Wow, like most newbies, I was really skeptical of the whole premise of VFF's.  Looking at them, I couldn't imagine they could be comfortable, and considered them just a silly "fad".  After reading reviews and doing a little web research, I tried a on a pair at my local REI (KSO's; gray camo), and was immediately hooked.  I followed the advice of reviewers, and got used to the feel over several days of home wear, itching to give them a good testing.  One of my favorite exercises is to walk dry beach sand, and boy, do these VFF's rock!  Much better foot/ankle training than the running shoes I'd been used to.  Walked about 1.5 miles on the beach in my new KSO's today, with no problem whatsoever.  With conventional shoes, there's always the risk of rolling an ankle, but I get much more stability with the VFF's.  They are the perfect combination of foot protection and bare foot "connection" to any surface.  Can't wait to try them when camping and light hiking.  I'm glad there's a forum like this one to share tips and enthusiasm about this revolutionary footwear!
