by fromGreat feel but overpriced I bought these after seeing all of the positive reviews. The shoes feel great however the price is way too high for something with half the materials of a standard shoe. For the $100+ price, you'd think they at least be made in the USA, however these are still [*].

by fromQuestionable workmanship After less than a month, some of the rubber has become separated from the fabric on one of the little toes; Not what you'd expect for the price.

by fromGood Trainer but Still A Fad Review for FiveFinger Komodo Sport LS 2012Purchase: US[$] @ REIMiles Run/Worn: 137mi over 1mosTerrain: Asphalt, Trail, Concrete, Track, and VariableConditions: Rain, Mud, Creeks, Rocks, Heat i.e. 100+F DegreeRunning Style: Forefoot, Sprints, DistancePros: Lightweight, Form Fitting, Excellent Trainers for Forefoot/Midfoot Running, Comfortable for Short Mileage WearCons: Removable Footbed bunches up over foot when wet or sweaty esp during long runs, Cumbersome to Take On/Off Quickly, Poor Traction on Smooth Surfaces like wet Asphalt and Wood bridges, No support for extended runs, Pivots and Quick Turns near impossible with these shoesOverall: Quality Shoe that is great to walk around in and sport for small burst activities. Excellent shoes to reinforce Forefoot running style but if this is your first pair or you are new to forefoot running, be aware that you need to gradually work your mileage into these shoes. Not recommended as primary running shoes or trainers, and esp not recommended for distance running over 10+miles.

by fromExchanged I really like the concept and feel of these shoes. I dislike how they are one of the only vibram five fingers models that dont allow you to tighten at the heel. The decrative accents on the sides started to flake and peel after only a few days. I ended up returning them and getting the vibram KSO treksports (added bonus...no decrative accents to flake off on the sides and they dry super fast), which I absolutely love and will enjoy using for quite some time.

by fromAmazingly Comfortable Great 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.

by fromAlmost Barefoot I 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!

by fromGreat for the gym, not the trails After 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.

by fromFinally a pair that fits! I had tried the KSO and couldn't get a good fit for both feet (one is about a half size larger than the other). For whatever reason, these fit better, and the lacing system makes them easier to get on as well as allowing you to wear them looser if desired. Don't be put off if the fit initially feels too constricting. My larger foot measured exactly to a 41, and I would have been tempted to go a size larger if both feet were the same size. But after wearing them around for a few days they now just feel like a comfortable glove, as they are supposed to.
