    don't wear them in the gym. wear them at the park, preferably not after a long dry spell
    I speak from experience- these are really comfy in soft grass, but that's about it

    I wear them to gym, unless im playing Bball. Running with them is rough and I still havent gotten used to it, but its getting better.

    my pinky toe doesnt quite fit into its sleeve. i tried ironing the rubber to stretch it out a little, which helped, but it's still not comfortable. next im gonna try to merge the sleeve of the pinky toe and the toe next to it by sewing them together. i am confident this will work

    Yeah my pinky toe beens inward a good amount so I have to push it into the last pocket. I see what you mean though by making the pinky toe and the 4th toe into one pocket though...could be good but I don't want to fuck mine up.

    @PcH - why two pairs? What models?

    @running crew - I ran down the street in them last night and it felt so crazy. It makes you run correctly because if you run heel to toe then you're in for a world of pain. You just run on your mid/front foot and lightly run on the surface like humans were made to do.

    would be cool if one day they become socially acceptable for restaurants/bars.... and for manual laborers a kevlar toped version?

    It'll be a LONG time (if at all) that these become more socially acceptable. I'm thankful I can get away with them at my current job. Only times I can think of not wearing them would be riding my motorcycle or if I'm wearing a suit.

    I don't think Kevlar would help, especially since it breaks down when exposed to chlorine which is common in pools and cleaning products.

    prolly need steel toed shoes for construction. and even if they offered steel toed vibrams, i think that kind of defeats the purpose. plus there's always the chance you can get one toe hooked on something and break it.

    I think I'd laugh out loud if I saw someone wearing those. Cool and all just look so unbelievably stupid.

    Did you order on-line? No stores near me and I want to try these but am nervous about ordering a strange size without trying some on.
