Surprise! FiveFingers KSO EVO is already out! For the right-sized feet. KSO EVO Review:

Unlike the EL-X, which has nothing else but the mesh+painted rubber combination to keep the shoe on your foot, the KSO EVO has the addition of a lace system to maintain tightness and does not rely on the the painted-on for security, so its usage seems redundant and inhibits breathability. It may also cause hot spots, which I experienced on my instep where there is some of the painted-on material (near the Vibram logo). This went away after a few runs, but it was quite the initial annoyance. I had a similar experience with the EL-X and I think both shoes just require a little bit of a break-in period to eliminate any hotspots or tightness due to the non-breathable rubber material.
