Socks or no socks. That is the question

So I bought a pair of New Balance Minimus Vibrams today, and I was just wondering if people wore socks with them or not.

All my clients who have the Minimus wear socks with them.

Re: Socks or no socks. That is the question

I usually wear them without socks, but I'm also not doing a lot of running in them. You'll probably get some blisters and raw spots if you don't ease into it and give your feet some time to adapt.

Re: Socks or no socks. That is the question

The question you have to ask yourself is; how dedicated are you to washing your shoes that often?

Its the only complaint I have for my VFFs.
