprints and Classic. I understand the convenience of the Classic - sliding them on and most minimalistic of them all. but what about the Sprints? with just an additional strap over it, how "inconvenient" can it get?

and im honestly worried that the heel tab will cause painful blisters (i plan to run in them up to 4miles).

any advice?

About the elastic band, i have been wearing my Classics for almost 5 years now. I nearly quit them early on because they just started to hurt after a couple hours, not because of my foot but because of that elastic band, one day i met a man who was like..while just cut it out.

i did. i have never love a foot covering so much! Classics are the best. Feet down, cut your elastic band and fly over heavenly clouds of vibram souls.

I have classics and at first I thought I needed a strap to keep them on when I ran but this turned out not to be the case. The first month of running in them I had bruises on the back of my heel and blisters everywhere else, but this went away and now I am a tried-and-true barefoot runner
