I use the Treksport Sandal for light hikes and any kind of everyday outdoor use in summer. Close to barefoot feeling with the right protection for the feet. If you are not used to this kind of shoes, it will take some time for yourself and your feet to adjust. It is worth doing so. After a knee injury (from running in "normal" running shoes) and the advise from the MDs to walk and run more barefoot, I find, after 2yrs of doing so, this is a great way to go. No knee or back problems ever since... amazing!

Take your time and measure exactly your feet in oder to get the right size...
I can recommend this sandals and it will not be the last pair of FiveFingers I will own!
At first I was disappointed because they were really snug. Is my toe supposed to touch the end or not?
I'm happy to say that now you don't have to go through the anguish I did over these shoes. I called a retailer after buying the first pair (which was a 41, I ended up replacing with a 42), and asked a employee some questions.
Here's the deal. Take everything you know about these shoes and throw it out the window (just keep the shoes when you do this or they'll charge you for them.... ;-) ). It's all about preference despite what descriptions say. Do you like your shoes snug, or a bit more comfortable. Unfortunately if you have strange toes and they aren't formal and they don't get shorter as you go down the line, you might want to get the next size up. These shoes are made to fit the average person who has your toes be normal (whatever that is!).
Please consider these things when you buy this:
Do I want some room for my foot to grow (if you expect it to grow at all)?
Do I want a little clearance so that my toes don't touch the edge?
(If you answered yes to any of those questions, use the sizing chart, and whatever it tells you to get, get the next size up.)
I gave it 4 stars because the strap that you tug to tighten the shoes, the little tab that holds the two ends together let go of one of the strings.... Seems cheaply made.... But they do include shoelaces as well..... so, I guess whatever floats your boat.
Also, warning.... They mean it when they say that you need to adjust to these. I wore them thinking I could break them in more quickly than the average person.... Well, apparently I'm so superman. Muscles hurt the next day that I didn't even know I had. What a great way to tone unused muscles. Work up to the mileage slowly! Bring an extra pair of shoes along with you in case you run out of gas.
Really good price, or I would've gone in store to get a pair, I think it's easier to size it and try on different styles to be honest.
Good luck, and enjoy.
These use the same sole as the Vibram FiveFingers TrekSport, which I've been running in, on hilly trails, for years.
Sadly, both this model and the original TrekSport seem to have been discontinued.
The style I bought is Light-gray / Gray / Black, not the Dark-gray / Black currently pictured on Amazon.
They're visually less intense than TrekSports or other FiveFingers models designed for running.
Only downside I see at the outset is that the construction of the uppers is a little rough around the edges.
The upper designs of Vibrams usually are pretty open to begin with, often consisting of mesh or some other lightweight and generally breathable fabric. As such, it would seem that a "sandal" design would be superfluous. Looking beyond this aspect, this shoe offers a combination that no other previous Trek-based model offers, breath-ability AND laces. Up until this point, you either got one or the other. It was either a mesh upper with strap closure, or a leather-clad lace up. With this model, you get ventilation with the open design and the secure and more comfortable fit from the laces.
Keen has a good idea with a closed-toe sandal. My problem has been that they always seemed to be too narrow on my foot. Adding to that, my pinky liked to occasionally go on excursions outside the strapping. Despite trying different sizes, I couldn't get what seemed to be a good anatomic fit. With the Vibrams, rather than herding your toes into a rounded cup, each gets its own place to reside. The result is that this sandal feels much more locked on to your foot.
Aside from the cut-outs for air flow, the fabric between the toes is a fine mesh design, allowing for good ventilation and drainage, but fine enough to keep most debris, even coarser sand out.
While the Trek sole offers plenty of grip, it leaves a little wanting for more flexibility for your toes. Sometimes instead of the toe pockets bending downwards, your toe simply curls up in the pocket instead. I sort of wish these were available with some of the more flexible sole designs that Vibram has.
If you don't mind the look, these are a great departure from the clunkier "adventure sandals" on the market. This sandal provides a lighter weight alternative with comparable performance and probably a better fit.
