Have there been any female bloggers to review the Performa yet? The Moc looks absolutely amazing!

Not that I know of - will definitely keep tabs on that front though!

I'm really looking forward to getting a pair of Mocs.

I hope they're durable enough for really nice, clean, asphalt. I'd like to run in them too.

I'm with Grok...

Justin, once you have an idea of the durability beyond kicking it around the house, please let us know! (Though, I know you were going to do that anyways, it makes me feel special to actually say it. :)

Certainly will do!

How does the sizing compare to the other models? I think you're the same size as me (43), did you get the same size in the Moc?

Sizing should be the same as Classics. If you're a 43 in Classics, grab a 43 in Mocs!

I'm hoping they are a little tolerant of the outside world. I'd like to make a black pair of these my everyday shoes for the office and walking about town.

Nice job again Justin.

They look pretty cool.
Here's hoping you get some bikila's soon!

Ha given that the Bikilas aren't due out until February of 2010 ... well let's just say it's gonna be a few months! Which is good because I have a lot of VFFs to experiment with at present!

Great job with the videos, very informative. Zeke's a cool cat. He's a good co-host.

I'm looking forward to sticking these suckers into my pockets. So when I do have to wear 'shoes' I can jus' slide these guys on. When do you think mocs will start shipping out to customers? Thank you for the video.

I want these. PRONTO.
STAT.
when they shipping?

09/20/09 @ 12:11
Comment from: admin [Member]  

MizFit, I think they are shipping *now* -- as in, your local retailer may be carrying them now or should be carrying them any day now.

I've seen what I'd call a "stub" sales page for the Performas on travelcountry.com, for example (not sure if that means they have them now or what).

Do you have to hand wash this particular model being that they are mostly made of leather?

I think Zeke makes a nice addition to the video. Very interesting footwear!

They look very nice, but I'm not sure I see the point of an indoor-only model. What do you plan to use them for mainly? I suppose weight training and such, but what's the advantage over any of the other models?

Hey Justin. Have you by any chance taken the Mocs for a spin outside to see how they fare in that setting?

01/26/10 @ 08:05

@Peter,

I have -- just for walks though. They fare fine on a walk, though I'm sure sustained use would ultimately do them in!

Just got a pair for my, um, birthday, ha! They feel great, through the pull tab setup is a little different than the KSOs. These will be great for work.

Best,

Hi,
Greetings from Germany.
Luckily, found this great resource just before I wanted to order from a fake dealer in China.
Looking for a VFF for Yoga. Didn't have any VFF yet. I like the idea of the Moc made 100% of leather. My only issue is that I have heavily sweating feet with which I'm sliping back and forth on the mat if doing Yoga barefooted. How does the Moc behaves if I have wet feets? Or is maybe the classic or KSO better?

Thanks for an answer.
Matthias

Any update on the wear and tear on these shoes?

Those do look good but the question that comes to my mind is "What is the point?"
I have a pair of VFF for outdoor use but when indoors (in my own home) I go barefoot.The moc strikes me as "shame" shoe in that you will end up using it indoors ONLY if you aren't allowed to walk around barefoot or are ashamed to do so. As for yoga, pilats, etc you can do those things barefoot without any problems (physically).

These look incredible, and I'm sure are outrageously comfortable. But I can't find them for sale anywhere anymore. Did Vibram discontinue them?

These were discontinued, but some stores are still clearing them out. I think it was the 7 pods that did them in. If these only had the classic heel, they'd be great for running errands on a lazy Sunday. As they are now, they're very prohibitive (much like how thin driving gloves are only good for driving, and even then, they are completed form over function).

The problem is finding a middle ground of minimalism and practicality. The KSO Treks look okay, but they are more like boots than loafers, which is what these would be ideal for. Unless they remake the model with the full sole so the material on the arch of the foot is protected, these will go the way of the dodo (or the Surge).

Hey, thanks for the great review! I only with they carried them in smaller sizes. Being a male and having small feet really has it's downsides. Would it be totally unacceptable if I were to get a pair of the Performas in black? I'm not quite sure how much a difference the larger vamp in the Mocs make, and I would love to get a pair.

Just bought a pair of Performa Janes in black (I'm a guy). Was at first sceptical about the size, since I had to get a size larger than my Vibram KSOs, and their possible "girlishness," so I set them aside for a few weeks. But now I've been dancing around a little in them and I think I like them and like the larger size too (a little more breathing room).

I'll plan to post more after more experience with them. My primary complaint about the KSOs is they cause my feet to get really clammy and smelly; I'm curious to see if these will be any better.
