Rated4out of5bysfgamchickfromGreat runs and indoor workoutsI've been running in these for a month now and I'm extremely happy with them. They are comfy and durable, yet mold to my foot and help me have good running form.
These are pretty hard to put on the first few times, but after a few days, they go on with ease. They felt great in the store, but one foot gave me blisters after a few runs. Put some vaseline on my heel and have not had the problem since.

Rated5out of5byZen walkerfromBest walkers everI walk my dog 3-5 miles daily and these are great for walking on concrete sidewalks. Improves balance and sense of connection with the ground. Gives legs a good work out, too. It didn't take me long to get used to them because I already had a pair of Ninja trek split toe shoes by ZEM and had the routine of walking so ball of foot strikes ground first. I'm a septuagenarian and totally recommend these shoes improving balance. I get lots of compliments from young kids to old people who think these shoes are great looking,(I got the black and orange ones). Regardless, I wear them with shorts, slacks and even wore them with a skirt and got several compliments that day. Be daring and buy these.

Rated5out of5byMaryKatefromGreat running showMy third pair of Five Fingers, and these might be my favorite. The laces make it a bit easier to get them on, and the fit is snug, but comfortable. I've been wearing them running outdoors as I ease back in to running on pavement after a long Wisconsin winter, and they've been great. My feet are a bit sore, but getting better as I get accustomed to running on concrete again.

Rated5out of5bykatjohn1fromThey look more like shoes with laces.These have turned into my favorite shoes. I wear them on runs and to gym classes for kickboxing and step classes. Love that they have laces and I think they are better looking.

Rated5out of5bycoastal_kayaker87fromThe Best Investment For Your FeetMy husband and I each purchased a pair of the Vibram Komodo Sport LS over a year ago. They have been fantastic and I firmly believe that this was one of the best investments I could have made for the health of my feet and the overall health of my body. The retail price was discouraging for us at first; however, we haven't had to contend with injuries, expensive orthotics, or time spend in physical therapy since we've had these shoes and moved away from standard heel-strike-inducing athletic shoes.
Just as Vibram and REI recommend, I would STRONGLY encourage every new FiveFingers owner to slowly work into wearing and running in these shoes - even if you already spend much of your time barefoot. It felt so good to run in them the first time, I ignored the warnings to go short distances at first and taxed my still-adapting feet and legs too far too fast. After this I was more careful and steadily increased usage until I could wear them around the house, traveling, at the gym, or on trail hikes for hours without even noticing that they're on my feet.
Through trial and error I found that each style of FiveFingers may fit differently. I loved my Komodo Sports so much that I ordered a pair of the classic Vibram foot gloves in the same size (38). I could barely get them on my feet, and was surprised to find that I took a 39 or 40 in that style. When I first started wearing the Komodo Sports, my big toes bumped the ends of the toe channel and they felt snug (which is supposed to be a good initial fit). After a few weeks of regular wear, I found that all of my other shoes fit looser than usual. In the year that I've worn these FIveFingers, my shoe size has decreased from an 8 to a 7.5, all because my arches have strengthened.
My husband and I have both noticed that our balance, overall posture, foot and ankle strength, and even bunions have improved since wearing these shoes. They are easy to clean in the washing machine and air dry fairly quickly, though my husband's shoes were left outside for a week after a wet hike and developed mold/mildew and a semi-permanent smell inside the toes, which is tough to get out unless you use a toothbrush. The reflective decals on both of our pairs have worn or been peeled off by multiple washings, though the nylon material underneath is still sound after going through so many wash cycles. I would love to use Injinji socks with these shoes for cold weather insulation, but they conform to my feet so well that it would be hard to fit them in.
I love my Komodo Sports so much that I am tempted to get another pair of FiveFingers. If you can school yourself to integrate them into your routine slowly and carefully, these would be great shoes for a natural transition.
