Has anyone tried Vibram Five Fingers

or Fila's Skele-toes?

I would like opinions before purchasing.

TIA

    I own a pair of five fingers, and I love them! Be advised, the "not barefoot barefoot" thing is not for everyone. I wear them when I want something I can really move in, but usually not when I am going to be standing for long periods of time or walking a lot. The ones I have do not have a lot of support, but they make some models with varying degrees. Something else to think about is foot shape. My husband cannot wear these things because he has "Greek statue" toes... You know, where your first small toe is longer than your big toe? Classic, but not for five fingers... All the soles are that slightly graduated diminishing length foot shape, so if yours are too different, they may not be for you.
    All that said, I love mine, and wear themever I can!

    Thank you, JC.

    Do you walk or run in them or use the elliptical machines at the gym?

    Hm... I'm not much of a runner, but I walk in them, mostly. They would be awesome on the elliptical, I think. They are also fun for hiking... Oddly, you can really feel the surface of the ground through them, and it is really fun to try to find unusual thing to walk on. If you can, you might try to find a retailer and walk about in them for a while.
