Vibram FiveFingers - Trial

Well I got my Vibram FiveFingers out on a trial (finally). Unfortunately I only had them out at the gym on the treadmill but they were fabulous.

I have go to say that my whole running mechanics went out the window. No more heal striking. I seem to run with more awareness; more upright. There is more thought to how your foot falls, etc.

I wore them in my travels out to Oman & thoroughly enjoyed them. I cannot wait to get them out into the "real rowld" on real running surfaces.

The whole Vibram FiveFinger's concept is totally "out of the box" & a pushing beyond conventional running wear boundaries.

Until next time.

Run on;

A couple of us at work have these, every once in a while we have "Toe Shoe Tuesdays"
