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.
