These are my first pair of barefoot shoes and I simply cannot stop wearing them! I actually try to find more excuses to go out just so I have a reason to put them on. The cushioning is a lot different than any other shoe I've worn, but I'm getting used to it and am actually starting to prefer it. I originally wanted to buy the Life Tour Glove shoe, but it unfortunately did not come in my size. This shoe is great though, and it looks just as good as the picture shows!
