Vibram FiveFingers KMD Sport LS Multisport Shoes - Men'sis rated4.4out of5by15.
Rated5out of5byTim MelanderfromLove em!I had a pair of Vibram Five Fingers, but they were the KSO and the soles wore out in one year with not a lot of running. So I got these and can tell it has much more sole. In fact this is great for situations where you want to wear them camping and there are rock to walk on or even wading in the lake or river.

Rated4out of5byStar Wars MikefromGreat for the gym, not the trailsAfter a weak of getting used to these I fell in love and will never go back to regular shoes again. I used these for everything for the first year, but ran into a couple problems. I kept getting holes in between the first and second toe on the big toe. Usually within the first couple of months which for a $100 plus shoe was not cool, however REI took care of me each time with a replacement. After a bit I came to the conclusion that the toe flexibility combined with the thinner sole of this model meant that when I hiked on the local horse trails, which are very uneven, I was exposing the soft fabric between the toes to the ground. Also, they don't have the best traction on softer, sandier surfaces. As a result I switched to the KSO trek for outdoor activities and use the KMD's exclusivly for my gym shoes. Sine then I could not be happier. They are light wieght which is great for aerobic activities and the thin flat sole is great for deadlifts and squats. Plus, I am not haveing the problems with the holes in the toes. So if your are looking for something to use in the gym or for everyday walking these are great, but if you want something for walking or running outdoors on uneven dirt trails I would go with something like the KSO trek for it's more aggressive tread pattern and stiffer toes.

Rated5out of5byReynstormfromwiggle my toesI bought these because I'm planning a thru-hike next year, and I had heard that they can improve foot and leg strength and balance. I don't know if my feet are any stronger, but these have become my go-to shoes. I like walking around barefoot, and these are the next best thing. Hopefully, they'll also hulk-out my toes and flat arches so I can hike for months on end without much trouble.
I've only noticed one problem with fit: these shoes are excellent at reminding me to cut my toenails. If they get even a little bit long, my big toes feel cramped. I guess that's to be expected with shoes that are really just a second skin (as well as poor arch support, which is a moot point with my flat feet), so I'm not worried about it.

Rated5out of5byScoutmaster PetefromGreat shoes - worth the priceI just wore out my third pair of Bikila LS so I decided to try the KomodoSport LS. They're totally worth the extra $20. I've put over a hundred miles on them with no noticable wear. You get just a little more support too. I'll be buying these again.

Rated5out of5bytwigglebitfromThe Spread FootI use these shoes exclusively, having thrown away all of my other shoes after experiencing these. I would like to say, for running, I was told to get the shoe that fits the SMALLER of my two feet so that my foot does not slide; but I only wear five fingers now exclusively to walk in and they have been a godsend. I only wish they made a pair AS SHOES, that is with SINGLE COLORS, not using running patterns and neon highlights.
Also, I like the lacing system. The drawstring allows me to adjust the fit PERFECTLY each time. And on the velco pair I have, just pull and attach--how simple life can be!

Rated5out of5byhisandherrsfromFirst pair of Vibram shoesThis shoe is great and I would recommend it to everyone. The only con is the inserts tend to move and become uncomfortable so I removed them. Thats it, I suggest you get a pair.

Rated4out of5byMountainMike33fromAlmost BarefootI have worn these shoes now for 8 and 12 hour shifts where I'm on my feet at least 75% of the time in a hospital with hard floors. I've also taken several long walks outdoors on various types of terrain. I was after the barefoot feel, which is exactly what I got, except that my feet didn't feel sharp points (rocks, etc) when I stepped on them. The only thing I was not crazy about was the color; I would have preferred all black. Also, I haven't worn them with socks yet and they're doing awesome!

Rated4out of5byKCAL11fromAmazingly ComfortableGreat shoe to wear while doing hikes, trail runs, beach runs, etc. Very comfortable, very light. Gives you the bare-foot feel with a little support and grip. Easy to clean after a day at the tidepools or a hike in the redwoods. Caution: build up your endurance with them as you are going to be working different muscle groups. Do not go hardcore too fast and slowly work your way into the coolest shoes you will own.
