I am usually unable to wear anything with out socks, cotton socks. My feet will sweat & get stinky. They won't if I wear cotton socks. Even my rafting sandals can only be worn when rafting (in & out of the water). They have good ventilation, obviously, but the rubber bottoms are enough to get sweaty.
So I'm wondering if I'd be able to wear something like these "five toes" with out my feet getting smelly.
Any users have feed back on this?

They are machine-washable, so if they get smelly you toss them in the wash. Also, they breath really well, so there isn't as much sweat involved as in some other shoes.

Gotta disagree with that, Tinfish. They get stinky... its a known thing, many discussions on their site about the best way to destink and prevent stink. Not sure why, but both mine do.
But they are easy to wash, its not that big a deal. I don't smell so well, so SWMBO gives me a wrinkly nose look and I'll wash them.

Have 3 pairs. none of them stink.
Had problems with stinky shoes before. not the fivefingers, though.

You can easily wash them in your washing machine.

Maybe its a reverse thing? My feet don't normally stink... but the vffs get a bit ranky. Different folks, different feet.

Thats a great picture.

Did 9 miles after work with the girl and the dog today, on the trail catching a cache. She (the girl, not the d0g) wears a pair as well.

Now upstairs to spend some quality time with said girl.

If I remember correctly, you and I wear the same size shoes...I'll just wait for you to decide you don't like them and sell them in the flea market.

BTW, I still have those oxtar boots you didn't like some years back...

To me they are funny and make you look like monkeys.

Enjoy the ride, even if you have the funny shoes on.
