    Out of stock online you mean? Cause there should be several places online that sells them. The hardest thing to do is get your size, as long as you have that you should be able to find them somewhere online.

    i bought a pair about a month ago to try with mountain climbing...they don't work very well for that all my holds on my foot would slip to much, and the crux was near impossible. So if your mountain climbing the vibram five fingers are not for you.

    yea, they prolly wont work as well as real climbing shoes, which are made for that exact application, but they are great for free running. Not to mention that they are great for water use, i wear mine in the surf so i dont get nailed by a stingray thats lounging around. Also they are great for rivers. Cause you can still swim with them on like you were barefoot.

    update, since seeing this thread i decided to give them another shot on the boulders out back. i soaked the shoe in oil to replinesh the rubber (common climbing trick), and the although the toes are very difficult to get used to, the shoes held much better on the holds and didn't flex much down the middle. I even tried some free climbing and they held a lot better not as good as the Mad Rock Frenzy Lace, but i might wear them for smaller grades as they don't hurt your feet as much.
