I tried Vibram fivefinger shoes, but for how expensive they were, they didn't last very long. I've been looking at Vivos, but they are even more expensive. Do they last better than the Vibrams? Or Does anyone wear a barefoot shoe for daily wear that they've found very durable?

I'd love to know too. I've been considering a pair but worried about the expense and worth.


Anyone wearing barefoot shoes?

I run in New Balance Minimus roads or Saucony Haitoris.  I just recently switched to Vivo Jing Jings and Merrell Zest Gloves for daily wear.  I've only had them 2 weeks but so far they have worn well. I'm a teacher so I'm on my feet all day. I was having a hard time adjusting to regular shoes after running in minimalist shoes. Wearing minimal shoes all day has been nice. : )
