Die Schuhe passen mir sehr gut, keine Blasen oder Druckstellen. Wasserabweisend sind sie auch, so wie beschrieben. Hatte Sie schon ein paar mal im Einsatz und sie sehen echt gut aus. :)
Love these trainers but have an issue with the right foot. Left one is most comfortable running shoe I’ve ever had but the right one gives me a pressure sore under the ball of my foot - strange!
Good fit, nice and sturdy. Great for running. I have used them for about 2 months now (3 times a week).
I received these shoes at the beginning of May. At the beginning of September, the outsoles were already almost completely worn out. I am quite surprised because I thought that Vibram is supposed to be a very resistant, durable, and good-quality materials. But here in only 4 months of use the outsole became flat in various places and even got holes (see pictures).
They were my main shoes between May and August, but it's not like I was wearing them every day, since I was working from home and did not do sport (the most intensive use has been one week of mild hiking and one week walking in cities during the holidays). Before, I used to wear leather shoes, which in general last me two years (with outsole repaired every 8-12 months), knowing that before the pandemic I was not working from home and used to walk really a lot. My previous hiking shoes lasted for maybe 5 years, without any repair. I also used to wear them frequently when going to work or walking around during the day, alternating with my other shoes. So given the past longevity so my shoes, I am really surprised of how the WVSport shoes look after only 4 months of mild use.
I got offered a replacement for free, but it lasted barely longer. Given the price, I would definitely not order them again, despite the fact that they are really comfortable and convenient to use.
I think they could be quite comfortable, but they run very small: Even when I went up a size from the size that has worked for me at WVS in the past and that I usually where elsewhere too, they were too small for me (rubbing on the outside of the toes, I noticed too late to return them).
I think the cushioning might not be as good as with other running shoes I've bought (but I've only tried them once for that).
They look good and are comfortable enough to wear for everyday use.
