Is VFF KSO the model I want to be buying?
« on: October 18, 2009, 04:50:52 PM »
Basically, would any of the others Spring/Flow/KSO trek be better?  I'm looking for best grip and best all around.

The only store I've seen that sells them in my area is REI. So, you might check at a climbing store or similar 'outdoors' store near you.

Hope that helps!

I found the KSO's to be the best fitting and most comfortable to move in.  The Sprints have an annoying heel strap, and the Flows aren't really neccesary unless you're in cold temperatures.  I wold definitely go with the KSO's.  You can also pick up pairs of the Injinji toe socks from REI which i definitely reccomend.

Hmmm.  I am the kinda guy that never wears shoes without socks.  Are these different?  It would seem kinda weird though to wear socks with these.  Plus I rip up socks a lot and I don't want to have to worry about being all careful with one pair and not loosing them.  So yeah, what do you think?


Also, do all REI's have them?

TTTTTTHHHANKS.
