Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable and love the barefoot feeling These shoes combine the natural feeling of walking barefoot with protection from the elements. Because I was so excited to try these I ignored Vibram's instructions to get used to them gradually and wore them on a 1-mile walk on pavement and grass. Loved how centered and balanced I felt as I walked! They felt fine on pavement but felt FANTASTIC on the grass. My toes were able to splay and hug the natural surface fluctuations. I expected the toe compartments to be constricting or to rub uncomfortably on my toes, but these shoes really feel like gloves for the feet. I got used to the feeling within about 2 minutes. I recommend FiveFingers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution to knee and foot issues I purchased these after a great deal of research. I am a serious over pronator, and have severe arthritis in both my feet and my knees. I have always worn shoes with strong arch support and stability. However, my research had shown that many people with knee problems are actually better off in a barefoot shoe. I have to say after two weeks of wearing these as my shoes in the office, my knee and foot pain is significantly improved. I expected to have issues with overpronation, but my gait has actually improved and I don't have any pain in my ankles. I recently purchased a second pair, to keep at home (its mid winter now, and I don't really want to try wearing them outside, even with socks.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Cross-training and Walking I have a high arch and wide toe box (constantly blowout the sides of normal shoes), and the KMD Sport LS was the only FiveFingers that fit me. I'd get blisters in normal shoes and rug burn when cross-training without shoes. Did some research and bought size 37 and I wear a 7 in normal shoes. There is some space in the middle toes, but it doesn't affect my workout. I slowly transitioned into these as suggested. The blowouts, blisters, and rug burn weren't an issue with the KMDs, and my knee pain significantly decreased! Feels like my gate has improved from walking in them. I love them so much that I just ordered another pair! By far the most comfortable cross-training/walking shoe I've worn and still holding strong 5 months later!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I have had these shoes for over a year and have managed to run 5 miles in them. I worked my way up to that distance over time, but mainly I am pointing this out because I have flat feet and have been "fitted" for running shoes in the past. I was always been pushed towards running shoes that have a firm/firmer arch. Like another reviewer noted, over-pronators "need" this type of support. I found this to be untrue and learned the blister way and knee-hurting way that flat feet do not an over-pronator make. You can have flat feet and a neutral gait...., so back to my original point: for flat feet, these shoes proved not to be a problem and absolutely helped flexibility in my feet. I wear heels nearly daily and these shoes improved my balance and the overall feeling of well-being in my feet. I would recommend these to all runners-even people new to minimalist shoes. I would buy these again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this in spite of its name This fits nicely. I appreciate the laces, because my foot tends toward narrow. The toes are too long (except the big toe, which I fitted to) for my foot, but it doesn't affect the performance of the shoe. I found them super comfortable from the beginning. I did get heel blisters the first time I wore them. But I almost always do, and didn't wear socks. I don't think there's a lot of grip in these. I am not comfortable walking across a wet log in them, for instance. It's fun to squish thru mud on a hiking trail with these shoes on, although it can be cold out-of-season. I am new to running as a sport, but so far I like these a lot. The minimalist aspect seems to work for my style/body/foot. I don't like them on pavement, but since I'm new to running, I may change my mind as I get stronger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not for me I recently started training for a half marathon and started to experience knee, ankle and foot problems in the left leg. A friend recommended these so I decided to try them. Within less than half an hour of wearing these in the store I was pain free and sold! I gradually increased my usage of these as recommended when transitioning to a barefoot style shoe and eventually started running in them. The problem became evident when my long runs got over 5 miles, my toes were killing me by the end of my run. I didn't dare run without socks but at first I thought it would get better as i continued to break them in. Unfortunately it just got worse and I finally accepted defeat by exchanging them for a larger size which also caused my toes to hurt after a short run. I really wanted to love these but it seems the toe shoe is just not for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shoes for running, but inconsistent sizing I have gone through 2 pairs of KMD Sport (the blue and yellow ones with the strap), and recently replaced them with the KMD Sport LS. In general, the KMD Sport series fits my feet like a glove, they are very flexible and are excellent for running (I do a fair bit of both road and trail). However, I've noticed that the newest KMD Sport LS size is not as consistent as the blue/yellow version. In fact, the right shoe feels about 1/2 size smaller than the left shoe. It could just be a manufacturing defect, but make sure you try them on before you take them home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe I currently have 4 pairs of Vibrams. I started using them over 3 years ago when I was having problems with my knees while running. I have since ran numerous 1/2 marathons and 2 full marathons and a 1/2 Ironman. They take some getting used to but are so comfortable. Slowly work up your mileage.

Is it recommended to wear these with or without socks? If so, should I take this into consideration when selecting my size?

Asked by: PamGator
Wearing socks or not is a personal preference, but you do not need to size up if you are planning to wear toe-socks with these FiveFingers.
