  • non in stock at that link dibbers

    how can retailers justify over £100 for pair is a mystery to me though.

    I fancied trying a bit of barefoot so I've started running one day a week in a pair of scuba diving booties, their a neoprene boot with a thin rubber sole that cost me less than £20, seem to be wearing ok upto now, done 25 miles in them so far and you can really feel the burn in your calfs the day after.

    You should see the price of cycling shoes image

    Just had a look at some Sidi Ergo ones at £270 ouch! at least you get a bit of carbon fibre for your money, Vibrams are just a rubber glove for you feet.

  • Get a knock off pair from Ebay. Many of them are excellent quality. Look for someone with a lot of feedback and a long track record. You should be fine.
  • You should see the price for some of the cycling gloves too!

    You don't even get a full fingers worth image
  • Cheers guys for replies, I was a bit concerned using eBay, whether I’d get originals or not. But Santa has ordered a pair off eBay, just have to wait and see.  Shame I can’t start running in them until another 31 nights have passed thoughimage.

  • I got my five finger Bikila's from

    Great people if you have to ring, they also say they are unbeatable on price in the UK.

  • I got mine from the london marathon expo in 2011 and they were £90. Pricey yes but well worth it. I ran in them for the first time for a while tonight and they were great. You wont get through them like you would a pair of running shoes!!
  • Sort of true, but my big toes have made a couple of holes in the top off vff treks after 350 miles. Still, at little bit of extra ventilation is welcome in this weather image
