Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rubs ankle wrong I bought these to replace a pair of Vibram FiveFingers bikilias that I've been using for the past four years and are starting to show some wear. Those have some padding on the back of the ankle and I've always found them very comfortable. I got these Trek Ascent shoes since I do a lot of hiking these days. These are not padded around the ankle at all and are very painful and rub. Dirt gets in there and rubs even worse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these, but... These shoes feel great. I have not worn them out hiking yet, as I usually wear my older Vibrams out in the elements. :) In September I got these when I was shopping for a pair for my teen granddaughter, who was intrigued and wanted to try fivefingers. She didn't want the splashy colors, just simple black and these fit the bill perfectly. I liked them so much I got a pair for myself. Occasionally, granddaughter wears them to school, and everyday to her after school job. Says she loves them. I love the way they feel! The sole is extremely comfortable as I trot up and down stairs all day at the school where I work. Two things I do not like about these shoes -- and the reason for not giving them 5 stars -- is: 1) the tongue drifts to the outside (a pet peeve of mine -- I want the tongue to stay centered, so my bare feet are not exposed to the laces; 2) after just a few hours of wear I can detect an odor. The odor clears easily when I wash them in cold water and baking soda, but they stink again after just a couple hours of wearing them. I've asked people at school if they can smell them and they assure me they cannot. I have four other pairs of fivefingers and these are the only ones that have this problem. One other issue with this particular pair is that a couple weeks ago I noticed a very small hole in the fabric on top of the left big toe pocket. These shoes were barely two months old when I noticed the hole and I do not wear them every day. Plan to return them this weekend, but love them so much, I'm hoping I can get a replacement pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vibrant 5 finger trek shoes I love the shoes however the shoelace holes are easily broken. Making the fit uncomfortable on the top sliding the tongue to one side while wearing them. Mine lasted 2 1/2 weeks when I returned to REI they didn't have the shoe I wanted or a pair in my size that wasn't the display model that was stretched out from people trying them of the 1 type they did carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes The best shoes I've ever owned! I have a wide foot and they still fit amazingly. Very light and airy. The soles have great grip. I went into REI and they sized my foot but they didn't have my size so I ordered them online from and they fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome.....against all odds Even with a HIGH instep, wore these on concrete for a solid 9 hours for the 1st time without a break in period.....and go 12 hour days without a thought. Would have never believed it and buying more!

Does anyone else detect n odor like the earlier reviewer of this style?

Asked by: Ann Schurman
I don't have this model, but I have detected odors after a few days. I don't want to bother to wash them often, so i just wear them with toe socks. Light socks for hot days, heavier socks for cooler days. Some of the heavier toe socks have thick padded soles which are nice if you do much walking on concrete.

Can these be used in water? Treking through cascades for example.

Asked by: JustLive
The FiveFingers Trek Ascent Shoes can get wet and be used in some water, but they are not intended to be used as a water shoe.
