They're interesting shoes. They definitely take awhile to get used to. Your calves are going to feel like rocks for days if not weeks unless you already do a lot of minimalist training. I've only been using them for a few weeks and I already notice that I feel more efficient when I run.

I used them and love them. They are great to run in. Just ease in, and make sure to cosntantly practice with them, cause if you go for awhile without using them you lose some of that strength in your feet.

Wrap your feet in newspaper. Or maybe you could have someone's grandmother knit you boots to wear. Perhaps, just perhaps, you could dip your tootsies in hot tar.

Seriously kid, what the hell are you looking for? Rubbing and cuts from blades of grass? If you want to run on grass, find a football field or a golf course. Or maybe you can figure this thing out for yourself by trial and error.

I have run in them and love them. I use them for my easy shorter miles. [run2christ] posts are very accurate.

If your looking to run fast. I wouldn't use them for more than 20% or so of you mileage, and instead use a minimal trainer like nike free or whatever. My legs got kinda stale running in them all the time and stride got shorter hard to stretch it back out when i raced, and hard time finding that extra gear when I tried running fast in them. I haven't run or worn them that much over the winter, probably get a couple 5 mile runs a week in them and wear them casually instead of running in them all the time when it starts getting warmer. They are nice on the roads in protecting against that wear on your feet. Really you mine as just keep doing what your doing and running a little bit full barefoot and get some vibram to wear when your not running so you can have better foot health.

I have some and I like them.  I've used them on a few 10Ks in the summer and they're swell.  Takes some time to get used to stepping properly, but you'll get used to them or you'll pitch them.

i did a lot of my (small, slow) base in them this summer... but i had a nice break in may where i was able to run 1-3 miles a day to eeeaaasssiiilly break into them. like encee43 said, your stride'll get tons smaller. but i ran barefoot on the roads for a while- try not pushing off from your calves as much? of couse i stopped because i stepped on a rock the wrong way and couldnt walk for a week... on asphalt and gravel, vff's and barefoot just dont seem to cut it for hard training, but i guess if your feet dont get hurt, there's no way the rest of your body would
