I think UV will break down most stuff with enough time

Not only does Vibram produce the best discs, but they have the best customer service! Steve saw a post on this forum where I was talking about my Sole having a sunken spot. So he messages me, gets my shipping info, and on Monday I received a brand new Sole (would have posted about this sooner but I caught a wicked case of the flu this weekend).

Just posting to give another example of Vibram's/Steve's amazing customer service. Thank you!

The first and second run of X-Link Soft discs (2010 & 2011) were quite susceptible to UV light. We revised the formula in 2012 to be much more resistant, but over time the soft will break down. I have not seen this happen with the standard X-Link and X-Link Firm.

Wow, it is snowing outside of my window right now and the only thing I can think of is throwing one of these Lace discs from Vibram. Based on the comment from the guy who went to DN and threw them, it sounds like I might need to get them in various different colors. Ha! Is there a time frame as to when my Pinnacle retailer is going to have these in stock?

Dear Santa

Dear Mr. Claus:

Hey there. I know you recently received my kids extensive and detailed list of demands, and I'm sure some other kids wrote to you as well. But I'm wondering: What about the grown-ups? Don't we get to want stuff? Listen, Santa (can I call you Santa?), my friends and I, we harbor desires no mere mortal could fulfill. You, however, are clearly no mere mortal. If anyone can do it, Santa, it's you! (Yes, I am kissing up to you. You probably get that a lot.) So here you go. Oh But first i got to say that I know I have done some questionable thing this year but they were not my fault. I don't remember calling Mitch's wife a annoying goat---even though she looked like one with blue eye shadow and orange lipstick! and It really wasn't my fault what happened at Kristin's Christmas party. It was Jon who spiked the punch with too much Rum . I can't help it if I drank 25 glasses. It was so good---smelled and tasted just like candy canes. If you can put that behinfd you, I promise to do better next year so please just pay it forward!!!!

All I want are a couple Vibram Lace discs on Christmas morning! PLease see what you can do to make this happen, it would be greatly appriciated.

I'm trying to believe,
SoupD

PS, for my kids sake and my sanity don't forget the batteries this year!!!!
