I am wearing VFFs for about 4 months now and do a lot of things barefoot, too. I started running barefoot with the C25k program. My feet and toes get more and more flexible, and this is just wonderful. The only thing that seems to remain stiff are my big toes. I can hardly flex them downwards and I am miles away from grabbing anything with them (I can grab things with my other toes).

Do I need just more time, or are there any exercises I can do to improve the flexibility of my big toes?

I scrunch my toes in my komodos... They seem to be pretty flexable and strong after 3 months or so... Dont know if my toes are getting stronger or if my komodos are really broke in. I also do toe scrunches (hehe sounds like a excersice now that i think of it.) in my classics but not as well as the komo's

I don't know if you want to follow my lead but I can crack my toes just like most people crack their fingers.  And I'm not talking about one or two of the joints - I can crack just about every joint in my foot, including my ankle (in multiple directions), arch, and every joint in every toe - even that tiny bone on the tip!  So yeah - they're pretty flexible!  It may just be my genetic predisposition so you may not be able to repeat my stupid human trick...  (And NO!  Cracking joints does NOT cause arthritis!)  You may just want to stop short of cracking your joints and try some regular stretching exercises - grab you big toe and flex it up and down.
