      I did not receive my order yet.

      Regarding grip dots: They do wear off relatively fast over time, yet the actual Dyneema® yarn in the fabric creates most of the abrasion resistance, so it is acceptable for basically all use cases. >> We are currently beta testing a re-applyable rubber spray (re-applyable on the customer side) - anyone interested in beta testing to add abrasion resistance and grip to his FYFs manually is very welcome to get in touch!

      Hey guys,
      Been wearing my FYFs consistently for gym use since receiving them (5-6 days a week for about 5 months-ish) and have been really liking them!

      My only problem is that the grip dots are wearing off and have mostly fallen off of the toes. Has anyone else had problems with this?

    5. John Bills on

      I live in Western Canada and I've received my FYF's. Thanks

      I have to say I find the product description and disclaimers on the products a little disconcerting. They warn about all that you shouldn't expect of the product and it kind of runs counter to campaign information.

      @Jerry, I received my pledge a while ago in HK. Make sure you email to their support email. They usually reply fast.

      I am happy to wear it for running on the beach and doing workout indoor. Pretty good.

      Query many times.
      However, there is no reply.
      Waiting for shipping from last year.
      Why, do not you answer?
      I suspect that it is a fraud.

      I have sent some emails about my FYF, it delayed, mayble lost - but patience (and non-harsh communication) resolved this problem. Now, I wear it daily, and it is very comfortable. (It was not that good at the beginning, but either the fabric shaped to my feet or my feet got used to it) Also, I have ordered another one on their site where they roughly estimate the delivery in 8 weeks. I have to assume that they are able to make it, able to deliver it, but the production capacity is low. I hope everyone gets theirs. Here is my video about the FYF (just to spend the time while yours arrives): https://www.youtube.com/watch…

    34. Ken Kempe on

      Okay, it took a while to receive the goods, the communication could be better, but the FYF is an awesome product and I am so glat, that I supported this project. Thank you so much for your efforts to deliver such an genius piece of work! I am totally satisfied and got many questions so far and made a lot of advertising for you. So please optimize your processes to not piss people off, when they order your FYF.

      Turn out that i forgot to complete my survey, so usually how long would it take for me to get my socks once i finished the survey, sorry for causing any inconvenience.

    36. Kristie Leung on

      I have yet received my items 3 weeks beyond the promised delivery date as noted in your email.
      I did send you email asking for the delivery status, waited for a week, received no response at all.
      You got my money, you let me wait, you forced me to send email to follow up...
      How about you simply deliver what you had promised?

      Just an update for all the poor souls who are posting on here asking where their FYFs are...I too waited and waited and waited...sent email after email after email asking about my order and it finally worked. After many emails and many complaints I finally received my FYFs in the mail last week. And they are awesome! All I can tell you is to keep emailing and bugging them and it will work out for you in the end. You can email them - support{at}barefootcompany{dot}ch

    42. Man Chan on

      why i have not received my item yet , where can i report that situation ??

    43. Katlyn Wilmeth on

      I have yet to receive my order or even any sort of notification that it has shipped or anything. I understood when the smalls were going to be on back order but that was months ago. It'd be really nice to have had ours before spring started now I'm not even hopeful I'll have them before summer kicks off. Please letc me know when I'll be receiving our order. We ordered 2 pairs at the very beginning of the kickstarter project.

      My pair is not wearable at all! Not comfortable although i have a normal shaped foot. Too tight, the toes do not fit into the socks... Useless :(

      Hi guys, I got my order in today and the build quality looks top notch. But I have one little problem, I could have sworn that I ordered a size small but was sent a size med? I am a female and a medium is far to big for my foot size. Is there anyway that I can get the size small that I requested? Please let me know I got them in today and wanted to take a run in them but can't because they are to big :(

    46. Kowin Tang on

      I am still waiting my order. I don't understand why my status became "received"?
      There is totally no response from creator since I first sent an email in 7-May-2016, how come?
