Recent news

I recently bought (and sadly had to return) a pair of Vibram's Five Finger shoes. They are the coolest things in the world. Who knew going barefoot was so good? I've always loved and been drawn to going barefoot ever since I was a kid. But going into the military they fit us for shoes that "would help us when we ran" and honestly I've had more aches and pains in the past three years than I ever did in high school playing soccer. I had to return my FF's because they were a tad to small for my feet and hurt my toes. I won't give up. I WANT A PAIR but the store I went to has to order the size I need. People seem to have gone on a frenzy here buying those shoes. Its crazy. Have no fear. I will get them. I plan to hike, kayak, run, walk, shop, swim, climb things, and much more in these bad boys. It makes me all giddy inside to know that the pains in my knees and shins are caused by shoes and I can correct years of bad habits from merely walking barefoot or in FFs shoes. My feet will be singing praises to the shoe king and the angels will be singing hallelujah! hallelujah! hallelujah hallelujah!! halleeeelujah! I bid thee fair well and good night.


  1. I absolutely adore my five finger shoes. I hope you can find a pair that fits. I love going barefoot, and there's nothing better than being able to go barefoot *without* stepping on sharp rocks, broken glass, etc. They're great for running too. My form is so much better when I run in them than in my regular shoes.

    1. I've bounded up mountain trails in my shoes. I love them as well. I actually bought some of the new ones, although I have to say my arches are a bit high and the shoes are tight on the top of my feet. Other than that I love them. I do as much as I can in my shoes.
