      Comments about Mens Vibram FiveFingers Sprint Running Shoe:

      I bought these because I started wearing my running Bikilas all the time and they stank. I wear these almost every day and they don't stink and my feet stay nice and dry in the Florida heat. Walking in these and running in my bikilas has strengthened the wimpy muscles in my feet and lower legs so I no longer get shin splints or have pains in my arches. No heel striking either. Like magic.

      I usually wear a men's 8 and I wear a 40 in these. They fit very tight at first, especially at the back top, but after wearing a few days they are perfect. In grey and blue they go great with most of my pants/shorts and don't look nearly as strange in person. The only people who seem to notice have been thinking about getting a pair and ask me if they're worth it. They are. If you get a proper fit you will love these shoes. If you don't love them they might be a bit too big or the rear straps might be a bit too tight (mine are quite loose).

        Comments about Mens Vibram FiveFingers Sprint Running Shoe:

        For over a year I have done alot of research of the Vibram Five Fingers. I finally broke down and bought a pair after going through false hopes of the Fila Skeletoe. Don't buy the knockoffs and dish out some extra cash for the real deal. Your feet will thank you. There is definitely a "transition" period. Wear the shoe for a couple hours at a time for the first week or so. But after a while they become a part of your foot. I never felt more at home and giggled like a child when walking through the woods or just in the grass. also running for games like ultimate frisbee made me feel like a champion as I had better control of my balance. All in all a fantastic shoe.

        I always wanted to try these, and I'm glad I did, but the result was disappointing.

        Very tough to put on. Not convenient to just throw on and run. I didn't feel comfortable running in these shoes - always felt vulnerable. But the worst part was how my feet felt after running in these shoes - always sore.

          Comments about Mens Vibram FiveFingers Sprint Running Shoe:

          I currently use the Vibram Sprints as my primary running shoe/trainer for the past 3+ years. I have used them mainly for running on pavement and roads but have also used them for activities such as yoga, crossfit and Insanity. I love these shoes as they have just enough padding for your soles during those very sunny days were you just cant go bare as I often try to do for anything less than 4 miles. I have run a full marathon in these as well as several fun runs and they have never failed me yet. I have tried other models such as KSO, Bikila and Seeya but prefer these due to the them being less restrictive as compared to the KSO and Bikila and prefer these compared to the Seeya due to the Seeya having pods on the soles that seem to detract from the barefoot feel due to the Pods on the soles as is the same case with the Bikila. I also own a pair of Sockwa G3s and would like to love them but they feel like running in socks as opposed to the Sprints that are more like running in a glove or second skin. I often felt like my feet were slipping in the G3s which could be compared to running in oversized shoes as opposed to the Sprints that would be considered in my case well fitted shoes. Another plus for the Sprints is that the Velcro closure allows me to fit it to my liking and also a place to attach my Polar foot pod were as the G3s do not. IMO if you could pair the Soles of the Sockwa with the upper and fit of the Sprints that would be the ultimate shoe. Until then I have already purchased 3 more pairs of these before they are gone and am hoping that Vibram changes their mind about discontinuing these or perhaps come out with a model that's comparable to what I consider to be the ultimate mix.

            Comments about Mens Vibram FiveFingers Sprint Running Shoe:

            I like these shoes. That being said, if you are just getting into barefoot shoes (as I was) I recommend you ease into them. I have run in them already, but start off with small distances (about 10% of your weekly runs)

            The shoes fit well, although the adjustable strap system is not perfect. But once you start walking in them you forget about that sort of stuff and focus on the incredible feedback you get from the road. Be weary of technical trails or any surface with lots of rocks or sharp objects. This sole is very thin and flexible, and won't protect your foot too well. Perhaps they are best enjoyed on asphalt or other hard, smooth surfaces.

            Comments about Mens Vibram FiveFingers Sprint Running Shoe:

            I've purchased 4 pairs of these. They're the only thing that fits my uber-extra-wide feet, tho I still have to go a size up. However, that's compensated for by the velcro adjustment that keeps the heel tight. So it's all good.

            I use these for walking, running, climbing public artwork, and shopping.

            If you walk/ run through deep enough mud, your shoes will get mighty uncomfortable. Little bits of rock will get inside and scratch your feet, and there's no socks (at least in mine) to cushion the annoyance.

              Have wore out 5-6 pairs. Own 4 new. Seems are not produced any more.

              Have ran full marathons in it. Never use traditional running shoes. Since using sprint five fingers have cured from plantar fasciitis and tendinitis.

              May not work for others. But for me it was the cure. I am 60 and run/walk 80-100 miles a month.
