Default vibram five fingers (5 fingers)

anyone out there use these? Vibram FiveFingers KSO Multisport Water Shoes - Men's at REI.com

other than the fact that the looks are hard to get used to, they look like they'd fit the bill for summer wet-wading. i have some full-size orvis wading boots that i wear w/ neoprene socks, but man, at size 15 they're a beast to pack and lug around- i need a separate bag just for my wading boots.

this is not mention the fact that the felt is losing traction and more gear than i care to admit has made it's own way down the river as i slosh about trying to find my maui jim's and sage rod before i lose them too!

they seem like they'd be slim-fitting and compact (which i'd like), and give me a MUCH better feel of what i'm stepping on, unlike the super thick neoprene socks and giganto-wading boots.

i'm looking for feedback from people who have/do actually use these! any help would be greatly appreciated.
