Definitely the worst VFF


Rubber pieces fell off after only 3 runs I switched them for the v-trail I hope Vibram dices this problem with the next model.

remaking the Bikila


Loved the Bikila and this is the updated version. I wear a US mens 10 in Merrells and 10.5 in running shoes. Purchased the 43 and they are perfect! Nice and roomy. I love everything about them minus the tab on heel which is causing discomfort when worn barefoot. Don't care for the Injini socks but they solved the heel rub. I will purchase again. I love my Merrell Vapor Gloves but feel that the V-run has a better fit and cushion even though there is almost nothing there.



Sizes have changed


I've purchased several Five Finger shoes since 2010. And I've always fit in a size 41 with not problems. This shoe feels way too narrow and tight. I liked the Bikila Evo's so much better. I've purchased Furoshiki's as well and even those sizes have changed this year. I wish their sizes would stay consistent because of they don't fit they make you pay to ship them back. Which can be very costly.



Very comfortable running shoes


After my old five fingers wore through, I decided to look into the newer design of the V-Run. I read some reviews that described discomfort/blisters on the top of the foot (under the laces), so I wore them around the house for a month before taking them running, and then a week on a treadmill for a break-in period; this worked and are now very comfortable for both running and walking.

Stupid Comfortable


I bought the v-runs because I'm a fore foot sprinter and my other running shoes were on their last leg. These vibrams are my first pair as I was looking to give the minimal shoes a try. These are insanely comfortable, although, I cannot give a comparison to other vibram five finger models. The only reason I cannot give five stars is, although, the fabric and stitching is of high quality, the nature of the light weight fabric seems as though it would not hold up to heavy outdoor use for very long such as concrete running. Others have had issues with this it would seem after reading the comments, however, this is not an issue for me because I run strictly in controlled environments such as on treadmills and never wear the v-runs outside or on surfaces that I think may wear down the materials on the shoe.



Ran my first Half Marathon


Great shoes. But give yourself plenty of time to get acclimated into this. If you rush in, you are inviting injuries. But the result of this V-run is so rewarding. No knee pain, no black toe nail after my half marathon.



Most Comfortable Model I Own!


I have been using Vibrams since 2010, when I got my first pair of the original KSO model. Since then, I have acquired the Spyridon, Seeya, Seeya LS, another KSO pair, and now the V-Run. This model is by far the best that I have used. In the past, I would run with Vibrams, but inevitably would stop due to injury issues. Most of the time it was myself doing too much, too soon. I took a three year break from using Vibrams on my run, and started running in Altra Zero Drop shoes. Recently, my Altras needed replacement, and I decided to give Vibrams another chance. The material of the V-Run is extrmely comfortable and soft. The upper stretches a bit, and you can tighten the laces for a more secure fit. The soles have a bit more texture, and thus, a bit more padding. Regarding sizing, I find they run big. I normally wear a size 41 across all previous models. For this model, I used Vibram's measurement criteria on their website, and used their recommended size. I went with a size 40. and they fit absolutely perfect. This is the first pair of Vibrams that I can use without getting blisters. I have done two seven mile runs, and didn't feel one blister. I did put a small piece of Mole Skin on the back of both pairs, because in previous models, the seams would give me blisters. I have now owned my pair for two weeks, and have put over 50 miles on the pair already. They are holding up great, and my legs have been feeling good. I did have some ankle soreness after two long runs, but ankle soreness is common after a long run for me - in any pair of shoes. I find that running in the Altra shoes for the past three years have acclimated my calves to absorb a full forefoot strike. I will be buying a second pair of the V-Run model. My only, and I mean only, complaint about the model is the lace system. The tension slider tends to come loose on one of my feet, causing the shoe to fit a bit looser after I start running. I will just buy a pair of normal shoe laces, and replace them.

my favorite running shoe ever


I bought this to switch to a minimalist shoe. I was running in Nike Free prior to this. Wore out my old ones, bough a new pair and didnt like the changes that were made to it so I decided to try a 5 finger shoe. I started off walking in these for a few weeks and then short runs for a few weeks. I definitely felt some soreness in certain areas of my foot and calf muscle from my body having to adjust. Nothing too painful and worked out with stretching and massage. In the past I had knee and back problems that would be aggravated when running which spurred my choice of going minimalist. Now I run pain free, and these shoes are so comfortable. The fit for me was perfect.

Good but a slippery fit causing blisters


I've been running in five finger meant for running for the past 7 years. I can never go back. That being said, I have the appropriate size and for the first time I get non stop blisters from all the shifting around. The top portion material seems to not be elastic enough. I've got 200 miles on the current pair, I'll keep bearing with these. I just really hope the next version has better material selection and that they come out before my thread wears out. I gave this a 3. Definitely room for improvement

Best overall five fingers model, best minimal running shoe


V-Run is the best overall five fingers for running and walking. It is a well evolved minimal running shoe, with a great combination of light minimal design and durable outer and inner materials. I believe it is the best minimal running shoe, period. The only negative: V-Run's lightness means it is not great in colder weather, say below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. I have had numerous pairs of five fingers of many types; if I could have only one model, V-Run would be my choice. I caught the front end of the five fingers wave in the wake of "Born to Run" at the start of 2010, and took the time and used my head to make the adaptation. To this day I continue to experience increasing benefits in foot and body health, movement awareness and abilities, overall athleticism and fitness for life, and competitiveness as a runner, just as claimed by Vibram and Christopher McDougall. As to other models, I love the KSO EVO for indoor workouts, but its sole material is not as durable on hard surfaces as V-Run. I have Trek Ascent Insulated for cold and snow/ice (where the others are terrible), Spyridon MR (V-Trail predecessor) for rugged trails, and an old KMD (V-Train predecessor) for the occasions when I want some structure or padding in the sole but less than the Spyridon. But V-Run remains my everyday choice and I just bought 3 more pairs.
