I purchased mine online from REI. the way vibram tells you to measure is perfect and REI is totally legit about taking things back or exchanging things for you. I have declared them to be my official disc golf footwear, I wear them for almost every round that I play. I don't have the new Treks, but they look sweet! If you get them let me know how you like them!

I just bought some FiveFingers Treks from Backwoods in Ft Worth yesterday. They are going out for their maiden voyage today. I already have some serious doubts about how well they will work for disc golf. When I plant my right foot to throw RHBH and pivot, the toes kind of roll over and it feels like the leather part of the top of the big toe just about rubs on the ground...or at least rubs on the bottom of the next toe over. We shall see soon, but I'm thinking that these will be strictly for playing with on grass tee boxes and for non-dg outings.
They feel GREAT and are super light...just barely over 5 ounces each.

Nice! I have the Sprints which are a little lighter and only have a strap across the top of the foot and a lot less rubber/tread. I've really only had second thoughts about using them when I'm on really rocky courses here around Raleigh. Hope you enjoy the Treks, they look sweet.

Do you disc in your Sprints without any problems with them?

Yeah. I wear them almost every time I go out and play. This is my first winter owning them and I played the other morning in them...it was a little chilly around a few of the holes where there was some water standing, but I got used to it fast. I tend to have no problems on cement or natural tee boxes though, and like I was saying earlier, I have only have some issues on real rocky surfaces around some holes at a few of the courses in Raleigh. I could see that on cement tee boxes the Treks could maybe be a little weird getting used to.
