Preview of the Spyridon LS vs Spyridon

So, I have taken them out for a spin and can give you a short, first impressions opinion of the VFF Spyridon LS in comparison to the Spyridon (with velcro hook and loop closure).
After my first run in the Spyridon LS

I love the styling. As a trail runner I think that these shoes in the colour scheme shown in the picture is the most appealing model that Vibram have released to date (and it will take some beating). The mountain-bike-like tread screams at me to take these bad-boys out for a muddy run. As for the upper; I love the balance between sensible trail running colours such as brown and black with the injection of vibrant white skeleton-like strips coming from each toe and meeting to the side of the foot. Simply damn cool and sexy!

Back from Honeymoon

Hi readers.

Firstly, a massive apology for being away the last few weeks. I got married and went away on honeymoon. Getting married was the most amazing experience of my life. I am now back and will be reviewing the Spyridon and Spyridon LS for you all, soon after I get over one last hurdle...

A few weeks ago whilst upping my training, mileage and intensity I over-did it. I ended up with a stress fracture in my foot :( It is getting better although I run a health and fitness company called Trinity Fitness Ltd, so I am forever demonstrating exercises and running with them. Ie progress is slow!!!
