For this review of the Youth Vibram Five Fingers Speed model, we interviewed the wearer. Andrew is nine years old and a very active boy! He loves to run around after school, bike ride and skateboard. He usually wears Nike sneakers.
BFR: How was the fit?
A: Overall, they felt a little skinny. The toes and heel felt good. The laces were easy to tie, unlike other shoes. Since they were a little skinny for my foot, they left a mark when I took them off. They didn’t hurt though.
These shoes are cool! I’ll definitely keep wearing them.
BFR: What did you think of the style?
A: Some people said they look funny. I think they look cool and my friends think the shoes are cool and funny. Some said they wanted a pair.
They look better with shorts than pants. I think they’re more for casual wear. I like them with shorts and tee shirt best. I think black and red would be a good color combination. I like the ties because it makes it unique from others.
A: I mostly wear them for playing, running and to go to school.
BFR: Did you have to break them in?
A: Yes, they were a little stiff at first but then they got comfortable.
BFR: Did they get smelly or dirty?
A: They got a little dirty on the white part, but not smelly.
