Size:
Usually I get 43EU, this time I took 42 after a lot of time spent with the printed templates... And they do feel a tad small for me. For running it's probably ok, but when walking and everything else, the toes are going to be exposed, just because the stripes can't really hold your foot that firmly(after few minutes they loosen a bit-more on that later...) Just take your normal size, my next would be 43.
Durability:
After few weeks and a couple of washes, I can spot some rust on the bottom rivet washers. We'll see what happens. Stripes will do fine for a year I'm guessing. The Vibram soles: hiking on stones and concrete gives them a beating, but they would last up to 2 years (way more if you only use them in summer).
Functionality:
Takes a couple of times to figure out how to pull the stripes, counter-intuitive at first, but then totally seamless and quick. Up by the stripe and to the right(for the left sandal). Just one hand. The soles bend and deform into a boat, shaped by your feet after two weeks. Nice
Comfort:
The stripe between the toes is going to be a pita for some weeks, by far the biggest obstacle... choose the spot wisely! No way around it I'm afraid but I'm getting more used to it day by day. Interestingly, while running they're totally unnoticeable, as are the sandals themselves. The material is gentle on your skin, no burns. Odor sets in after few days, you're gonna wash them twice a week if that's your main shoe.
Usage:
Running: perfect, this is what they do best. You won't notice a thing(besides the stones on a trail ;). Actually the soles are harder then Feiyues or say Converse sneakers, but don't worry, you'll feel the ground fine. Be ready for the pain in the calves! No heel/ankle support obviously.
Walking/Hiking/Cycling: All good, it's just that the sandal loosens way more often while walking then running... and is a little slippery on rocks. Done some steep hiking- not as safe as Source soles... again, these are primarily for running.
Taichi, dancing, etc. - awesome, really cool for dancing as the soles are just like a second skin, and slippery enough for all the twisting/sliding.

If they won't last at least 18 months, I'm going to say they're overpriced, if not overpriced in general. It's just 200g vibram plus nylon after all. I'd rate one star less but it's the best sandal I've had. Fantastic.

    Amazing pair and service

    I love that they are the right thickness not too light n not too think, they're perfect. They fit perfectly. And the strapping system is the best i have seen. Monk customer service was super nice, and helped me a lot to get the right size and fit. They came to the US in no time. Thank you for a wonderful pair with no compromises
