I decided to try on the Sprint version. They are really strange to put on at first, but I got the hang of it, and they fit me, despite my abnormally long toes!

I have been trying to find just the right way to describe the Vibram FiveFingers Sprint shoes. So far the most descriptive analogy I came up with is “lingerie for your feet.” That is to say, they are like being bare…but better!

I have not had any issues or pains wearing these shoes, even when I have increased my mileage, walking 3 to 4 miles in the shoes. The only time I have had any discomfort in the shoes was when I put them on right after work one day. My feet were already sweaty and swollen from my dress shoes and it was very humid out. I walked about 2 miles and my feet began to get a few “hot spots.” I will attribute this to the state of my feet and the weather that day, rather than the shoes.
