This is where the addiction starts!These are great for Vibram beginners. Follow the instructions and you can eventually wear these all the time. I have worn them for various occasions but now I wear them religiously at the gym. They do develop an interesting odor over time through extended use, but you can throw them in the washer and air-dry them. Your best bet is to buy the grey Injinji toe socks. They match the grey on the Vibrams perfectly and since they are ankle socks, they won't look silly! Since wearing the socks I haven't noticed any odor. Great product and very little wear on the bottom and my feet are much stronger with them. Just upgraded to the Vibram Bikila!

great all arounderthe line of shoes by Vibram are fantastic. the benefits from using these shoes are immense. ,,,,this specific pair are your all-rounders, if your specializing in trails or running ext. . . there are ones more suited to those activities. if you are just getting into the minimalist/foot shoes these are the ones to get first, (or if your old pair has worn out after a years use, like mine). they are super comfy, provide unparalleled ground feel, quick drying and don't let debris to get into the top of the shoe. these are the ones ill use for most of my activities or if i don't know what ill be doing. (p.s. they make a great water shoe too.)

Convenient, Comfortable, and CoolThe Vibram Five Fingers Men's KSOs are unique and affordable shoes that will leave you asking yourself why you didn't try them out sooner.,,,,These shoes are light and comfortable and can be used in environments that you never thought were suitable for shoes. You can walk/run on the beach and not have to worry about collecting sand in your shoes and making a mess.,,,,Also, these shoes are machine washable, which makes them easy to clean.,,,,I highly recommend these shoes for runners who typically run distances of 0-8 miles in any weather conditions whatsoever. They are healthy for your feet and even provide you with a more "confident" feel.

Ehh. Lot of hype. Not bad thoughThere has been a lot of hype about these shoes. I wouldn't say that they are bad, but don't assume that by purchasing them you will completely alleviate your ailments. I bought mine to test them out while recovering from an injury left by another pair of shoes. I found my pain decreased after starting with the 5 fingers for two weeks until the pain from the added impact started to increase. Impact management is something you will pickup by altering your running style, but it does take time and honest effort to change how you run. If your patient and learn quick, have trouble with running shoes, and like toe socks, then this is the shoe? for you.

Comfortable, Fashionable, and Extremely Versatile Feet HuggersGot these bad mamma-jamma's for my birthday two weeks ago and I could not of received a better gift! I wear them every where I go, including to the movies, because they are the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. ,,,,My lady friend and I went on a little hike/rock climb last weekend and these shoes had me thinking I was Spider-Man. The rubber bottoms on these shoes grip insanely to whatever surface you put them on. They bring a whole new meaning to the term "sure-footed".,,,,It may take a bit of getting use to having the feeling of stuff between your toes but you'll move past that quick enough! These bad boys turn heads everywhere I go!!

Outstanding for traditionally barefoot sports, especially yoga/PilatesI teach multiple sessions of yoga/Pilates each week and move around the studio during classes to demonstrate poses. KSOs untether me from my mat & provide a safe, nonslip surface while flexing & adapting to the movements.,,I wear KSOs while instructing Pilates Reformer clients, and I regularly demonstrate proper form/technique myself before having them do so. I move confidently through exercises requiring full articulation of the feet with KSOâs excellent, nonslip grip. If a client needs a prop, I can quickly retrieve it without pausing to put shoes on/off, allowing me to focus my attention on my clients.,,Highly recommendedâIâll buy a second pair.

Great product, good fit, takes some getting used to.I bought these for a Florida vacation. I wore them for a week before we left. They take some getting used to. You certainly don't want to take them off and back on all day. Getting your toes lined up takes some time. Once on they are pretty comfy. I spent a day fly fishing, walking over coral, palm husks, wadding, jumping over gators, they performed very well. A couple of days latter I walked on pavement with them for several hours and found myself wishing for something with more support. All and all glad with my purchase, but probably wouldn't wear them all the time. Can't wait to try them as camp shoes on the next backpack trip.,,,,Thanks Moosejaw

PURELY BADASS.After seeing these on google images I started to research them a little, and in no time I bought the black & white camo ones, and I honestly expected a high chance of finding some con about them when I received them. However I have been wearing them since with pride, I looked into these primarily because of parkour, or freerunning, because the grip on them is sublime. They are pricey, I must say, but so far the quality is pretty good. my feet became comfortable in them within minutes, and you can tighten them to the perfect fit. My only concern is the material eventually ripping, because if that happens then they would be useless.
