    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    by fromGreat shoe for my first barefoot runs! I was apprehensive about spending so much on what I consider to be a specialized running shoe at first and am pleasantly surprised how well and how I feel motivated to get out there after wearing them. One concern I've overcome is in how they fit based on others' reviews. I overcame this by 1) being critical of where my toes lie (opting for a true-to-size fit; 2) taking others' recommendations on different lacing patterns with an excellent payoff. They do fit me like a glove.

    by fromGood shoes, not as wide as New Balance I've tried these on in the local store, along with Vibram Five Fingers and New Balance MT10v2 Minimus Trail-Running Shoes and found that for me, with the wider feet, it's better to have New Balance shoes which gave me more space in toe box and were generally wider. I also felt some pressure from the ridges on the sides. At the end I paid extra $10 and got New Balance but it was tough to make a choice. Vibrams felt like too much work to put them on and I wasn't comfortable with the idea to wear them to work comparing to wearing NB shoes. I guess it all comes down to how you feel in them and how your feet fits in them but I do think they are good shoes.

    by fromGreat Shoe So far I've mainly used them on an indoor track where they work great. But I've also worn them on birding walks. In cold weather they can be a tad cold, but my feet have a tendency to get cold, so your experience my vary.

    by fromGreat low profile and light weight shoe I have used these several times for walking around and even a few road runs. They take a little getting used to (I have an alternate low profile shoe I run in) but once your feet adjust they are like a glove (pun intended)

    by fromExcellent barefoot shoe This is my third pair of Trail Gloves, which last me about a year running approximately 50 miles a week on streets and trails. This year's is slightly redesigned with a roomier toe box. Overall this is an excellent barefoot runner -- hard and flexible bottom plate that protects your feet but allows you to feel the ground, lightweight, comfortable, roomy toe box.

    by fromFeet in the game Great tactile feel. As you walk or run, you get a sense that your feet are spreading out and your toes are grasping the terrain. These shoes are like ballet slippers as far as ankle support goes; however, I feel less apt to suffer a sprain because appropriate muscles are used for support instead of restrictive shoe design. The only issue I have is the cushioning is minimal in the heel for use on concrete. I have been wearing these for around town and light workouts for about a month. They are very comfortable and almost feel like a foot and ankle massage as you move. Very different feel from traditional shoes. Definitely recommend giving these a try.

    by fromMany pluses only one minus. I wore these shoes for a week to break them in. I would do a cross fit workout in them once a week. I even took them on a hike. They were great! I was looking to switch out my Five Fingers because little rocks get stuck between my toes when I do my trail runs and I didn't want to stop and fix every time this happened. My first trail run in these shoes gave me blisters on both feet on the inside of my foot near the ball of my foot. It was from the plastic design on the outside of the shoe. I thought it might be just bad luck so I waited two weeks and tried it again. The same thing happened. Too bad, I really liked the shoe.
