Yay!  I love my VFFs!  Have you tried them before?  Did you try them on?  What do you plan to use these ones for?  I used to sell these (at REI), so I know a bit about them.

I hated those things! My brother absolutely loves them though. I literally was just thinking about them before I opened this. What a kawinkeedink! I could never get my toes in without 20 minutes of struggling. Too bad I washed the receipt -_-. I'm glad you're excited though and getting something you want :) I'm sure it is a big motivator :)

I have tried them on before! It was at one of those foot stores at a mall here but I wasn't sold because I felt like they fit weird. So I am going to an REI tomorrow so I can get properly fitted! I am so stoked. I mostly do cardio at the gym so that's probably what ill use them for!

Any info you have please share!!

From what I've heard/read they are good running shoes.

It is! Tomorrow starts my second week at the gym! So I am pretty motivated to get them! I even told my SO that I needed to go to the gym before I got my shoes so I could stay on routine. :)

I am super excited. Are the reviews right? Does it take a bit for your feet to adjust?

If you still can't get a feel for the toe separation try on a pair of Merrell shoes, they are sill barefoot (and use a Vibram sole for their barefoot style shoes) without toe separation. My husband loved his VFF's but got a pair of Merrell's when he needed a new pair and loves them! I'll be trying on some tomorrow.

If you've never worn a barefoot style shoes it does take some time, a couple weeks or so...but now I do everything in them. I run in them, shop in them, everything. I will never go back to a regular running shoe.
