Excellent for me, confortable and I can get use to running in them, they look good and feel good! For indoor use the are great and when out doors they are again great, they do what they say on the tin!

You have to be serious about wanting to change your running style though; they are goodto walk around in but take a long time to change your running technique.

Very comfortable and makes it easy for me to run with good form. I've only done very short 1-3k runs in them so far to get used to them after running in a 4mm drop. I can feel my calf muscles more than normal but it's not painful and I think within a week or so I'll be fully used to them in that regard. In the future I plan on doing some runs in my 4mm drop shoes and some in these and see how it all goes. I love running in them - it reminds me of when I was a kid and running fast on sand or grass, I just feel lighter and faster, lovely!

The seller was good and got them to me pretty quickly in good packaging and new condition.

You have to try them! 3 Mar. 2012
By SanDiegoJoey - Published on Amazon.com
Short story: Yes, Vibram's are awesome, they have given me a new running life, and if you've been plagued with running injuries I'd suggest trying them.

Long story: I'm 47 years old and have been a "gym rat" since high school. About ten years ago a coworker told me about a local "Mud Run" and I thought it sounded good. Knowing I' was creeping up on the 40 year old mark and knew it would be a good time to start mixing in some cardio, so I signed up.

I went to Road Runner Sports shoe store, did the treadmill foot examination thing, and left with a pair of "Stability" shoes. I started slow and built my running up to ten miles a week by the 8th week and it was at this point my ITB started giving me problems.

Being a gym rat and somewhat of an athlete who understands the body and injury I began a long process of trying to run without pain. I did a lot of research on running websites, at running stores, and read books like Chi Running by Danny Dreyer. In the following years I tried to perfect Chi Running and tried every ITB stretch routine, roller pads, ice + Ibuprofen, countless shoes, and even took 4 months off of running. And although I was able to improve my pain free running distance, I still could not run 5 miles without experiencing a lot of ITB knee pain, so much that I couldn't run more than 6 or 7 miles on a good day, and my top pace was around 8:30 min/mile.

About two years ago I read a blog from a runner who said barefoot running eliminated his ITB issues by forcing him to run with a natural gait, stride, pace, etc. I figure I had nothing to lose, I've spent a fortune on shoes and a lot of time running, stretching, rolling, and eating Ibuprofen, so I bought my first pair of Vibram shoes, the Komodo sport in 2009.

Again, I'm a gym guy, so I know the risk of jumping into physical activities and doing too much too soon. I walked in them and wore them to the gym for about a month before attempting to run in them, and even then I started running on the treadmill first. I ran on the treadmill for about another month before my first road run. My first run was two miles and I monitored my body, specifically my feet, the whole way. It felt great!! I kept my runs short for the next four weeks, never running more than 2 miles, but increasing my pace (I use a Garmin GPS watch) and eventually got my two mile run down to 14:18, by far the fastest I've ever run.

I now own three pairs of Vibram shoes, the KomodoSport, the TrekSport, and the new SeeYa. I've only wore the SeeYa once, so I can't give a review yet, but I can say this in general, I have been running without ITB problems ever since. I live near Mission Trails regional park in San Diego so I've added trail running to spice things up. I'm currently training for my first half marathon this June, the Rock n' Roll in San Diego, and will be running the Camp Pendleton Mud run the week after that, all in my Vibram shoes.

BUT, and this is an important note, I've had one minor foot injury from stepping on an uneven road surface that kept me from running and was limping around for a few weeks, it hurt like hell! I'm also just recovering from a moderate calf strain that sidelined me for 5 weeks (probably was over doing it). Here's the deal folks, our feet have been in the equivalent of a cast for our most of our life. Our foot tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones have not been used much and will take a while the strengthen, but the good news is they will strengthen and adapt if you're patient.

For me "barefoot" running changed virtually everything in my running economy. I believe I achieved "Chi Running" naturally because when I run in Vibram's I don't have the option of a heel strike, long strides, and I don't have the unnatural heel to toe drop of running shoes. I don't have to think about most of bad running issues because my natural instinct takes over the moment my feet sense the terrain. It's like being a kid again, running barefoot makes me feel like I'm playing again. My new goal is to improve my running economy even more by finding a way to lessen the strain on my calf muscles. Vibram's have definitely increased the use of my calf muscles, very sore, and getting more muscular, so be ready for that change too, a lot more calf stretches in your stretch routine will go a long way.

INTERESTING---FIT IS KEY 19 Oct. 2014
By GYPSY THE STEGOSAURUS - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: BlackSize: 10 UK Verified Purchase
This is my second pair of these kinds of shoes. My other pair was by the other company who makes them. (there are 2 that I know of). I originally bought them because my big to rubs on my second toe and you think "so" but ----its very --extremely uncomfortable. I know it makes no sense, but trust me, it does. These solve that problem. They are awesome. The most important thing with these shoes is the FIT. THe fit has to be tight, but not too tight. You must be almost sock tight, and the toes must go in the toe "places" or you will hate these. So first things first, make sure all 5 toes get where they are supposed to go. Then you should have the heel not tight but no slipping. The heel cup is very similar to traditional running shoes, and its important that you get your foot seated in it securely. These shoes are designed to wear with no socks, but usually I wear the toe socks, but thats me.

LIKES:
1- solve problems of toes rubbing or being jammed up as with regular shoes (in some cases)
2- Very light, very thin
3- good aeration
4- Outstanding in water. I wore mine fishing in a stream and walked in the water like nothing. Perfect.
5- Very comfortable--once you get the size right.

DISLIKES:
1- Too thin on bottom, --cannot wear running anywhere because the sole is too thin--stepping on rocks etc can be uncomfortable
2- must wear toe socks if you wear socks--expensive
3- hard to get on properly (but gets easier when used to them)
4 top half is mesh or fabric, no protection when walking in woods, thick brush, or in a river etc.

The dislikes are a personal thing. Some might say "they are not made to wear in thick brush or in rivers", but they are shoes. I wear my shoes wherever and if I have to pick and choose where to wear them, then I will get different shoes. Same issue with the soles. If you run, you better do so on a track. WHen you come down hard on a 1/2" rock, you will understand what I am talking about. The sole is very thin, there is no "last" (the part that makes shoes stiff and gives shape and size--the "mold" so to speak). These are basically a foot bottom molded into rubber (or whatever they use) with a nylon covering over the top to hold the foot. As I mentioned about fitting-- The heel is the only place that is a traditional on these shoes, in that there is a heel cup.

They can be adjusted a little bit---this shoe has a velcro strap, my others have elastic laces. I prefer the laces in this kind of shoe, the velcro doesnt seem to provide the same kinds of fitting options as laces--but again, shoes are very personal, and I think with these I would --

1- Get the exact size of your foot----measured or traced -not with a brannock shoe size device
2- Get the shoe closest to that measurement or tracing.
3- Try them on, make sure your toes are in each place, and the heel is secure--no slipping when walking but no blisters either.
4- use them for a few weeks. You need to get used to them, and you need to practice putting them on/taking them off--

These are great and I love mine, but they do require a lot of TLC. Good luck, thanks for reading. i hope this helps you.

First Pair 17 July 2011
By Jake Blaser - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: BlackSize: 9 UK Verified Purchase
Excellent shoes. Very comfortable for walking and everyday activities. These shoes should come with a warning sign that everyone you run into will ask a ton of questions and you will become their spokesperson. Luckily for Vibram, this is an outstanding product.

Runners be Warned: Be very very careful transitioning into this shoe if you aren't accustomed to running barefoot. Your calves will get quite sore from regular use and the change of biomechanics. Everyone will need to go at a different pace. Error on the cautious side or you may get injured.

Favorite shoes ever! 16 Sept. 2011
By knowoneinparticular - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: BlackSize: 10.5 UK Verified Purchase
I began running in the KSOs about a year ago and loved them, but I wanted to try something with a little more tread. I bought these based on the rave reviews and I can only agree with the other users who loved them. They are so comfortable that I want to wear them all the time! I bought them mainly for gym and running, but I'm constantly looking for other places where I can get away with wearing them! I just wore them to a Disney park over the weekend, 8 hours of walking on the concrete and waiting in lines and my feet, knees and back - normally achy by the end of a day like that - felt great!

Great shoes, great design, thanks Vibram!

great product!! 24 July 2011
By aggrivator - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: BlackSize: 7 UK Verified Purchase
These are great!! i am wearing these in iraq in all the gravel out here, they are more comfortable than my super thick flip flops i wear to the showers!! i can jump up and down in them in all this rock covered ground without feeling a thing underneath me!! no heat transfers through, my feet stay nice and cool, plus i usually dont wear shoes without socks, but i love going barefoot in these! i bought the socks, but they werent comfortable, plus i have fat feet so they are too tight to wear socks with them anyways. round up to the next 1/8 - 1/4 inch when measuring you feet if u have a wide foot, i ordered a size small i think, but they are getting more comfortable each day!!
