BUT, these are the best Vibrams to me for one major reason above all others, and that is because of the anti-microbial sock liner stitched into the shoe itself. If you are a fan of Vibrams, then you know The Funk. That gnarly, all-encompassing face-punch of a smell that always hits your nostrils as soon as the shoes come off from a day's use. Eesh, I've taken off a new pair of Vibram shoes after a day of use only to be sidewinded by that nose-kicking aroma.
These babies? No Funk. Not even a hint. Granted, I've only had the shoes for about a day, so I will adjust this review accordingly after I have spent more time with them, but the Vibram Funk is something that I have always dealt with, from the very first day I ever took off my first pair of Vibrams after only walking around town.
My feet feel amazing in them, and they don't smell like crap after a long day's work. I don't think I could ever purchase another pair of Vibrams without the same anti-microbial technology.
3rd day of use - Still awesome, feet still don't smell, and the shoes themselves still have no Funk. Stuffed my nose in em' after a long workout, and got a whiff of only slightly brand new shoe, which is amazing to me. After about an hour, the shoes had no smell whatsoever, aside from the hemp, which is pleasant.
How is it that I am the first to review this shoe on Amazon?! If you love Vibrams, you NEED these shoes. Everything you want from Five Fingers, yet without the one glaring flaw in all Vibrams (so far). I'll be taking these feet gloves on a trip to Canada as well as around the Hawaiian Islands, so I'll definitely update this review again after putting these suckers through their paces.
Back from a super cold trip to Vancouver, and a lovely cruise through the Hawaiian Islands, and I can safely say that these shoes truly are all that and a bag of BBQ chips. In Vancouver, with some long toe socks (I got some funky colored pairs from a local Japanese goods store here in Honolulu, not sure where else you'll be able to find them) my feet kept nice and toasty during a particularly cold autumn, which I am definitely not used to as an island boy. On the Hawaiian cruise, the solid soles of the shoes allowed me to easily grip the floor of the ship during particularly choppy seas, and shore excursions were a breeze, going from casual sauntering round' town to full-blown hikes up trails by Waimea Canyon on Kauai.
The shoes still don't stink. Occasional nose in sole motion will find a scent not unlike any normal shoe, and that's usually gone after a few hours of airing out.
Can't ask for more than that in a Vibram. I'll be getting another pair in black, if they can finally get blacks in sizes for men.
I haven't so much as looked at my other pairs of Vibrams. These shoes are so casual and all-purpose I can't imagine ever getting anything else that could top them.
These are my favorite skateboarding shoes (I use a Carver skateboard), these are my favorite hiking shoes, these are my favorite kung fu shoes, these are my favorite beach shoes... these are my favorite shoes, period.
Hell, they're even amazing slip-ons! Just got to run out the door real quick to grab something from the market? You don't even need to bend down to put these bad boys on; slip em' between your toes and shoot out the door.
As for the smell, there is definitely a whiff of used shoe smell nowadays (I've had them for just over 6-8 months now) but that's to be expected from ANY shoe, really. If I compare the smell from these shoes to my old Vibrams, it's basically night and day; or living room to men's locker room, for a better analogy.
I will never buy any Vibrams aside from another pair of CVT-Hemps. They haven't come out with them in black for men, although the khaki is new. Definitely gonna pick up a pair of those.
I got these right before going on a 4 day hiking trip. I was nervous about the lack of support as I had not tried minimalist shoes before. My first day with them I did a half day hike up and down a mountain. From the trail head it was 800 meters of elevation gain. My feet were sore by the end of the first day, but it wasn't painful it just felt like a workout. By morning the soreness was gone and I was eager to slip them back on. In addition to the hiking, on the last day I ran about 6km in these on and off trail. All told I was blown away at how comfortable they were.
The thing that impressed me the most is that these communicate with you, giving you a new sense of feeling and touch you will never find in a shoe. It is exactly like the difference between puffy mittens and thin gloves. This has practical implications. Almost immediately it changed my gait. Suddenly I was able to easily feel things, like if I was struck my heel too hard on a given step. The constant feedback makes it easy to develop a healthier stride, one that engages your foot muscles in a more varied fashion.
Now for the cons:
• These need to be washed constantly, and take many hours to dry. You might want 2 pairs.
• Typically my feet and socks never ever smell. But one day of wearing these is guaranteed to create an odor. Like others I wash these in the shower with me so they can get a daily freshening.
• Very small rocks and the like can easily sneak in the sides. You have to take them off to remove debris. I find myself doing this a number of times during long hikes, primarily after steep downhill portions or when going off trail.
• I tried both the "right" size and +1. I ended up returning the "right" size and going a size up. I was particularly grateful for this after using them for a while, as your foot will swells a little when hot. This swelling turned something that was slightly loose in some areas into a very snug fit.
• When walking on dirt your feet will get very dirty. It's a side effect of how breathable these are.
• Stepping in the tiniest bit of water will get your feet wet. In between the toes there is no sole, thus water only has to be ~half a centimeter deep to get in. Even one step in moist mud will fill the bottom with enough water to slosh a bit. The weight of your body creates a small depression in mud which immediately fills with water.

Si no son una imitación, no entiendo que no tengan unas medidas uniformes en todos los modelos de FF.
Grazie a queste scarpe ho capito cosa vuol dire avere posture e carichi sbagliati da anni e anni.
Non solo. Anche scarpe di marche sportive dal costo anche di 200 € , che tutti usiamo per il semplice passeggio, tendendo sempre a " schiacciare " le dita, ad usare le calze a scapito della traspirazione.
I nostri poveri piedi devono anche loro respirare.
Ammortizzare e quindi un continuo alzare il tallone spesso è un' arma a doppio taglio.
Non parliamo poi delle innumerevoli scarpe a suola piatta, di gran moda da anni. Non sono più o meno anche loro a impatto zero con il terreno ?
È che sono proprio piatte. Non come le Fivefingers che seguono la forma del piede.
Infatti poi occorre prendere le solette perché fanno male.
Non dico che bisogna sempre usare le Fivefingers ma ci sta usarle per normali uscite .
Nella bella stagione poi alla grande. Meglio di tante bizzarrie che si vedono tra scarpe minimal, ciabatte, infradito e sandali con solo qualche millimetro di suola, spesso di cuoio rigido.
In sostanza basta dedicarci un po' di tempo e imparare di nuovo la camminata naturale abbandonata da bambini.
Saggezza popolare : " quando fanno male i piedi fa male tutto ".
