I bouthg these kso's and just fell in love whith them when i tried them on. The day they came in the mail i used them outdoors and i noticed uncom uncomfortable pain and i look at the shoe and there is a huge bump where the forefoot is in the footbed and i wanted to exchange them for different ones cuz i beleive these are defects and the pain got worse everytime i used them but unfortunately i cant because it has to be brand new out of the box condtion to return it and thats a bunch off bull that paid for these and im getting really bad pain and cant do nothing about it to exchange and etc.
I really love these because they feel great on my feet. The only thing that sucks is that they get stinky when they get wet. My solution is the washing machine. Buy some good soap and give them a round in the wash every few weeks and you will be fine!
I love these shoes. I measured my foot according to their instructions but maybe should have bought one size up. Maybe not super great as water shoes which I was led to believe but as soon as they wear out I'll be buying a new pair.
I purchased these in-store about a year ago when I was beginning to look for a minimalist-style running shoe. These have really been great the whole time. I read some reviews that said they had problems with the seams coming apart or being painful, but I have had none of those problems. The shoes are ridiculously comfortable, and they perform as expected while running. They promote better running form and posture, and the sole protects against small/medium rocks, etc. in the road.Overall, great buy. Would recommend to anyone looking for a minimalist running shoe.
"Fantastic shoes, very comfortable and durable!"
I've been a big fan / long-term owner of Vibram's footwear for a while, and these are some of the best. For a more basic model, they still hold up well doing most of what i do, including trail running and most hiking. Just remember to measure your feet and use vibram's size chart.
These shoes are all-around, multi-purpose shoes that are good for everything from light hiking to water sports. They are comfortable once they are broken in, but it takes a while to get used to the feeling. Once you are used to them, though, they are very comfortable shoes. I wouldn't recommend them just for casual use, but if you are going to use them for water sports, light hiking, running, or other outdoor activities, then they would be a good purchase.
I have had the KSO for around 10 months now and have put about 200 miles running 600 miles walking and a tough mudder on them. still holding up fine but a little smelly from lack of socks. i would buy another pair right now but i cant justify the purchase since mine are still in great condition. These are my daily shoes and since wearing them i have no knee hip or back pain which i get frequently from traditional running.
"Fun shoe but not great quality ... still happy user^^"
I have been using it for over two years. They are comfortable but because I rinse it with water (no soap though) every time I use, its rubber part started to come off after six months. I use Shoe GOO to repair it, but not a big success. I still love it and bought another pair. My advice is ... DO NOT RINSE IT TOO OFTEN!
I found these shoes for a great price and couldn't pass them up. I already have the mens treksport and love them. When these kso first came in they were a bit tight in the big toe. After 9 or 10 times wearing them they fit even better than the treksport. I don't like shoes because of SFS(sweaty feet syndrome), and these don't bother me at all. If you can find a coupon to cut the big price, I'd recommend kso's and treksports any day. Heck, buy them without a coupon code, they are GREAT!
Cannot tell you how much these shoes impacted my life. I ran everyday in these shoes last year on pavement, on trails, through puddles, on the golf course, and on the treadmill. I ended up messing my foot up pretty bad after crushing my pinky toe on a rock. (Definitely hurt) But in the end I purchased another pair of Vibrams and have since cut back my usage to light hiking, primarily on softer terrain. These shoes are great for wet conditions and off the beaten path. They also feel incredible while walking through the grass. I would recommend a pair to anyone who enjoys the outdoors even a little bit
