I really wanted to like these. I love the idea of just slipping them on and being done with it. Unfortunately, the Classic uses an elastic cord around the top that is adjusted in the back. In order to get it snug on my heel, the cord began to bind over my toes and made it difficult to walk more than 30 minutes. There was also a seam sticking out too far inside and rubbed a blister on the ball of my foot. I have a few types of Vibrams and have hever had that trouble.
