I have been wearing them for about a month now nearly all day every day. They're so comfortable and so unobtrusive that I've crawled into bed a few times with them on and didn't even think about it! I haven't had any issues at all about walking on various terrains. They provide exactly as much protection as you need to not get hurt or be bothered by walking on acorns, rocks, or whatever without taking away the feeling of being practically barefoot. I give them 4 stars though because I'm disappointed that the lycra touches the ground on all sides and after the month of wearing them a little rip has formed in the toe. I have done my share of walking on sidewalks, indoors, outdoors, and everywhere in between, but I was definitely hoping they'd last a little longer. I sew, so I'll be reinforcing the toe myself, but it'd be nice if they were more durable.
I hear ZemGear is coming out with a running shoe in which the sole will come up and around so the lycra does NOT touch the ground. I'm definitely in line for those! I've read other reviews of people complaining about the seams being uncomfortable. When I first tried them on, the heel seem was much narrower than my heel (I have wide feet all around) and I was concerned I'd have a similar experience, but I found that the more I wore them the softer the seems got. They haven't bothered me since that first day. I even wore these to Warrior Dash through mud, water, sand, and crazy obstacles and they held up exceptionally well. The small rip in the toe turned into a slightly larger one, but no other wear and tear at all! Everyone else had to throw away their shoes after the race and I just through mine in the wash! I wasn't bogged down my lots of mud in my shoes either!
Overall, I recommend these shoes for anyone wanting to live a "barefoot" lifestyle. I think these are perfect for your every day use and the options of styles and colors allow you to match your wardrobe. I've only had a couple people in the last month comment on them, so I wouldn't worry about too many people asking if you're just wearing socks *lol*. I'd like to try the ninja toe shoes next...in aqua! Thanks ZemGear! (hurry up with the running shoe would ya?!)
Unless you are planning to use these shoes leisure activities don't purchase.
If soles would be softer I would give this product a 5 stars rate.
They are made in China.
Important: some reviewers say that they are somehow big and advise to buy a smaller that usual size...don't be tricked! Buy your size.
