Rated5out of5byDarrrmafromGreat buyI was hesitant about purchasing Vibrams and did not want to pay over 100 dollars to find out they were not what I wanted. So I found these at half price on the REI outlet. I LOVE these shoes. I wear them whenever I can because they are so comfortable. I have walked, jogged, and hiked in them. I also wear them when I'm out shopping. I will definitely be purchasing Vibrams in the future.

Rated5out of5byLorfromNew Favorite ShoesLove these shoes. I would recommend sizing down if you are unsure. Mine fit perfectly when I got them and then stretched a bit (I wish I had gotten a size down but I haven't had any problems). These shoes have great traction. I have ditched my older five fingers that are made for running. These Treks have a thicker sole so they are more comfortable on your feet when you hit a rock, etc. I never want to take these off!

Rated5out of5byJesseRothfromI love these shoes!!!I love putting these shoes on, even though it takes about 30 seconds longer than regular tennis shoes, because it feels so good to walk in them. I walk around Lake Merritt (3 miles) several times a week, and when I walk in these it feels like I get a bigger workout - my feet muscles and ALL my leg muscles get to stretch out & work. I walk on teh grass as much as possible because that feels best, but these soles are solid & cushioned enough that I can walk on the sidewalk, too, with no discomfort. I had the lighter Vibram toe-shoes before & loved them, but my feet got cold & wet in the winter & I didn't like them on pavement, and when I wore them for a riverwalk recently I realized they had very little traction. These shoes are a revelation: with the wool knee-length toe-socks (yes!), my feet stay warm & dry all winter long. Presto - more exercise & a happier camper!

Rated5out of5byPSSfromProduct is exactly as advertisedAfter getting no help from a podiatrist to solve foot pain, I tried these shoes and now wear them daily for pain-free walking, hiking, and jogging. As advertised, take a little time to get used to them. Break yourself in gradually to get used to using different muscles.

Rated5out of5byMVHarveyfromLove These!This is my fifth pair of Vibram Five Fingers. I bought these to repleace my Treksports after I tore the toe off in crossfit. I love trail running in my KSOs, but the tread on the Treks (and the Treksports) is so much better for the rocky trails that I run.
I like that the leather is more durable and much more comfortable than the synthetic fabrics used on my other VFFs. These don't provide as much ground feel as my KSOs, Sprints, or Classics, but again, they are perfect for the shale covered trails I run. And they are very comportable in colder weather without socks. I can't wait to try them next summer to see how the leather breathes when its more warm.
These shoes are also very comfortable on asphalt and concrete, but I think that wearing them on these surfaces wears the tread out too fast.
