"climb, hike, run, grocery store, YOU NAME IT!"
These were my very first pair of Five Fingers and have taken first place on my list of favorite shoes. They are so versatile, so stylish, but most importantly SO COMFORTABLE! It did not take long for me to get used to these at all! I began wearing them for only a few hours a day and then BAM! all day everyday transition could not be easier. Vibram is great! It is light weight, waterproof, provides support and durability I feel like I get an extra little burst of energy when I slip into these puppies which is wonderful because I COULD USE IT!!
"The best shoes for your feet. Bar none."
I ordered my first pair of Five Fingers over a year ago. I was developing a hammer toe on my left foot and had experienced plantar fasciitis for years. I wore orthotics religiously to prevent the pain and burning. Since wearing Five Fingers 90% of the time (5% barefoot and 5% in regular shoes) I have not experienced any plantar fasciitis and the hammer toe is straight and only slightly reddened. I recommend that you wear your Five Fingers with toe socks. For hiking and other forms of exercise, I like the lace-up varieties. They tend to have thicker soles so the goat heads and rocks are less of a problem and you can get them snug enough for water sports.
When I wear these I feel like I'm not wearing any shoes at all and it is extremely comfortable. They are good for hiking, running, casual walking, or just looking awesome. I suggest wearing the Ininji socks with them though or they will begin to smell. But they still are great!
"Great for Dog Agility. Comfortable and luv pink"
These are great five fingers. Tried Speed variety1st & they didn't fit well in toes. These fit great. they don't all fit the same even when they are the same size. I wear these for running agility with my dog where I am accelerating, decelerating and turning a lot. They are great on the indoor soccer turf. With the five toes, I really feel like I can accelerate without tripping over my feet. Go with the lace varieties if you are going to use them for running around like this. I think it give a little better control. The only thing lacking is the sole can be a bit slippery on the grass. I
I just got these about a week ago, they are an upgrade from my Vibram Bikilas which have been worn for so often and so long that they are falling apart!So far I like these much better than the Bikilas. They are VERY comfortable. I love the adjustable lace thingies because you can get the tightness you want without putting too much pressure on your foot. The main reason I didn't like the Bikilas is that the strap going across the top of my foot was annoying. So these are perfect! I haven't worn "normal" shoes in at least 3 years, barefoot is best!
"I would wear these all the time if I could!"
I got a pair about two months ago and have worn them running, camping, hiking, walking around campus, and pretty much everywhere else. They are so comfortable once you get used to them. These helped me switch to a fore/mid foot strike while running and I improved my mile pace by about 30 seconds! They're really easy to wash; I soak them in a borax/water mix and then wash as directed. I also use the Nike+ sensor while running and these work great with it after I bought a sensor pouch (Nathan brand). I am very satisfied and hope to get another pair soon.
I have had these shoes for about 4 months now and I love them! I've wore them hiking, shopping and working. When my feet hurt from wearing my old shoes I put them on, and they make my feet feel happy again. I have weird shaped feet, these shoes fit them better than anything else I've ever put on them. I would recommend these shoes to anyone who is tired of wearing shoes that don't fit quiet right. They are wonderful!
