I hike on the side of a mountain near my home in the Rockies. I hike in everything from loose dusty shale to loose rock to boulders. I have yet to step on anything that caused pain. I have always hiked in boots that gave me ankle support. What I didn't realize was how much traction I was loosing due to loss of pivotal movement in my ankles. I can walk painlessly on angles with these that I never could before. In all, I've found my good weather hiking shoes. They won't work in winter here where temps drop to the -30 to -40 degree range with winds up to 50 mph. :-( Vibram makes an insulated version with gore tex but they are $200 a pair!
Although these fit literally like a glove, which is a good thing for wearing them barefoot, I cannot get even the lightest five fingered (toed) sock into them. If I buy another pair I will likely order up a size so I can wear socks.
As the five stars indicate, I love these!
They do say you need to work into them and that is true, the above step just made it a faster process for me. I did order a pair of the Injinji lightweight socks which I can now also wear with these without issue. They have a great tread on them and I am able to run up very steep rock/dirt paths and hills without slip at all. Very satisfied with these.
Update: After a few uses they've definitely broken-in and feel great even after wearing them for hours.
