These are a nice (less expensive) alternative to the Vibram Five Fingers (VFF's). I own both and personally prefer the Fila's, due mainly to the fit (pinky and it's bigger brother share a pocket) and slightly thicker sole. They are much easier for me to slip on than the VFF's and, for whatever reason, fit my feat absolutely perfectly. I usually wear a men's 8.5 and after trying on the 9 and 8 sizes I went with the smaller 8. Honestly it's like they were custom made to fit my feet. I bummed around the house in them for a few days and then threw caution to the wind and wore them on a 5.7 mile hike in the Pisgah National Forest. The hike had some relatively steep elevation gains and then some mud/wet areas as well. I figured I would regret wearing the fila's on such an ambitious first outing but they felt great! I didn't feel the slightest discomfort while hiking and didn't mind walking through the wet areas as I was pretty much wearing water-shoes anyway. The only downside was...
I bought a pair of these before a hike up Squaw Peak in Arizona, elevation gain = 1,190 feet in 1.2 miles. And I am happy with my purchase. I began looking at shoes after my first Spartan Race. I work in boots and wearing my sneakers in the race (I walked it) left my feet sore. Sore like muscles inside kinda sore. A little reading and I found most people moved to this type of shoe because of shin splints due to landing on there heel during a stride. This type of shoe encourages you to land on the balls of your foot in a more natural way with far less impact. Sounded like a good idea as I have a rod in my leg that acts the same way. NOT tolerant of impact! After this hike my feet were sore in the same type of way to a lesser degree and coming down that steep hike my big toes work sore on the outside. I suspect that will go away with a little time. Also that hike is covered in sharp rocks of every size. While you could feel the rocks through the shoes there were very few that...
Right big toe seam torn after only 3 days of wear. Returning item to DSW, and hope to find another of the same brand/size/style. I otherwise love these, and wore them every chance I could.
