User Review: Vibram Men's FiveFingers KSO Trek
Price Paid: $54.95
I purchased my Treks in the middle of January 2011. I bought the brown kangaroo leather Treks. My size is a 42. I started wearing them all the the time (well except at work - due to dress codes) just to break them in and see if my leg muscles would be effected (muscles never were sore or anything). I would come home after work and immediately change into the Treks. The more I wore them, the more I realized the high comfort level I had every time I was in them.
Wearing the Treks around town and everywhere else, I would receive funny looks, double takes, and an occasional laugh. I also would be stopped by a lot of people asking me how those "toe shoes" were. That's when I would tell them about all the good qualities, comfort level, and the price that I paid ($54.95 - no tax and free shipping).
I have tried the Treks out on asphalt, dirt, sand, rivers, dry and wet rocks, and about every other possible terrain. I must say that they perform well in all areas that normal shoes would not perform in. They grip very well and have performed exceptionally beyond my original doubts.
I have not noticed any odors or foot problems, thus far. I do not wear toe socks with them and really do not have a desire to do so. I think that the Treks can perform better without the socks. They clean up and dry fast.
The only negatives that I would comment about my Treks is that the thread on my left Trek had unraveled on the edging, but still functions well. I believe that the price of the shoe for $125.00 is a bit on the high side and would be better suited at the $60.00 mark.
I would like to try out the other varieties as well, and my family is interested in purchasing a pair for themselves as well.
I absolutely love these Treks of mine, I would highly recommend everyone to purchase a pair for whatever the activity or in-activity.
