Rated4out of5bymindbendafromRelaxingI normally wear mine around the house. They are a great relief after wearing steel toe boots all day. They also help in conditioning the muscles in my feet for my distance running and playing basketball.

Rated4out of5bysarah atchisonfromouch!i have a pair of vibrams that i LOVE and use all the time for running and working out as well as for just wearing around every day. i wanted another pair that i could use just for every day use. i was hoping these would be the ones (i liked that they were simply black), but when i wore them around the house for a little bit i noticed that the tab at the back of the heel rubbed badly on my achilles and was very uncomfortable. unfortunately, i had to return them because i think that if i wore them walking around for a long period of time they would rub my achilles raw!

Rated5out of5byMeatfromEasy slip-on and off. Great fit.These are great for walking around town, hiking (although slippery), and crossing rivers (but NOT swimming).
They slip off easily if you try treading water at all, so do not wear them rafting if you plan on falling out of the raft. I wore them in Costa Rica through slippery terrain, rivers, and rocks, and it was perfect for that that. Hiking is possible (and superior) if you are excellent at barefoot/sandals style hiking (not for everyone).
I imagine they would be terrible on grass, because they are completely slick on the bottom (like the bottom of your foot).
