About this deal

After my first 5-minute run, I knew that I loved them. For the first time, I could feel the ground and texture beneath my feet, completely transforming and elevating the sensation of running. After some time in the Vibram FiveFingers, I think I’ve graduated from rookie status. Once they stay in the rotation, I’ll be well on my way to becoming a barefoot shoe master!

Until college, we cross-trained with running etc. they required shoes…and that is when my knee started to cause me issues. I’ve used Vibrams off and on over the years. My 1st pair was a water show which I still have and use. I used it minimally as a normal shoe. However maybe its the adult in me but I don’t like the idea of wearing a shoe with velcro straps as an adult. Water shoes is fine.

Our Verdict

Yes I called you two kids. Only because at 67 I may be old enough to be your grandpa. Really liked your review. It’s filled with good info on the use of these shoes. There are a lot of shoes that we don’t highly recommend, either for performance, fit, or durability reasons. Additionally, the shoes that we do highly recommend, are not ideal for certain activities.

Ryan trained for his first marathon in a pair of V-Trek Vibram FiveFingers. While training in mountainous Medellín, Colombia, he needed more rubber to cushion his heels. By the end of training, the soles were good but he was patching holes in the toes with duct tape. Not convinced about barefoot running shoes? Especially the funny-looking ones with toes? I’m not surprised. The whole theory behind barefoot running is that Mother Nature knew what she was doing. Your feet are incredible works of art. Each one of your stompers has 26 bones, 30 joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Hands-On Review

In our opinion, the answer is not the V-Run. That shoe didn’t fit either of us very well, and because of that Ryan’s shoes started delaminating after a few runs. If the V-Runs fit you perfectly, great! I’ve seen several groups of barefoot runners at marathons — even during the Shanghai Marathon which is particularly filthy. But aside from the dirt and potential glass, it has always fascinated me. Unmistakably, it’s possible even in today’s modern world.
