I love my Vibram Five Fingers, but I always tell people that if they can't train barefoot, they can't train in Vibrams.

The sole is so light and flexible that it can be rolled into a tube, either from the end or lengthwise. The separate toes allow me to use my long monkey toes for grip when I'm climbing. There's nothing to throw off my stance, my weight distribution, or my balance.

There's also no cushioning or support. For me, it's a good trade off, but I know they're not for everyone.

I Love my VFFs too but I find the extremely Awesome grip develops bad technique. So now I'm using Feiyues. They have that Barefoot feel, and are a little more protective. The Vibrams perfected my landings and drops though.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken
A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king.

That awesome grip has been rubbed and torn right off of mine.  ;D

Actually, I have the leather ones, and right now I have several little tears "fixed" with gorilla glue. I'm very hard on shoes.
