    They did get wet and dried pretty fast in the sun.

    The upper section of the shoe is attached to the sole on the inside of the shoe so the stitching rubs the bottom of your foot making them uncomfortable to wear.

    I grew up practically barefoot on dirt roads and even as an adult always preferred shoes with minimal "support". I had no idea til recently that there were shoes designed to feel like you're barefoot! I did a lot of research and eventually settled on these based on appearance, style, and most importantly, price! When I first opened them up and put them on the fit was pretty darn snug and I was concerned I got a size too small. I'm about an 8-8.5 in women's shoes and got the XS figuring too tight was better than too big. I could feel how supportive the bands were and felt pretty comfortable in them right away (minus a little tightness). After a few hours to a day of wearing them though they relaxed slightly and now they fit me PERFECTLY.

    I have been wearing them for about a month now nearly all day every day. They're so comfortable and so unobtrusive that I've crawled into bed a few times with them on and didn't even think about it! I haven't had any issues at all about walking on various terrains. They provide exactly as much protection as you need to not get hurt or be bothered by walking on acorns, rocks, or whatever without taking away the feeling of being practically barefoot. I give them 4 stars though because I'm disappointed that the lycra touches the ground on all sides and after the month of wearing them a little rip has formed in the toe. I have done my share of walking on sidewalks, indoors, outdoors, and everywhere in between, but I was definitely hoping they'd last a little longer. I sew, so I'll be reinforcing the toe myself, but it'd be nice if they were more durable.

    I hear ZemGear is coming out with a running shoe in which the sole will come up and around so the lycra does NOT touch the ground. I'm definitely in line for those!

    I bought these shoes intending to use them in my barefoot running journey, but these shoes although they pop up on barefoot running are not designed for any hard work. I wore mine out in less than 2 weeks, and noticed holes in them within the first week. I have not even started the serious part of my workout program.
    Unless you are planning to use these shoes leisure activities don't purchase.

    Initially, I loved these shoes. They were comfortable and easy to get on. I wore them once to work and after one day of wear on a carpeted floor they were already worn very badly on the heel and toe. I wore them for the second time, walked less then a mile on concrete sidewalks and had a hole in the heels and toes on both shoes.

    Terrible waste of money.

    I've been taken with the barefoot / minimal shoe running craze and really like it. I typically start off running barefoot for as long as my feet can take it (asphalt street), then don my shoes that I've been carrying. I've tried the Vibram FiveFingers (Sprint model), the Luna sandals (Original model), and now the ZemGear (Playa model). I can say that I prefer the ZemGear at this time for the following reasons: 1) the ZemGears are the easiest to put on fast while in the middle of the run. 2) they are SUPER comfortable; much more so than the Fivefingers and even the Lunas. 3) no fussy toe pockets (FiveFingers) or fussy straps (Lunas) 4) they are lighter than the FiveFingers and maybe the Lunas, too. They are more like a sock. I hear they will deteriorate fast so we will have to see about that. My one-star deduction is that you can feel the upper/lower seam inside with your foot but I see why they designed it that way. It's a trade-off.

    I really wanted these shoes so bad but their platform base is tiny! Like seriously T I N Y. I mean sure I have wide feet but I'm not a Hobbit. My feet hung over the sides so badly. The length was perfect, the width, a disaster. These are advertised for people with wide feet on their website through faq but don't trust it. I'm really dissapointed.

    Very good shoe, I really enjoy wearing them. My only concern is the durability, as the top covering folds over the sole, making it vulnerable to whatever surface you are wearing it on. I have really been satisfied with their comfort, but then again, I can also run trails barefoot, so obviously wearing these shoes might not cause discomfort to my feet compared to other people. Easy to slip on, feel like socks. I have not tested them in an athletic setting, but I assume your foot might move a bit in these shoes due to their elasticity.

    Color Name: Black / AquaSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
    The product is fine, looks good, it's well made, and confortable, the only think I didn't completely like is the sole: it's too rigid for me, they are ok for walking on a soft surface like grass of sand, but not that comfortable for walking on pavement.
    If soles would be softer I would give this product a 5 stars rate.
    They are made in China.

    Important: some reviewers say that they are somehow big and advise to buy a smaller that usual size...don't be tricked! Buy your size.

    These shoes are as described. The description said good for wider feet and I am a 4e so I thought I would try them out. I wouldn't say they are wider than a 2e. I am also an 11.5 shoe and got the larges but i have about an extra half to three quarter inch at the toe. They seem well put together and I can't wait to try them out in different environments. The blue stripes also look awesome. This is my first shoe like this.
