Happy birthday, George. http://img362.imageshack.us/img362/1...onwackobz7.gif
I asked a question about the durability in a recent thread somewhere... Anyway, I contacted the company asking about the durability compared to the typical running shoe (good for 350-500 miles); got my reply the next day.
Thanks for the inquiry.
You can expect at least 500 miles out of your Vibram FiveFingers soles before they show significant signs of wear. I have been running in my FiveFIngers for about 200 mi and my boss has been using them for well over 500mi. Neither of us has noticed any deterioration.
Thanks again for your interest in FiveFingers!
