This was the first Vibram model I ever bought and was a perfect choice for my first foray into minimalist running shoes. I was lucky enough to have little or no need to adapt my running style and soon got used to the feel of the ground beneath my feet. I run five times a week, doing relatively high mileage and training for the Belfast marathon, on 1st May. They are definitely up to the job.

I now have three pairs and I was a little surprised that the feel of the ground is a little different from pair to pair. Also, the second pair has a different fit. Although also a size 39, they are considerably tighter and the toes are shorter. (The peach and grey coloured pair in the photo below) Because of that, I use them only on runs of 5k or less. They have the least mileage on them at 90km. The black ones are up to 350km and the pink ones are uo to 220km. I can wear socks on colder days with the other pairs, but not so that peach/grey pair.

I do wish that there were more stockists available where I could try the different models on, in store. I'd love to be able to get a feel for the sole before buying. Regardless of that though, I love all my Five Fingers and will definitely be getting more.

These are longer but thinner than my other Vibrams and so I can't get a good fit, especially with socks. Based on the reviews, and the advice of the Vibram website that these shoes run large, I ordered one size down from my usual Vibrams (for comparison, I am a size 8 womens and I have a size 39 in the KSO and trail shoes from last year. I ordered a size 38 in these). However, when I tried to pull them on barefoot, they were difficult as they are tight around the foot. The lacing digs into the arch a little, even though I have low arches, as the laces are too short to loosen enough. Once on, the length felt okay without socks but, once I put socks on as I prefer, they are so short that they are cutting into my heel. I thus assumed the sizing advice wasn't meant for those who want to wear socks and thus ordered one size up--my usual Vibram size. These pulled on much more easily, without having to spend a lot of time getting the laces as loose as possible first. However, the toes are so long that I feel like my toes are only half inside them. Even with socks, my little toe isn't even in the space for it and, if I curl my toes, my big toe pulls out of the space for it too. It feels sloppy, not "barefoot". With socks, the shoe still feels uncomfortably tight around the foot. So, it's not that these "run large"--they run long and so narrow that socks aren't comfortable.

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers V-RUN:

    I ordered both 39 (EU)/ 8-8.5 (US) and 40(EU)/8.5-9. First was to narrow even without socks, second was too large more than 50% of toe pockets seemed to be empty.

    I'm new to toe shoes, I have the trek Ascent insulated (40(EU)/8.5-9(US)) and Alitz Loop (39(EU)/7(US)). Both fit well, and I love them. However, I was looking for a nice running shoe, to get back into running as an oversized woman. But these didn't fit at all, can't think of being able to run with these. :(

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers V-RUN:

    Love these Vibrams best of all, I have them in every color, they feel like butter when I put them on, so comfortable, I have many of the different styles and enjoy them but these in my opinion are in a class of their own. Size wise these are more true to size, most Vibrams the five fingers I have to get the next size up, but not these. I am a size 7 and in these I buy a 37 which is what they recommend, I originally bought the 38 and they were way to big. When they get wet they do make your feel smell so I use sneaker balls and this works to eliminate the odor. I had an issue with my right foot after brain surgery numbness, etc and I started wearing these, it has made such a difference in my life, i have a hard time wearing sneakers now after wearing these, they are so comfortable and very healthy for your feet. It takes time to get used to them, first I wore them around the house, then walked around in them, then the gym, now I wear them everywhere, and it is amazing the conversations I get from people about them, they look adorable in my opinion and make your feet look a lot smaller then they are. It did take a bit of time buying and returning to get the right sizes in the different styles, to find what I liked but it was well worth it, they will work with you on this also. Good luck I hope you have the success story I have had with these.

    Agreed: Footbed is narrow and long, otherwise great shoe

    By 

    from Edmonton, AB

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers V-RUN:

    If you fit Nike runners well, these will probably work for you. (I have short wide feet, so I don't wear Nike!) I ordered one size down as instructed, and the footbed is a bit long bit of room in the toe pockets) and the uppers are REALLY tight width wise around the foot.

    Now, most Vibrams feel REALLY tight at first until they settle in, so I'm giving these a breaking in period because I DO love that the sole really is a good compromise between a traditional runner and a barefoot shoe. Long running workouts on concrete or old gym floors with windsprints were a bit too intense on the other models, so I got these. They have just that little extra bit of structure and cushion while keeping everything we love about a barefoot shoe. So I really hope the uppers will relax enough to be comfortable for a good workout. My favorite Five Fingers were all super tight at first or dug in someplace and made me think "I can't possibly wear these" but now they're all amazing, so I have faith!

    Recommend Vibram produce another run of these, but in a wide option as well. I would buy several.

    These are great for road or trail.

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers V-RUN:

    These are now my favorite shoe for road or trail. If I try to wear "normal" running shoes, they hurt my knees!
    I also wear slip on Vibrams all day, so I didn't have to train to wear them running.
    Took theseveral on a 5 mile technical trail and they got a little sand in the back, but otherwise were perfect.

    Favorite shoe ever

    By 

    from Massachusetts

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers V-RUN:

    These are my favorite shoe. I love just wearing it out for a bit. These run a little big - my usual 38 size I sometimes feel like I'm swimming. I really only notice it because I get crazy blisters every time I run in them. Next pair I'll size down. Unfortunately they're crazy pricey. I got these when they went 50% around the end of the year, and I'll do the same thing then. Next time I'll go for a 37! I love feeling like I have nothing on my feet when I run or even just walking around.

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers V-RUN:

    I love the VRuns! I've been wearing Vibrams for over 6 years now and this hands down is the most comfortable pair I've had. They are great for walking where there are rocks. A bit to much shoe for water but great on the trails!

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers V-RUN:

    I absolutely love my VRuns. They were my first pair of fivefingers and I now own three pairs. They're light, breathable, flexible and just all over great running shoes. They're literally a second pair of skin and I highly recommend them.

    My favourite running shoes ever!

    By 

    from Victoria, BC

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers V-RUN:

    I've been running in V-Runs for 6 months and I adore them. The sole is just thick enough that small stones don't hurt and thin enough to keep me feeling free and shoeless! The fabric is soft, light and breathable. I love the bright pink colour, which I'm sure makes me run faster :)
