I really really want to start wearing Fivefingers but on my right foot, my big toe and my second toe are webbed together. Is there anyway I can make Fivefingers work for me or am I screwed? It would really suck if I'm not able to take advantage of the Fivefingers benifits because of this.  Sad

There are good alternatives to VFFs.  I'm currently using the Altra Samson and they have the same feel as the Bikilas, minor the toe pockets.  I like running trails and I've found that going downhill my toes smash into the ends of the toe pockets.  The Samsons are a good alternative for the trails.  I'd recommend looking at other minimalist options besides VFFs.  There are a few folks here on the forums who use alternatives to VFFs because it's a better fit for them.
