Was really excited until I realized my deformed foot has an extra toe. Damn my mutant genes!

Haha. I think it's because a lot of people don't have (or rather, haven't practiced) the ability to flex/wiggle the pinky toe independently of the other four toes, which makes getting the pinky toe into a dedicated toe on the shoe somewhat difficult. I own a couple pairs of Vibrams and I have trouble with my left pinky toe when getting them on. The Filas look like the "fourth" toe is double wide to accommodate two toes.

can you wear these in the water

So, if anyone's tried em... is the fit narrow, normal, or wide?

...in addition to the questions of if they are comfortable, help with running aches and will make me eggs in the morning.

I have a pair with a tongue for each toe.

I wonder how this one feels when two toes share one tongue.

I guess whatever cuts cost, this definitely doesn't look right.

Anybody has shoes with 4 tongues only? Please give us some experience info ...

Yes (at least I did). I purchased some of these while in Jamaica to climb a waterfall. Kept from cutting my toes, and gave me some more stability than my normal sneakers wouldn't of had.

I could see where putting the final 2 piggies together makes sense. The biggest complaint I have about my Vibrams (I have 2 styles) is the fit on my pinkie toe....

In all seriousness tho, these are awesome. I have some soccer buddies and cross country friends that swear by them. Not necessarily this exact brand/pair BUT if youve always wanted to try toe shoes this has got to be the best time ever.

Probably better for me then. I never could keep my little toe in its slot in toe socks.

If I buy multiple pairs they all have to be the same size and style? That's something of a fail....

EDIT - Oh - just add them one at a time. The whole cart and all that...

Any specs on the width? Is it one width fits most? (I'll assume it's a D width).

and twice as durable. I had a pair of skele-toes wear out in a couple of months, where-as my Vibrams, while doing the same tasks, have withheld constant abuse and still going strong.

that was fun while it lasted!

You buy water shoes, you dont buy sneakers, they do make water shoes that look like cool sneakers.

Can anyone comment on sizing? Is it true to size. I'm having my last two toes surgically fused.

Compared to my Vibrams, which are still going strong, these wore out in a couple of months. I bought a pair for my 10 year old son and they wore out in about 3 weeks. I really wanted them to be durable and awesome, but they're not. Which, I suspect, is why they're here.

I've never owned a pair of five fingers shoes, but when comparing this model others, these look like regular "thick-sole" runnings shoes with just separated toes. It seems that defeats the whole purpose of buying these fingered shoes in the first place, which is get that foot-to-ground contact feel and extra mobility.

Try the toe socks by Injinji. They are the best and are basically made for toe shoes.

I ditched an otherwise entertaining Facebook friend because he kept posting pictures of these disgusting toe condoms. But for 25 bucks, they might come in handy for a hike I take following a boulder-strewn stream.

These are the same as the non orange pair. $50 is the lowest option.

Anyone know how these are if you have bad arches???

I've had a pair of these (women's version) for over a year now and LOVE them. They still look and feel exactly like new, so they hold up well.

Pros:
- super comfortable
- better footing than conventional shoes
- surprisingly good arch support for such a lightweight shoe

Cons:
- they're just fabric between the toes, so not waterproof/rainy day shoes (although they'd probably be fine if you *intended* to get wet)
- if walking on small gravel, it may tend to lodge in the soles
- toe socks are expensive

I've got friends who have tried both these and their 5-toed competitors, and they say the 5-toed ones are superior, but for my money I'm very happy with these.

It looks like the end of my favorite nursery rhyme:

This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed at home.
This little piggy had roast beef.
And these little piggies ... ??

Anyone know how these fit size wise? The chart looks like you measure heel-toe and that puts me at two sizes down from my normal shoe size, I figured a half down but that seems a bit much.

*Fits true to size for the barefoot wearer. Order a half size up to accommodate socks

And if the shoe don't fit? I mean I have some shoes that are 8, some 8.5, workboots that are 9, and some 7.5's I can fit in as well....

I've got 2 pairs of Vibrams, and 2 pairs of SkeleToes. SkeleToes feel a lot closer to wearing a standard running shoe, but the toes do help for giving you additional traction. I like my Vibrams more, but I'm still a pretty big fan of the SkeleToes (and mine have been given a lot of use and held up just fine).

Wondering same but it says true to size unless your wear socks, then half size bigger
