These shoes are all the rage, for athletes, and because of that have become a fad of sorts. If you buy them just for the ship, then I would say not worth it. But as an owner of some, and an athlete, I will tell you the tremendous advantage that I have gained in my feet strength. Unfortunately with shoes, we weaken our feet and we forget that when we were kids and we ran around barefooted, it was natural and we had strong feet and toes. Trust me, run in these shoes for a little while, and you will realize how weak your toes are. Anyway, these are great shoes on and off ship, plus when you dive in (or fall ) they can get wet and are awesome in the water. But as with all shoes, they have that nasty tendency to get smelly fast. Vibram has addressed that and created socks for it.
Hope this helps.
