I personally use them every single day from walking around my barracks room to PT in the mornings to nice weekend climbs up the mountains behind base. The FIRST thing i do when i get off work is put on my fivefingers. They are comfortable, durable, lightweight and overall the best purchase i have made to contribute to my feet. I could not be happier with this product and I have already converted at least three others

When I got these shoes I had to get another pair as the sizing on the website wasn't correct. Even a size up I find the shoes painful after wearing them for a while. But they feel AMAZING in the water. I really like how they corrected how I walked and they feel good when I initially put them on. After about 1.5-2 hours though my big toe nail throbs from the design of the shoe (and possibly a sizing issue). I don't know if anyone else had this problem but these are Short-term -wear shoes. Also, after the second time putting them on the weave tore slightly even though I was gentle and followed their "How to put them on" recommendation.I would probably get the Classics or Sprint next time.

Comments about Vibram FiveFingers KSO (Men's):

I was extremely hesitant in moving to vibrams. I spent a great deal of time attempting to find the cons of VFFs. With great apprehension i made the dive and haven't looked back. I would suggest easing into them if you don't wear minimalist shoes already or frequently go barefoot. I LOVE these shoes, they are lightweight and dry quickly.

    2nd pair in about 4 years; still have the orignal pair but they are starting to be shaby looking with a few holes in the top mesh. Very funcnal even with many hours of use. If they get wet no bad effects like rub points or anything else besides they feel cooler with the evaperation of the moisture.

      This is my second pair of KSOs, they take a beating pretty well. I tell people if youlike being barefooted then these are for you, some people I know just don't like being barefoot for one reason or another. I personally am either in these, flipflops, or barefoot pretty much year round (I live in IL so these are my winter shoes too...)

      Comments about Vibram FiveFingers KSO (Men's):

      These are honestly the best pair of shoes I've worn; it's tough to wear "Conventional" athletic shoes for work. I originally purchased them for running, and eventually just worked them in to my everyday life, much to the chagrin of friends and family. My first pair lasted three years before the wear on them was too great, and I needed a replacement set. From casual wear, yoga, and Tough Mudders, these hold up extremely well in any situation.

            Comments about Vibram FiveFingers KSO (Men's):

            My 13 yr old son requested these shoes for school. Going sockless was recommended but they rubbed his feet and irrirated them....will have to buy special socks since apparently just cutting off toe part of regular sock does not work. Running in them was uncomfortable as well. He has since ditched wearing them and now wears his skechers.

              I got my Vibram KSO shoes to use in my jogging routine. There was no breakin period just a few minutes to get use to the awkwad feeling from never wearing a five finger shoe before. It was difficult to get on at first but now I have no problem with that. Key is to get big toe in first. The shoes are great good traction and very light weight. It does start to feel as if you are darefoot and I have notice an improvement in my balance. I would gladly recommend them to my friends.

                  Very nice product but if ordering from Canada the border charges are quite high (23$).
                  Be careful not to order too small.
                  Socks were nice especially with the cold spring in Canada.
