Vibram Soles

rated 1 of 5 stars Vibram soles slip on wet surfaces and come away from the shoe in less than a year to allow water into the shoe/boot... Goretex or not. My first experience with the Vibram sole was when I bought Merrell hiking shoes. The shoes felt very comfortable and I was happy until I slipped over on damp sandstone rocks while hiking. Not only are they dangerous in the wet but my 100% waterproof shoes became water logged as the soles separated from the shoes after about 6 months of normal wear. I bought another… Full review

Vibram Soles

rated 5 of 5 stars #1276 Sierra soles, nitrile compound, made in MA, USA. I put these on my everyday walking shoes. Traction is good in snow and wet surfaces. Very durable soles. Been using it for a year or so in my everyday shoes. Have not gone hiking in the mountains with these. I have used it over snow, ice, wet pavements. Durability and traction is excellent. Of course, concerning ice, no soles are effective unless you have metal spikes or chains incorporated in it to break the ice. Full review

FiveFingers KSO

rated 4 of 5 stars I have been wearing my Vibrams for four years. I can hike a mile upriver on a wooded trail then float down through class 1/2 rapids.

I bought this product four years ago and still wear them whenever I go kayaking or for a float down the river at our house, basically any water sport where you don't want your feet… Full review

Vibram Soles

rated 5 of 5 stars Don't get a shoes without these! These are by far the best soles you can buy. I would never not have them on my hiking shoe. I have never had a blister with them or anything. They will leave your foot feeling great after a long day of hiking!  Full review

FiveFingers TrekSport

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I purchased these as a bit of an impulse. I wanted something to protect my feet at a slippery boat launch, and as I live in a small town these ended up being the only option in the sport-sandal category. I probably wouldn't have considered these otherwise, as I always thought they were a bit of a gimmick. I was wrong.  The first thing about these is they're a bit hard to get on initially. Trying to get each toe to go into the right part of the shoe was trying (nearly impossible for my wife). After… Full review
