I have two pair and wear them whenever I feel comfortable looking a little odd.

I tweaked my knee almost two years ago jumping off a retaining wall, and still have some pain and lack of strength on that leg. I have found that the Vibrams allow me to control my balance and this greatly reduces the minor discomfort this injury causes, especially the next day.

I love to play golf and always wear them when playing. The feedback from your soles is awsome for a sport where your feet are planted and you twist while having a weight transfer during the activity. Prior to getting the Vibrams, the day after would always be much more uncomfortable, and frequently I would re-injure my knee, requiring up to a week to get back to stable. Now, I seldom notice any discomfort while playing, and have not had any relapses from swinging a club.

After about 10 days of wear I just throw them in the washing machine along with my other wash. I air dry them, and they don't look any different than when they were new.

I bought a pair of the VFF Treksports and i love them, after i got used to them.. lol. i learned alot, which the other guys covered, by buying these shoes and over doing it. You can't just buy them and wear them for hours on end, you need to ease into the transistion. After wearing my five fingers though, my knees don't hurt like they used to, i've gained more movement out of my ankle that i had broken years ago, and my feet hardly ever hurt even from work all and then working out. I'm either wearing my five fingers or my Merrels which are my other favorite shoe for when i can't wear my VFF!

Exactly the same for me, I broke my ankle then refractured it, my ankles and feet have never felt better. I haven't had any problems with the shoes at all except for the broken strap this morning. I got mine on sale for 60 dollars. I took them back to the store today to see if I could switch them out and the guy sent them in since there were only a few pairs this store had. They had a pair in black which I'm looking forward to getting a black pair but unfortunately I would have had to pay extra to get them.

So hopefully the company has some they will send to me and make it right, I honestly don't want a refund, I want my shoes! Tonight I'm going to a concert and wish I had that ankle support Vibrams gave me.

I meant the strap helps keeps the shoe nice and tight around my ankle.
