I really, really want Vibram FF to succeed as a company.. I have been using them as my exclusive running and hiking shoes for the past 9 years. Something is happening to the fit of all the different FF styles— the fit is not consistent across styles, and styles I was able to wear before don't fit me right now. I owned a pair of KSOs about 5 years ago, and the fit was completely different from the KSOs I just bought in May 2018 — I ran 4 miles in them and they don't even feel appropriate for running now. The seams on inside of the foot are very rough and gave me blisters in the insides of my feet (halfway between my big toe and ankle); this has never happened to me before with any style of Five Fingers. I can only suspect the outsourced company making the shoes now are either cutting corners and/or don't know what they're doing. For goodness sake, start making these shoes locally with attention to consistency and quality... I really want to keep using these shoes in the future, but I have been looking at alternatives because as of about 2018, they no longer fit me the way the used to.
