Plus, my toe area got tighter as I walked, going from a little snug to tight.
Buy a shoe size up, I'm a 7.5 and the 38 size was way small.
Even after going up two sizes from my measured size, the Sprints are way too tight in the toes.

I am female, 44 years old, 5'6, 50 lbs. overweight, but fairly strong. I have tried every "regular" running/walking shoe on the market and have had problems with every one. Every time I walk or jog, I end up with blisters on the pad of my foot behind my toes. An orthopedic doc told me I needed a custom insert made because I have high arches. That was a waste of time and money. These shoes have completely eliminated the problem. I have been wearing them for a little over a month. I started out with short walks on a treadmill, then longer walks in the neighborhood, and now am walking/jogging for an hour a day. I have definitely had some sore muscles within my feet - I'm assuming from muscles that have never been used - but nothing painful. No blisters. Mine are a size 40 and they fit fairly snugly. I almost returned them because my big toe felt a little too snug in the beginning. I'm glad I didn't because now they are perfect. I've even gotten used to the look of them. I thought my teenagers would laugh at me, but they thought they look cool (my husband, of course, did laugh however!) Maybe they worked well for me because I hate shoes and go barefoot whenever possible. I wear flipflops until the snow starts to fall. I have the Sprint in a grey/hawaiian ocean and like the look of them. They were $80. They are easy to put on and I love not having to mess with socks. I never write reviews of things (although I rely on them when I buy things) but feel so strongly about these that I felt I had an obligation to report my success with these.

The best advice I can give is to go to the store and try these on. Even if you measure your feet, the shoes will still fit differently and varies by design. I went to the store and the first measured my foot. They said I needed a 39 (normally, I am a size 7, with an average to narrow width). Before going to the store, I read on the Vibram website about the various styles. From the site, I had narrowed it down to the Sprint. I was looking for the most versatile shoe, which as described on the site, it fit. I am 35 years old female, average weight, and have diagnosed degenerative disc disease in my back, aka - lower back pain. Any kind of shoe with a heel, kills my back after a very short while. I am traditionally a Crocs, Uggs, and Birkenstocks, kind of girl. I only wear what is comfortable.

At the store, I tried on the Sprint, size 39. They seemed a little snug in the toe, but the sales person that is how they are supposed to fit, little snug, but not tight. They seemed comfortable enough and not knowing what they were supposed to feel like, I bought them. I went home and then went for a 20 minute, slow-average walk. I am not an athelete by any stretch of the imagination, but I wanted to break them in a little. About half way into the walk, I started to feel some pain in the bottom of the heel of my foot and on the bottom of my big toe. Of course, I was 10 minutes from home, so it took another 10 to get back. These blisters were at the bottom of my foot, not the backs or sides, where blisters normally occur on new shoes. By the time I got home, I had large (2 inches) on the bottom of both of my heels and 1/2 inch on each big toe. It hurt so much to walk! Plus, my toe area got tighter as I walked, going from a little snug to tight.

I run for exercise and for fun. Been running for over two decades. Long/short, I always thought I needed an extremely well-padded shoe. Thought my running days were ending - couldn't bend my right knee after a run, and couldn't walk barefoot around the house after a run. Especially after a run, walking barefoot around the house was painful. It felt like the bones of my feet were jabbing down into the floor. But why were my kids running around the house barefoot with no trouble? Age, I thought. But they're teenagers now.

Started eliminating padding from my shoes and running completely barefoot on grassy fields a mile or two before or after runs. Ran a mile or two barefoot on my treadmill. I concentrated on not landing on my heel, really listened to how it felt to run. I realized I needed to build up all kinds of muscles I hadn't been using.

Barefoot started to feel so good and so right that I started taking off my running shoes mid-run. Switched to my daughter's water shoes because they have so little padding. In the water shoes I could go my regular 5-6 mile route. I realized that my padded shoes let me cheat when I got tired. I worked to build up calf, thigh, and even abdominal muscles that I don't think I was using properly before.

Then my daughter went off to camp and took her water shoes.

I went out completely barefoot - on the pavement - and it felt great! Until I got about 3 miles out and the skin on the bottom of my feet started to blister.

I wasn't interested in taking the time to build up callouses on my feet, so I went out that day and bought the Fivefingers.

I saved money and avoided buying socks.
