Five fingers said to the face

Has anyone tried the Vibram Five Fingers for urban running? I am reading Born to Run and now I’m dying to try them. I was mildly curious before. 

I have been increasing my milage lately and feeling it. I’m curious if these would help. I want to be able to run until I stop breathing, so not getting injured seems kind of important.

I’m trying to decide between the TrekSport and Bikila. I would also like to order a pair of Barefoot Ted’s sandals and give them a spin.

    I've got the KSO five fingers and i run and hike in them. Though at this point i wear them way more often than any other shoes. Running in them is amazing and if you do the whole toe first run you get an amazing calf exercise.

    So I know I'm SUPER late to the party (just discovered your blog and reading back through time…)but…!

    I just got the Bikila and am truly in love.

    (PS, loved the way you put it – want to be able to run til you stop breathing…I so echo that sentiment!)

    @betty you aren't so late to the party because i'm sometimes very slow at making choices. i'm ordering these this week, so knowing that you love them makes me all the more confident.
