Comments about VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS Women's TrekSport, Black:

Wore these shoes for the first time for a 10mi trailwalk (some backcountry trails with sticks, stones, boulders, as well as gravel and sand road). They felt really comfortable from the moment I put them on and did not take any getting used to. I really enjoyed how light they felt on my feet, and felt I had more traction on rocks and inclines than in regular hiking boots. One big downside was that they are not at all water resistant. If the ground is even a little wet, the moisture gets absorbed by the shoe, which feels unpleasant. I don't mean stepping into puddles, but just walking on wet surfaces will get your feet wet. For this reason I would not recommend wearing socks with these, they might not dry as quickly and would leave you with wet feet. I would also recommend following the guidelines for slowly phasing these in - after wearing the shoes all day (10 miles/8hrs), my feet felt sore and I could only wear flip flops the next day - regular shoes and the vibrams were both painful. 5-6miles / 3-4hrs would seem reasonable for wearing them for the first time.

    My first day wearing them I ran on the treadmill and my run felt faster and my legs felt lighter. As well, they feel like slippers. I may not purchase another pair of sneakers. I love them.

      I absolutely love my vibrams 5 finger toe shoes. I wear them for everyday wear, playing with the kids, and running. I also plan on hiking in them. What I really enjoy most is, after a day of walking, running, or playing in these shoes, my feet do not ache when I take my shoes off!! The best feeling in the wor
      ld. I love them!

      Comments about VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS Women's TrekSport, Black:

      I happened to be made for these shoes. I used to run barefooted, I stopped for various reasons, however, Vibrams's have helped me run on the sand with a barefooted feeling without being barefoot and exposed to shells, glass or whatever. Thanks for the refreshed memory of the freedom of a barefoot run without the fears. Thanks...Karen

        Comments about VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS Women's TrekSport, Black:

        I was excited when i purchased the shoe, then the day before I kinda felt like i spent too much money on some shoes that I would want anymore. [...] When I got them, which was today, I got excited again and was like i think they are going to be small but then i put them on and had to kind of wiggle my toes to get them in the individual toe gloves, lol, but once they i got both shoes on they felt so good. I wanted to wear them today outside but i didnt want to mess them up in the snow, ice, and puddles of water. I wear an 8 and 8.5 at rare times and i got a size 40, fits perfectly and they are pretty stylish to me even though im a nike and jordan sneaker wearer. I just had to leave my review for these "bare feet shoes" because i love them that much. I havent had them for long but i think it was worth the money, im not even mad i paid as much as i paid for them. Highly recommended to anyone, even if your second toe is longer than your big toe, but not too long. ;)

          These shoes require a little patience, as it takes a few times to get used to putting them on, but they are the best hiking shoes I've ever owned. After only two weeks, they've almost completely undone the damage done by Sketcher's Shape-ups (which are disasters!).

          I got a huge blister just above my arch the first time I wore them due to the rubbing at the seam, but that part of the shoe loosened/softened up and I haven't had a problem since.

            Took these on a vacation to the Virgin Islands that was filled with hiking and swimming. They outperformed my expectations on the trails (great grip and not too painful on my soles when walking over pointy rocks). They also were easy to wear while swimming and wading.
