I got the kso's and I am addicted. I am buying 3 more pairs for all of my upcoming runs soon. I am so obsessed with them!!! So comfy, and even if they are a little strange, I never could run before, and now it feels good. They turned me into a runner. I know that sounds weird. I always ran goofy and slow. I was prone to injury; I even got shin splints in high school just from walking the mile (and I was fit at the time).
Now I run a lot, but only in those shoes. My knees and arches hurt in other shoes.
I love love love my vibrams!

So very true. I actually broke my foot from what I suspect was using my vibrams too much too soon. I'm naturally a toe runner so I didn't suffer from a lot of soreness in my calves like many of my co-workers did when they first started using them. However, between running a short distance (0.5 - 1 mile) and then walking the rest of the way (up to 3 - 5 miles)....I broke my foot. Not a slam against vibrams but against me who didn't take it slower despite all the advice and reocmmendations to do so.
