You should only use any Vibram shoe that has a harder sole like the Spyridons or Treksport or Lontra when
doing any hiking where rocks are involved. Much respect goes to you for using the Komodos on rocks or sharp objects, however it's not a wise choice and too risky for no real benefit.

I agree with AlphaDAD here.

You have proven you are a badass by hiking in KMDSports in rocky terrain, but sometimes a little more cushion isn't a bad thing. I have been running barefoot and using VFF for 3-4 years now and have hiked in Merrell Trail Gloves on really rocky terrain. No way would I do the same thing in my VFF Classics.

Shoot, even our ancestors used some cushion at times when needed. Either that or they would walk around the rocky terrain.

Just went for my second hike in Trek Sports and even though I'll only run in my KMD Sports or Bikilas I think I need something with more protection, especially if I plan on "speed" hiking. It was great having grip, but still slipped a couple of times and was a little nervous on the sharper rocks.

From one of the links here I found a deal on both the Merrell Barefoot Trail Glove and Vivobarefoot Synth Hiker, which would you recommend for someone who loves their Vibrams but wants protection from the rocks?
