I have a pair of the KSO's and I love them so much. I wear them everywhere. It feels pretty much like walking barefoot. Never seen the trekking shoes before but I am thinking of looking into them.

I've been wearing a pair of Five Fingers (Sprint) for several months. It took a day to get used to something between my toes, but after adjusting, I don't even notice that any more.

I love wearing them, and they are good for disc golf on courses with natural tees. Perhaps they would even be good on rubber mats, but certainly not on concrete. I usually still wear my regular Gortex shoes for golf.

I do get weird looks from people sometimes, but it's pretty rare. More kids notice them than anyone else, and kids think they are great

Why do you say this? I think these are perfect on concrete pads. Virtually the same as any other vibram soled shoes.

The soles on the sprints, at least, are not the same aa other Vibram soles. They flex much more and grip the concrete. I spin my right foot during follow through and found that either I had to change my throwing style, or my ankle would hurt.

If you like the idea of Five Fingers but are afraid of the weirdness of them try a pair of Nike Free shoes. They sell them in running and trainers. The bottom is literally cut up, the idea is to work your foot muscles the same as the five fingers.

I wear them a lot. I've played DG in them a lot too, though I prefer hiking shoes or my old Addidas SS2Gs.

I started wearing mine because all the big wigs in the fitness industry wear them, to help strengthen your feet, ankles, knees, hips and to some extent, shoulders.

I just ran my first marathon in a pair of KSO's. Between my coworkers and myself, I'm the only one walking semi-normal today. Everyone else is home in bed. I recommend these to anyone who has knee, hip, or lower back pain. After the two week break in period, all of the aches are gone.

I'm definitely warming up to the idea of these, but only for the hot humid summers. I'd also have to take care of this stupid ingrown toenail dang thing had to come back after I got it taken care of. Anyone used them on more heavy wooded courses, with gravel in areas? Or also what about concrete tees?

I have a pair of the sandal keens and here in Iowa I get a lot of guff from other players , I've been wanting to try a pair of the five fingers on but they would probably cast me out for those.
