Has anyone found anywhere in the UK to buy these for less than twice the price they are in the US?
I'm used companies here just replacing the $ with a £ making things 1.6x the price but doubling it is just stupid, the sensible option now seems to be buying two pairs from the US then selling one on ebay.

I got a pair off ebay that I suspect may have been fakes. I'm 90% sure they were the real deal, but you never know. They were under £30.

In any case, I enjoyed them until they wore out and then I went back to running in my feiyue tai chi shoes, which I prefer.

I have a pair of KSOs and went too far too soon in them when I first got them, thus putting myself out of action for a month with a soft-tissue injury. I went back running less than 3k in them for the first week, then 5k and am now up to 11k on the road. I want to invest in a pair of Spiridons as I love trail running and the KSOs are absolutely crap on wet, muddy trails. Think Bambi on ice!

Re: My previous post
http://www.vibramfivefingers.it/default.aspx much cheaper than sites in the UK and 'only' £15ish more than the US with the current £/€ exchange rate :D
