User Review: Vibram Men's FiveFingers KSO
Use: trailrunning, short dayhikes, riding bicycles, bouldering/climbing, water, mowing lawn
Break-in Period: a few wears
Price Paid: $80
The FiveFingers are a good shoe. I have worn them 20 times or so and they are ripping along the seems and have cuts through the soles from stepping on rock while running trails. When I run with them it hurts my achilles compared to running with no pain completely barefoot. Running with these shoes is not running barefoot.
They are good for hiking and trail running, and are really bad for rock climbing, equal or slightly worse traction even than climbing barefoot I would say, and nowhere near the performance of climbing shoes.
They are very comfortable though, and I do like them. The price is very steep for how easily they fall apart. Would've given them 5 stars if they cost 40 dollars or so.
