If you ever plan on advancing to clipless pedals, it will become a moot point--you'd need different shoes for the bike than you would for the swim and run.

Thanks for the info.
It would reduce transition time because I wouldn't have to put on my sneakers after I got done swimming.

You would bike in the five fingers? I guess I am not understanding how the five fingers would eliminate transition time?

Hi and congrats on your tri's. first off I love running in mine. but it takes some getting used to and you can not go to fast in adding mileage. as for racing a tri in them, if T time is no big deal it would be a fun, I have been running in mine for about 4 months now and can go about 4 miles on the black top. out on the trails I an go 10k with no problems

Has anyone done a tri in these shoes? I'm new to triathlons. I did 2 last summer, one yesterday, and I have one coming up August 8th. I was thinking about purchasing them to use because they have a pair that can be used for watersports. It would make the transition time non-existent because I could keep the same shoes on.
