I've had five finger shoes for years now.
They really aren't good for everything, and for some things, they are downright terrible.

However, they are incredibly comfortable and very nice to do some running in, and very nice for walking around in, and for beach, and surfing, and places where something amphibious is needed... and very nice for (my) general foot health.

The things they're bad at is anything that they are very cold. They get wet very easily with even a tiny bit of moisture on the ground. They look awfully strange when doing anything serious or when you want people to pay attention to what you say or do rather than what's on your feet.

I like running in Five Fingers, but if you're going to try it, take it really slow. Short, gentle runs to get your feet and legs used to it. Don't run to far too soon. They feel great to run in. Very natural, light feeling. I find them good to wear at the gym too. They give you good connection to the ground for squats, deadlifts, etc.

The fabric on top broke easily on my KSOs (when running in the woods; twigs, roots etc), so I gave up on them after the second pair. Now using the Trail Gloves.

I'd like to try the Spyridons though.

Got a pair of the KMD's. Absolutely amazing for all olympic lifts. I have never liked running and running in these without taking it slow results in agonising lower calf pain!
Depends what you want them for though. But I highly recommend them!
