Buy these in 25s. Run them at 90 psi until you wear the tread down so there are ridges. Replace them. I have done this for about 6 years and tens of thousands of miles and have had two (2) flat tires with these.

I run Gatorskins on all my road bikes, including my tandem, all year round. I don't recall ever getting a flat during the summer months, and during winter only get flats after a couple thousand miles.
My 40 km commute takes me over gravel roads, chip seal, heavily potholed asphalt in an industrial area, bike trails, and 'regular' city roads. I live in Seattle, so the roads are wet much of the time, but I rarely skid on heavy braking with these tires
I don't race, so I'm not as concerned with weight or high-speed cornering, and can't compare them to racing tires. But for putting on lots and lots and lots of miles (like commuting or training) they are perfect for riding if you don't like fixing flats.
The only issue I have with Gatorskins is that the thickened rubber on the center track tends to collect and hide tiny sharp rocks and glass. I just quickly check the tires every evening and pick out the debris with a small screwdriver.
I do ride lots of miles, and love the reliability and cost-effectiveness of the Gatorskins.
Note: PBK often offers the best price in the world that I've found, although they are not reliable in terms of having the size I need, when I need it. For example, as I write this review they only have 700x23s in stock. So, I purchase more than I need and keep some spares on hand.

I bought a set for a friend, and she has had no flats, despite lots of debris in our bike lanes. I highly recommend if flat protection is what you seek.

What can I say? I've put 5K miles on these tires in two seasons and I haven't had a single flat and they're just now getting to the point where I'm thinking about replacing them. Solid all-around tire, just fine in rain (I ride even during heavy downpours) and considering the PBK price, a really great deal to boot. A little more difficult to change than some other folding clinchers, but it makes your hands tougher. Just be sure to use the right, specifically sized tubes and not a catch-all size to prevent pinch flats. Not the fastest, lightest tire out there but totally suitable for recreational riders and commuting.

Have had then for 400 mile now and no problems. They roll great, are very tough. Well worth the money.

Everything they say about the gator skin is true. It's a tough, reliable wheel. Service from pro bike kit was nice. I ordered these from the States and everything arrived in a timely manner!

I've been riding a set of these for 9 months, at least 3 times a week, on rough chip seal roads. The front is still really good and the rear hasn't yet worn through the wear indicators, which is a great feature of this tire. I'm 200 lbs so quite a bit of pressure ends up on my rear tire. Not the lightest, but pretty good considering its toughness, and the ride is quite acceptable as well. I experimented with a lot of tires, and have really come to appreciate the durability and flat resistance of these. You won't be disappointed.

The Continental Gatorskin Clincher Road Tyre are such nice riding tires. I tried the Hardshells but it was too uncomfortable of a ride. These are great riding tough tires at a great price.
