    Sooo..... through REI Outlet, I can get a pair of VFFs for 20% off.

    I can either get....

    These for $40 (originally $75)
    [​IMG]

    These for $44 (originally $85)
    [​IMG]

    or THESE for $64.00.
    [​IMG]

    WHY I WOULD WANT EACH OPTION:
    Option 1: I don't have this style yet, and they're cheap
    Option 2: I like this color, but I already have them in black
    Option 3: THEY ARE LEATHER, come in brown or black, but I do have them in black fabric already. ***If I go this route, should I get black or brown?***

    I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!! The sale is unbeatable, so I want ONE pair. I just don't know WHICH pair to choose! Help?

    Do you know if the leather are machine washable? If so, I'd get them!

    Apparently the leather ones ARE machine washable. What color - brown or black if I go with leather?

    There you go ladies - apparently it works for everyone. If you want VFFs at a CRAZY CHEAP price, there you go. :)

    When I was checking out the leather ones before, I found a lot of reviews that said they were less durable...something about the leather to cloth or sole to leather interfaces not being as reliable.

    That was at least 6 months ago so maybe they fixed the issue...just an fyi

    Oh man! I had JUST decided last night to finally get a pair.....but was going to wait a bit...SO tempting.

    Ok, I know you really need to try them on first, but for someone with a size 8 (short foot/toes) what size in general? My mom and I are both 8's but some 8's are too small for her and still fit me so I guess I am a "snall" 8?

    My pick is for #1, the style you don't have yet. Also, for me I have KomodoSports and for my next pair I want one with a thinner sole and no lugs; I think the lugs on 3 are more gimmicky than practical.

    My vote is: Buy me the blue KSOs. My original pair is juuuust starting to wear down after aa year and a half of use, and I am so **** sad that they got rid of ALL the colours.

    I'm no help. :rofl1: Well, yes I am: several friends own the Treks and swear by them. Most comfortable pair they own and amazeballs for hiking and rougher terrains. I'm considering a pair.

    ... and I just read that you already own a pair. Disregard!

    stardogs: yes, the Treks are machine washable!

    OK I ended up getting the blue KSOs and the brown leather Treks. Blue because DAYUMMMM I like those blue ones! (And KSOs are so versatile, why NOT own two pairs?)

    I go the leather ones because i don't have a leather pair yet. I'm intrigued!

    Decided against the Classics because Classics are always on sale, and if I get a pair I want them to be Smartwool ones. They'd just be for around the house, and arund the house I just go barefoot.
