Excellent minimalist shoes, great for the gym or running. If you want to see your squats and deadlifts go up, wear these during. If you want to see your calves grow into gnarly cows of power, run in these. They are the perfect minimalist shoe. In the beginning they felt a little tight but after a few uses they broke in. If your normal size is already tight I would suggest going up a size in these, but if you have a little wiggle room in your normal VFF size then go with that size for these as they do stretch out. These are essential gear for any fitness enthusiast.

Was looking forward to these as I have had 3 pairs of VFF and really liked them so far. This pair was the first pair that felt tight and narrow. The tightness felt like it restricted foot movement across the top of my foot and my metatarsals felt squeezed. I'm sure they will stretch a little bit over time, but I don't think they would have stretched enough to feel comfortable. As a big guy who typically wears 14 in Altras, the options for minimalist footwear with good ground feel are very few.

I can't vouch for the shoe yet, they are for my husband who has trouble with his rubbing together, I hope they work for him. I can vouch for Zappos customer service though!! My husband wears a size 10 1/2 - 11, so I ordered the size 42 which looked very small when it arrived. I did an exchange online and received the size 43 less than 24 hours after I initiated the exchange. I returned the first pair to Zappos today. I've never heard of a company sending a replacement before they received the original and getting it here that quickly! Thank you Zappos for the excellent customer service.

he Zappos reps could not be more helpful.I needed to return a pair of "Vibrams" cuz they were too small. They faxed a return label to me and put a size larger in the mail asap.(without waiting for the return.) I got the new shoes back in like a day and half. TERRIFIC SERVICE and very helpful and friendly staff. I will def. buy again from this great company. Steve K.

Runs very small. I wear 43 in two other pairs of VFFs and these were painfully short. Order up a size from your regular VFFs.
