Any other runners out there who have fallen in love with Vibrams?
paradox saidI bought a pair, and I just don't find them comfortable. And, after a week of wearing them, they stink something fierce... far worse than any regular athletic shoe I've ever worn. I wash my Asics about once a year to brighten them up a bit. The Vibrams have to be washed once a week; that's way too high maintenance for me.
tcmdoc saidI love mine. They were my segue into barefoot running. I still use them if I'm trying out a new trail or haven't gone barefoot in a while (like now, since winter's ended) though. Watch out for the stones - I feel like they hurt more w/the five-fingers on than off.
*And I haven't had any trouble with mine smelling either - I just throw them in the wash machine if they get too dusty.
bpguru saidI thought this said five finger vibrators!!! LOL, I was like "this is going to be intresting.
EastCoastNAZ saidI love mine. Got the KSO's and have only had mild discomfort. Love using them to cross train, speed rope, etc. Mine don't stink either since I spray with deodorizer/anti--bacterial stuff. I want to get the Komodosport ones that just came out.
bhp91126 saidI stopped using mine for running and am back to cushioned shoes. I'm either running on a tread-mill or asphalt and I think vibrams are better on nature-trails etc. My knees started to hurt running in them and the Nike-Freestyles I have.
