I've been running trails wearing minimal and barefoot shoes for more than one year wearing different brands and up to this day i was looking for a shoe that didn't let hot spots or blisters on my feet and I couldn't believe what happened today.I got this week my first pair of five fingers the V-trails. I went for a 10K run wearing some toe socks and for my surprise i finished with no blisters or hot spots on the ball of my feet or any other part of my feet. Not convinced of what happened I took off my toe socks and went another 5K running just with the V-trails on and I'm still surprised that I got no blister even without socks. I don't know how long they're going to last without tearing apart or something like that but I wish they last a long time. Great product.
