Vibram 5 fingers. That specific model is the KSO "Keep Stuff Out". The company makes high quality soles for most of the boot companies and a lot of shoes companies. These are the only model they sell directly as their own. They have been on short supply because they were only filling military contracts for a couple months.

Wow not a bad price point either. I wonder how it will work out as one of my toes are webbed....

If they are fitted properly they are a little loose to allow some movement. My toes are not all the way up into the toe pockets. Try and find a dealer near you to try a pair on. They are great for your support muscles in your feet. I know someone who runs marathons in them (took a while for her feet to get strong enough). She now has no foot pain and can run more often.

I heard its designed to make you run on the balls of your feet. Which is the way you're suppose to run...

The best soles I ever had on a pair of boots back when I was in the Army was the Vibrams soles I had on my Jungle Boots. They really absorbed the impact well, and had lots of traction. I still wear them to work in the yard, they must be 14 years old now.

Pretty sure they wont work but it's worth a try if there is a dealer near you. It's written somewhere on their website that webbed feet/non equal length feet wont work.:( This means I gotta buy a size 10 right and a 9.5 left.
