Workers were super helpful and patient with me. Thankful that the owner stayed in business and was bold enough to carry such a variety of shoes, particularly these, in such trying times. I commend the bravery and wish nothing but the best for the business. I feel more mobile when I wear the vibrams and feel my foot strength has significantly improved since purchasing them. I can't speak to the longevity/durability yet, but I'm hoping they last a while.
