I'm guessing that if you're good with wearing VFFs for for paintball (i.e. you are comfortable with the feel of the ground) but, you don't want or need individual toe compartments, these could be good for you. That is, unless the toe box doesn't let your toes spread far enough laterally. If the sole is a bit thicker then it might cut your sensitivity down some but, probably leagues ahead of any issue boot.

Belleville worked with vibram(5fingers and soles for most other boots), so I'm optimistic!
I probably will soon as well.

I need some good summer work boots with vents.
The original jungle boots were all about minimalist uppers simply due to heat and moisture associated with those environments so, so it only makes sense.
