I guess I'm lucky in that I can wear my Fivefingers to the office. Even when going to clients it's not a problem. On those occasions that they do notice, it always ends up in a discussion about the benefits of barefoot walking.

These look really nice!
Unfortunately, here in Europe it seems the only way to get them is Ebay.
True Linkswear doesn't seem to ship here.

About sizing, my left foot is exactly 28cm long, my right foot a bit shorter. I wear a 44 in the Vibram FF Speed and a 45 in the KSO Evo (though there is a bit of space in the KSO Evo).

Do you think getting size 11 for this shoe would be enough, or is 11.5 the saver bet?

Style, build, and waterproofing all seem great... but are they breathable? If not, a full day at the office could lead to serious smelliness.

I think if they really wanted them to be stealthy, they should have made the golf lugs black too, rather than white. I still think these would work nicely for formal occasions, despite the stark white spots on the sole. I wonder if a sharpie marker would work to tone them down some.

Is the back of the heel hard/stiff?

So close, yet so far. The logo tag along the laces has to go. The white stitching / brown trim at the upper/sole junction scream "not a dress shoe." Finally, the two tone sole is a deal breaker. It will not be in my closet unless those changes are made.

Lars - I think my feet are exactly 27cm long and these shoes have maybe an extra 2cm beyond my toes. Given that I wear 43 vibrams, you might want to go 11.5 to ensure you've got the extra toe room. I like to have a little extra room at the toes.

Philip, thanks for your answer!
2cm is a LOT of toe room though. Usually I have about 1cm.
So maybe 11 would be enough after all?

This has potential , save for the white lugs. 1. It's "waterproof" , 2. it doesn't have an odd shape

The pictures you have up here with green laces are deceiving. Only the white version comes with green laces. The black version is rather plain looking as to not attract attention.

Another thing is it isn't available widely so you essentially have an artificially inflated price.

Daniel - I feel like they're pretty breathable. I haven't had any issues with sweaty/smelly.

Mr. Leigh - I actually thought about trying out a sharpie, but never did as I figured it would just rub off.

Nimue - The back is a bit firmer than the other TRUEs I have (probably based on the type and thin "dress shoe" cut of the leather), but I haven't had any issues with painful rubbing because of the little foam pad on the achilles.

A C C - On the TRUE website, only the white shows the green laces, but the black pair I received showed up laced with green laces. So the picture is how I received them and I had to change the laces to black.

I don't understand the need to discontinue models on a regular basis. It makes me a bit leery. They change before the information is out to those seeking this very specialized product. And, if Inbee likes her shoes, is she just going to want to change equipment when they wear out, presumably in short order?
