Five Fingers Men's KSO
A reasonable price for a very technichal piece of equipment.
I've been really impressed with the quality of this product. It took a couple of runs to get used to and a couple of ice bath for my claves but once you get into the natural rythmn of running, this shoes really open up a whole new style of running. I worried first about running on either really rough terrain of pavements, but once you get comfortable with the minor adjustments in technique, it's not a problem. On the other side running through forest an natural terain feels really great. There is so much feeling through the sole and you feel really compelled to hop over anything in your way and sprint as much as possible. One recomendation I would make, would be to buy a couple of pairs of the sock with individual toes, as it can be cold (coming from Sweden) or can be sweaty. I've worn them for an ordinary walk and they're fine without socks, but if you're intending to push 10-15km it does get a bit sweaty.

like these !
I like these ! but you need a little confidence to wear them in public ! ( you do get a few funny looks lol) but hey who cares about that ! , you need to break your feet in a little at a time if your not used to going barefoot as you seem to use muscles that you did not know you had also build up to running in them to prevent damage to the soft tisssue ,other than that wear them enjoy them . follow the guidelines carefully when cleaning them ,washing temperature is important as well as selection of cleaning products as it could ruin the membrane in the shoes . I really like these as they are a break from the norm ,they seem to work and they are correcting little posture problems for me personaly, they also teach you to walk differently ,not pounding the ground heel first seems to be helping with my lower back, so so far a positive for me .
