Comments: I love these shoes. So much that I've bought 4 pair, just in case the model changes. I use them for trail running, road running, hiking, walking in beach sand, everything. I usually wear them without socks, and find the fit very comfortable. I've never had a blister or hot spot or sore toes after a long run. I was running on a cold day, and thought that might be chilly. I wore socks and had no problem. There is plenty of room in the toe box, and the loopy laces are easy to adjust and stay tied. The sole is vibram, and so doesn't slip on wet surfaces, which is key when trail racing or running. They did get a bit smelly, but cleaned up easily in the washer and air dried. They look pretty cool too :-)

Comments: I love these shoes and have 2 pair, for alternating days. They seem to have a forgiving fit, because my left foot is longer and I sometimes have trouble getting a good fit in running shoes. I have about 60 miles on the shoes, and they are very comfortable; I do not notice any issues with either foot for the fit. I wear w/o socks, but a thin sock would work also. Great shoe for running or race-walking.

Comments: I am an avid barefoot runner, typically in Vibram 5 fingers. I decided to give these a try as they have a Vibram's sole that is similar to the Vibram KSO Trek. I love these shoes! They are very similar to Vibrams, but do not give me blisters on my toes like the Vibrams. I have not wore my Vibrams since receiving these shoes. Very comfortable with or without socks! I was already accustomed to Vibram's, so if barefoot running is new to you -- you may need to slowly convert into these shoes. I will definitely buy another pair of these!
