They remind me of those hippy socks with the toes like that shoe has, havent seen those since i saw a pair on this hippy chick I went to highschool with, they look pretty sweet but like TECHNOHIC said the material between your toes would take some getting used to, i dont even like the way rings feel on my fingers. How much are they anyway becouse that makes a big difference too?

I'm also curious what models you already 5 finger owners have. I was thinking of either getting the KSO or KSO Trek model if I do get them.

I have some KSO's, I would have tried the trek's but they weren't out when I bought them. KSO's work great for trail running/road running. Get some Injini socks with them as well and they are awesome.

I've been really intrigued by these for a while now. I think they look awesome but I could see where you'd be getting the ol stink eye wearing them. I really want them for running more than DG.

It's weird I kind of looked through this thread and it's like all the reviews and information I've seen everywhere else. If you haven't tried them you're extremely skeptical (or downright indignant that they'd suck) but for people that actually own them I've found very few complaints. And most of those are from people that liked them but wished they'd been sized correctly.

For $90 they better be durable, but I suspect with all those irregular curves they're not. How do the soles wear?

Quite well actually (like any vibram sole). I am having an issue with one of the seams coming loose at the big toe on my plant foot where the fabric meets the vibram sole (no doubt disc golf related). I plan on taking them back to the place I bought them to see if they'll replace them or recommend somewhere I can have it re-stitched.

I would try and contact vibram about it. They may send you another pair if the store doesn't. I have heard good things about their customer service.

I have been running on rocky trails, concrete, asphalt etc the soles look scuffed up, but that's about it. I haven't had any tears or anything yet, but I could see how the plant foot in disc golf could be rough on them. I tore up the sole on my pair of hiking boots playing in them, very noticibly more worn than the left foot.
