I've tried VFFs before and I won't be going back.
Barefoot runs on sidewalks after dark? not bad/pretty good.
Runs and hikes in Merrell vapor gloves? breddy good
Lems at work? great and cushy
Minimuses for running and hiking? dope.
Bedrock sandals for runs and hikes, especially with water? A-okay/good foot feels
Five fingers? You know how latex gloves all fit okay but never quite right? That's what happens when you introduce little mini-shoes for each of your toes. The upper dries at about an average rate, but not the sides of the toes. Have you ever folded a pair of jeans that were still only slightly damp, and in the morning they haven't dried a bit? Imagine doing that but with a bunch of actually wet bits of fabric that touch each other but don't ever quite see the light of day. Not to mention that the fabric smells on its own. Maybe not the mesh upper on the KSOs I had, but the insole and toes. Somewhere between normal wet foot smell and a hyper-concentrated pool gunk/abandoned hot tub.
If you need the toes, then do whatever you want. If you want minimalist, get something with a nice roomy toe box, zero drop, and as much or little padding as you want. Good luck.
