Xero Shoes DIY Sandal Kit

Product Review (submitted on 3 August 2013):
Ordered a pair of 4mm soles about 3 weeks ago. Already finished a half marathon in them and looking to go even further. I was a bit pessimistic to begin with but about 5 minutes into my first run I knew I was going to get along with them! I am now a barefoot convert and going back to my clumpy trainers is going to be impossible!
My first thoughts were 'I am going to stub my toes' - this hasn't happened and I have run on all sorts of terrain. I also thought the lace that runs between your toe will rub - it hasn't after about 40 miles in them.
I was so happy that I have bought a pair of 6mm soles as well plus a few other extras!
If anybody was not going to get on with these it would be me but I am very surprised how well I have taken to them.
I use them along side my Sockwa G3 when I am running on overgrown trails with stingers etc and what's best is that I wear my Xero Shoes to the trails then whip them off and stick them in my pack as their is nothing to them. I also wear them out and about so they are extremely versatile too.
Also for the price you cannot grumble, I am going to try to put the 5000 mile warranty to the test :-)
