Comments about BODY GLOVE Men's 3T BareFoot Gladiator Water Shoes:
I love these BareFoot Gladiators. I use them for running and hiking the mountains as well as around town. They are also just right for working out with my kettlebells, climbing rope etc. I like them so much that I bought 8 pairs of them just in case they quit making them. I have been wearing my first pair for 18 months now and they are holding up well. The grip is outstanding on the rocky terrain of my local mountains. I like the way these come up around the ankles which keeps most of the little rocks and such from getting into the shoes. The drainage screens on the bottom let water out when I have to cross creeks. It took me a couple of days to figure out that getting them on was best accomplished by loosening all the fasteners and the sliding in my forefoot and hooking a finger under the heel to pull it on. Now it's easy. What I like the most about these is that they allow my foot to function as it was designed to function with a bare minimum of sole protection. I find the 3 toe design to work better for the shape of my foot than the other ones that use 5 toe design. Plus these Gladiators weigh a little less, have less padding, and are as close to being barefoot as I have found. The only downside is that they are not made in women sizes. However one of my female running friend found that the men's size 7 fit her (she is a size 8 in women's).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
