Raw deal

This shoe started off well enough. They felt great and light.

That wore off as the heel continued to rub my achilles
area raw during photo assignments. Very painful.

I too had the same issue where the shoe wore my heel raw. Once I built up callouses I was fine provided I wore wool socks. It's too bad this happens because aside from this issue I did like them. They are very easy on and off, light and have decent tread. More of a light hiking shoe and good all around every day shoe than something i would turn to specifically for hiking.

I agree, I haven't done any serious hiking in them, I left that for the Merrell Barefoot Tough Glove I had. But just walking around outdoors for a while I started noticing a hot spot where your sore is. I can only imagine doing anything serious for prolonged periods of time. Other than that they are great. Light, really grippy (gotta love Vibram), really tough and great ventilation.
