i’ve been wearing these for just over a month now and they are killer.
the first day i put them on i was like no way will these work, i had to shimmy my little toes into the proper fingers and it just felt too weird having fabric between my toes but that feeling quickly dissipates.
the best thing about these is the ultra low profile and the grip. the grip is fantastic. it’s better than barefoot because you can grab everything with your toes which are encased in tacky, razor-siped rubber. just walking around i use my toes for grip everywhere.a huge improvement for squats,deads, cleans. and i find them especially awesome for overhead squats and single legged stuff where minute foot adjustment may may or break the lift. seriously the enhanced foot function compared to my normal kicks (adidas samba) is like the difference in the water with and without fins. not only can you grip everything but you can feel everything too. like the the texture of the flooring. even chalk dust on the floor.
the only thing negative i have to say is the don’t breath that well. actually i don’t think they breath any worse than any other shoe but there’s really nothing to absorb any sweat underneath so even a small amount of moisture is noticeable, especially on the sole. not a big deal though.
granted these shoes look a little goofy and therefore are not for everyone. i have no problem wearing them as people think i’m a stoner anyway. regardless of looks they’re now my favorite work-out shoe. as long as i don’t drop anything.
