I have three pairs of Joe Nimble, Nimble Toes shoes - I started with the white (great with summer dresses), then the black (for work - still count as 'closed in' shoes), then the blue (just because I love the colour - and they are great with jeans). I've tried several other brands of barefoot shoes, but all have their downsides (too tight, too heavy, too thin sole). These are the only shoes I wear now. They have plenty of room in the toe box, but don't feel loose. They are nice and snug around the laces, without being too tight. They are light-weight and flexible. They are comfortable from the first wear. My feet don't get too hot in them, and I don't need to wear socks on a hot day as they don't smell. They're warm enough for the winter (with socks). They're not waterproof, but they dry quite quickly (and I purchased some 'over shoes' from eBay for a couple of dollars that go over them easily if it's really wet underfoot). I absolutely love them and am so happy to have finally found shoes that are comfortable, don't 'damage' my feet, and look good. I have very wide, but shallow feet so finding shoes that don't cramp the toe box, but also aren't too deep has always been a challenge. The result of wearing shoes that are too tight in the toe box (and too high in the heel) has been a bunion on each big toe and tailor's bunions forming on my little toes. More concerning, though, I have had a Morton's Neuroma on each foot that has required surgery. After less than a year of wearing the Nimble Toes (and almost nothing else) the bunions have started to correct themselves. Sadly, there's no way around the Morton's Neuroma other than surgery, but I'm confident that neither will come back - or form between my other toes - now that I'm in the right shoes. I've given these shoes a five star rating because they absolutely deserve it. Can't recommend them highly enough!
Beautifully crafted shoes. I can wear my correct toes in it. Looks cool. Love the fact the front is broken up by leather all around it making it look narrower than it actually is. It’s my first pair of wide toe boxed shoes so I am still getting used to walking in a more natural sole.
These shoes are comfort plus!
I made the switch from vivobarefoot to Bprimal with no regrets!
My Bprimal shoes feel great on and look great as well unlike most other barefoot shoes. Very true to size. Would definitely recommend!
The nimbletoes are extremely comfortable and are one of the only minimalist shoe that actually fits my foot across my toes. The only negative to this shoe, is that if it gets wet at all, the white turns a blotchy dark purple. I made the mistake of wearing a grey injinji sock liner with these shoes, and after a quick rain shower, my shoes have coloured marks that have seeped through. From seeing other reviews, this seems to be just what the material does. It won't turn me off purchasing these shoes again though, but I'll stick to darker colours. I still give it 5 star even with the material concerns.
I've had these shoes for about 2 weeks now. I used them for CrossFit and a little bit of trail jogging (I can't claim it's running). I reallly love them. They are super light. I have very wide hobbit feet so they are perfectly wide for me and my short shoes. The grip is pretty decent. The ONLY downside is the white gets very easily dirty and it's a challenge to get them clean - mind you I haven't tried any soaps or detergents yet. Just plain old water and and an old tooth brush. I'm sure I'll get over it eventually.
