Also good to note: I purchased the all black split toes, and haven't noticed any stares or received any questions about the shoes. Seems the split toe isn't as noticeable as I initially feared (although those who I've shown the shoe to have exclaimed that it looks like I have faun feet!) If you're worried about getting weird looks or comments, I would say stick with the all black combination.
EDIT: Decided to update this, and let everyone know that after 5 months of hard wear, these were done :( I loved my Zems, and wore them all over -- a trip to San Diego put many many miles on these shoes! I did begin weight training with them, and they were fantastic in that arena as well. Unfortunatly, the toes on both shoes got holes worn through where the seams lay. It is possibly just the way I walk that caused this wear, so I don't discourage others from purchasing.
I was at first surprised that the material was completely soft over the entire body of the shoe, but now that I've worn them for about a week I really like it. It will, however, get you some comments about how it "looks like you're wearing socks/slippers."
The sole is very thin, and at first I wasn't sure how these would feel since my previous everyday shoe has two double-layered Dr. Scholl's foam inserts, but wow my feet feel great in these. I actually wore my old shoes (the ones with the inserts) into work after wearing these for 3 days, and over the distance from my car to my desk, my feet were killing me. I put on these shoes again and it actually seemed to rejuvenate my feet.
These are awesome, and all my friends think they look cool (added bonus).
I rated 4/5 because I'm not sure how long they'll last since the fabric wraps around the sides of the sole, which seems like it'll lead to torn fabric at some point in the near future. If they last more than two months I'll probably update.
I had been going back and forth trying to decide between these and a pair of Adipures. I purchased the Adipures first, but I really struggle with making the smaller toes get in their place. To me, the ZEMgear looks better than the Adipures and I don't have the issue with my pinky toe not knowing where to go. ZEMs are more comfortable when doing floor stretching and they can be thrown in the wash if they funky.
These appealed to me more than those that have individual sections for each toe. I bought them for Karate when training outside on concrete and grass. Now I wear them casually around the garden and out to the shops. People do give your feet some strange looks! The only issue was that on one of the shoes the ands were not properly attached so they had to replace that pair. I have a pair of the Terras just received last week and one of the bands on those is not properly attached for about 2 inches. They are going to have to replace those too.
The other complaint is the shortage in various sizes. I take a 12.
They were the perfect fit for my size. The "barefoot" feel of the thin material was the real surprise. It felt like I was wearing a pair of tightly snug and somewhat tough socks. The hard floor was noticeable (without the cushioning feeling from normal shoes), yet didn't feel too hard.
I currently own and use extensively a different but almost identical pair of split toe "barefoot" shoes, and they feel great while running.
Definitely a good bang for your buck.

Schuhe passen wie beschrieben.
Nehme die Schuhe zum fitness und zum laufen sind sie sehr angenehm.
Allerdings gibt es auch was negatives zu berichten: Obwohl ich absolut keine Schweissfüsse habe rochen die Schuhe nach dem Training bereits sehr stark nach keine Ahnung was.Aber nicht angenehm.
Habe Sie dann mal einer Wäsche mit Waschmittel unterzogen.Geruch hat nachgelassen,aber nicht weg.
Ist warscheinlich das Material.
