This is my second pair of Five Fingers as the first finally just gave out after a lot of use. I use these for water sports, pool, ocean, lake, river, washing cars, and just kicking around. They are much better for me than flip flops for traction and comfort. This style is a bit better for me because there is a bit more material on top holding my feet in. I make no claims as to the physical pluses for these but I definitely like the 'stretch' I get at the calves and ankles and if I do need to run I know I can. I would not hesitate to run on trails with these. All in all I think these are great shoes. Sizing can be tricky so do your homework.

These are one of the most awesome shoes ever made! Slip these on and you can't help but answer everyone's questions about them. Everyone else seems to want a pair but just can't commit. If you like walking barefoot then these are the most comfortable shoes around, feels like going about in socks. Just don't wear them in rain...nothing feels you yuckier than these when they are wet. Take them off if it rains, you're all but barefoot already anyway. Also be very careful if wearing them on wet rocks or grass...you will slide. The sole is not made for wet grip. These have to be one of the best shoes for driving...you can feel the pedals perfectly, they can't slip around or fall off or get stuck like flip flops. Bonus they give your toes better protection vs driving with bare soles, especially if you like to engage the clutch toes first. Not great for really cold days as you will soon feel the cold. Just for kicks I tested them on freshly laid asphalt. I could walk on it for almost 5 minutes before the soles got too hot to keep on my feet any longer. The workers thought I was nuts. Overall great, fun shoes that will get noticed.

I got these for my boyfriend because I love my Vibram Vi-Bs so much, and now he loves his own! This is a fantastic first pair in his Vibram collection that will be sure to grow. Thanks to Zappos, I ordered 42 and 43 for his size 10½ and kept the 43. Woot!

Fits like a glove. Glad I got a half size larger. If your foot size varies from time to time with shoes. I recommend going a half size up.

These shoes fit like a glove and are extremely comfortable, almost like wearing nothing at all. My only difficulty is getting them on my feet. Sometimes they slip right on. But if my toes are uncooperative, several minutes may be required. I suppose this has more to do with my toes than with the shoes.
