Mama's got a new pair of shoes

I was turned on to these very very recently, but I love the idea so I jumped on the bandwagon tonight.

I'll be wearing these around as much as I can and seeing how they work out. I already don't have any issues rolling my ankles or stumbling, I just enjoy toe-socks and being barefoot. I just got home with them a few minutes ago and I've been wearing them about 45 minutes so far and they're really comfortable. It's weird feeling them, but not the least bit uncomfortable.
I walked up the driveway and into the house, and feeling the bumps in the concrete and other things was so cool. I'm excited to go try them out running or hiking. The style I bought is one of the more all-around styles.
I'm just curious how well the tread will last. That's my only real question.
I'll be keeping ya'll updated.

Got my pair a few months ago and still like them - but if you are going to start running in them build up slow. They are a good thing for the feet, but your muscles have to adjust to a different stride and posture, so there will be some soreness!

Mine are the trail model, but I'm considering a second pair of the lightweight ones for house wear.

I'll definately break myself into them slowly as far as running goes. I'm in poor shape for running so it will be hard to overdo it too much. I'm thinking about driving up to stone mountain park and walking up the mountain in them once I'm used to them a bit more.

How's the tread life on them?

I think the Vibram FiveFingers look so funny but I bet they feel great. I'm curious to see how they work out for you.
