Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $85

Summary

A running oriented Five Finger. These shoes are meant for pavement, tracks, sidewalks, etc.

Pros

  • good ground feel
  • flexible sole despite thickness
  • sock liner

Cons

  • foam under the foot arch
  • more support

If any other pair of VFF fits your feet these will as well. Very comfy out of the box, the sock liner feels nice and soft.

I feel that there is more support, which for a minimalist shoe is a bad thing. These have better construction than the previous review claimed (in my opinion). These are by no means a trail shoe, these are designed for pavement and tracks, not trails, sticks and woods.
