I passed the 400 mile mark with my Terra Plana Evo's and they are still going strong. I'm starting to believe that I could realistically put another 400 miles on them and perhaps push 1,000 mile mark. As I push forward to the 600 mile mark, they will turn out to be a great bargain at $160 considering it would take me 2 pair or regular running shoes at $100-$120 for that amount of mileage.
Without question, I can say overall the Evo is the best running footwear I've ever put on my feet (I also hit my 5k PR in them). Through trial and error I've discovered that I prefer the Evo without the insole. Ground feel is my #1 requirement (of course, a prerequisite for any footwear I choose is no motion control, no arch support and no heel build-up) and next to the VFF KSO, the Evo provides the best ground feel and, unlike the KSO, the Evo can be used in cold weather with warm socks and/or toe warmers.
The journey continues but I feel tremendously better than I did 1 yr. ago when my goals was simply to control pain as opposed to preventing pain as all regular running shoes just kill my feet.
