After many repairs and a tube of Shoe Goo it was time to say goodbye to my Vibram Five Fingers KSO slippers. The tears between the toes were no longer practically repairable. I got a new pair on sale at MEC.ca. Although they have some serious flaws for watersport use they are still the best option for kiteboarding footwear.
I also bought a new bobbin of black thread and a fresh tube of Shoe Goo. Let the games begin!
