I find them disappointing too. The only thing I really really like are sandals. And not really the huaraches because I don't like fussing with the lacing and the toe thing. I like sandals that you can put on and the straps keep them on (no flip-flops) without you having to worry about them. Free toes, lots of air on the feet. That's the best feeling. Way better than Vibrams.
