Vibram Fivefingers Trek LS in black. My 2nd pair of Fivefingers shoes (1st pair are the kso's); I liked the first pair so much I decided to grab a pair of these on sale. The leather makes them a tad more presentable, the laces instead of velcro closures keep them from fraying my jeans/pants, and the thicker sole/insole give a bit more support and allow me to wear them in the winter (w/toe socks of course)!

I just wore them all day today- these are just incredible. Better than the kso's (unless you're going through water). Even my wife, who thinks they're ridiculous, admitted this pair looked really good with jeans.

I have really been wanting to get a pair of those gorilla shoes. Where'd you get 'em?

REI had these on sale for $40 off. If I was you, I'd go somewhere like EMS (or REI if one is nearby) and try them on to get your size first, because they're sized like NOTHING else. If you google whatever style you want a lot of places have them on sale. Just watch out for the knockoffs- best way to tell is by clicking on their "contact us" and see if there's actually a phone # or address.

you might also try a few different styles because the difference between the 2 pairs I have is HUGE- I'm preferring the newer ones w/ a thicker sole and a bit more support.

Just picked up another pair of my vibram five fingers shoes- my 3rd pair. This time a pair of brown kso treks. I am done buying these now for awhile!
