Prior to this purchase, I owned four pair of Vibram FiveFingers Vibram Fivefingers Bikila LS Sport Shoes, two pair of Fila Skeletoes Fila Women's Skele-Toes 2.0 Slip-On Fashion Sneaker], and one pair of Teva Zilch [[ASIN:B00566SN84 Teva Women's Zilch Flexible Sandal. I bought the Wonder Glove in both black and aluminum, which is a nice neutral light khaki.
As a woman in a corporate environment, these are now my go-to barefoots. It's a challenge to make any kind of a barefoot shoe work with business casual attire, but these fit the bill. Even without the added benefit of being a barefoot shoe, they're just plain cute. The mesh fabric on the sides of the shoes wipes clean, even from mud, and the leather toe and heel have resisted scuffing despite wear virtually every day.
As for the barefoot experience, these are a zero drop shoe with a thin Vibram sole. Because of that, they provide great ground feel, but I'm not sure I'd wear them for a hike in the woods. But that's not the point of these shoes - they're intended for those of us who want to embrace the barefoot movement every day in all settings.
Note: If you're new to the barefoot movement, you need to adapt slowly, as the muscles in your feet will make you sorry if you don't.Read more ›
They are what they're described as in terms of their name.. Wonder Glove. I bought them for work and I am constantly moving and running and jumping. They are barefoot's so don't expect a ton of support but I'm of the mindset that living as naturally as possible is the way to be; these are definitely only one degree away from not having shoes on without cutting your foot on that piece of glass. The Vibram sole is another reason I splurged! For the mary jane aspect, I've always had issues with shoes that are too tight on the top of my foot but this strap feels very soft and I haven't had any irritation. The strap and button on the side stays on when I want and comes off when I want it to so no complaints there either.
Overall great shoe and I would definitely recommend them for someone who needs a well made shoe that is as light as air..
PS I was wondering about working out in them and so far I've done some light jogging, walking and a spin class in them.. No complaints whatsoever but I will not be going down in the Grand Canyon in them next time we go!!
Also, I have the light grey/stone version and EVERYONE at work loves them.. I get a lot of compliments and comments about the subtle swirl design on the outer toe. Adorable..
I purchased my first pair of Merrell barefoots 2 years ago, they were black and more sporty than these and they were great but less than attractive with business casual. I purchased my first pair of this style a year ago, another black pair and I wear them DAILY and they look fine with business casual attire. I just expanded with a second pair, a tan pair they call rucksack, and they look much better than the black pair with khaki pants.
Barefoot style are not for everyone but these shoes worked for me when Danskos, regular Merrells, Born, Clark's, Sperry's etc., all failed!
Th sizing runs small. I wear and 8 womens New Balance and a 6.5 in this shoe so keep that in mind when ordering. They are called "gloves" because they are suppose to fit your foot with little to no wiggle room. There is elastic around the heel area so they aren't uncomfortable if they fit closely. If you do not fit them correctly, they are less comfortable and will likely cause blisters.
