With all that being said, these shoes have been super comfortable. As soon as I put them on I was in love and coming from a woman that loathes shoe shopping that means A LOT! I have been doing much of my exercising at home and the gym and these have been perfect. Bought them in a men's 12 and was worried because some reviews said they ran small and I live overseas so I couldn't make it to the store to purchase them. The color and style of the shoes did not make my feet look more mannish then they already do which is a big plus for me. The material of the shoes are stretchy so that will address the occasional swelling I have and they are still supportive enough for me to continue exercising in. I haven't worked my way up to running in them yet but I will definitely post my thoughts on that when I get there. I don't review products often nor did I receive a discount in exchange for a review. I honestly love these shoes and will be buying more in the future for my husband and I. Also, shipping was super fast!
I do wish they came in pink and black for woman
with not so average feet though. Other than that, these are awesome! I would highly recommend these for a comfortable workout!
Although they have a bit more padding in the sole I can still get a great "feel" for the earth I am covering on a run or hike in the mountains. They grip well on all the terrains I have used them in. I also wear these for variation when I do my Indian Clubs, Kettlebells, and Qigong Staff training.
If you are unfamiliar with Vibram 5 Fingers let me state clearly that they should fit like a second skin or a pair of socks. Also they do stretch out a bit within the first few days of wear. I wear a 9.5 shoe size and in the 5 Fingers I wear the euro size 42. My big toe comes right up to the end. Personally I don't want any "extra" space; that is why I wear minimalist shoes.
For those of you new to these styles of shoes the 5 Fingers have separate slots for each toe. The Body Glove 3T Gladiators have only 3 slots. One for the big toe, one for the next toe, and then one for the last 3 toes. Personally I prefer the 3 Toe design since there is less material between my toes. But the Vibram are still a great shoe.
One final consideration: If you are new to this type of shoe I strongly suggest you consider learning how to run "barefoot style" and take your time adjusting. Give your muscles and sinews time to adjust to "feeling" more of the earth. I wear the Vibram, Body Glove and Xero shoes daily. And not just for physical training, but also for around town and I love them all for driving as well. Once you get used to them and your feet and legs become adjusted to the new requirements I think you will be pleased.
I really love walking in Vibrams! My main issue - and this is what made me get a cheaper, more traditional walking/running shoe for walking: after only a couple of weeks of walking about one hour a day most days of the week, the soles are REALLY wearing thin already, mostly at the balls of my feet. I wore holes in my last pair too but with this pair the wear has accelerated a LOT as I have increased my walking time.
This is just such a shame and a waste for a very expensive shoe as the rest of the shoe is totally fine! I just can't justify using these outside any more, so I use them on the treadmill and I use a more traditional shoe for outside walking. Even still, I can tell they are still wearing holes pretty quickly with a few hours of treadmill walking per week.
I tried using Shoe Goo and bicycle tube patches to fix the holes but much to my disappointment, that really didn't work well. To be fair, I am about 330 pounds and I walk on concrete streets and sidewalks several hours a week. These shoes might not be designed for such heavy wear and tear even though this model has an extra thick gray layer of plastic or rubber over the softer black rubber.
So if you're heavier and/or if you run or walk a lot on rough surfaces, you might be very disappointed with how quickly the soles of these shoes will wear all the way through in certain spots.
If these shoes were in the $50-75 range, I might not have much of a problem with having to buy a new pair every 3-4 months (still, what a huge waste of money and resources) but they were about double that when I bought them. As much as I love walking in Vibrams, these will likely be my last pair unless the prices comes way down on these and they figure out a way to make the soles more durable (or maybe if I can figure out a good way to repair these).

Hopefully, Vibram will not mess with the design or the manufacturing of this shoe.Read more
