Comments Off on Vibram

As I have said earlier I was going to be buying a pair of the Vibram Five Finger KSO’s. Last friday I did just that.

This is the pair of shoes I bought from REI in Bloomington. The associate who helped me get a pair of these was incredibly knowledgeable and nice. I was very optimistic once I had them on at first, he had suggested a size smaller as the shoes do stretch, but they were a little tight. After I walked around in the smaller pair for a while I knew I needed my usual size. Its all in European sizes so its a little confusing, but the employees really know what they’re doing. I have gotten alot of weird looks for wearing these and alot of questions, but I like talking about them. I have yet to really run in them, but I’m very cautious as they alter your running style. To run in these shoes you must use “Fore foot” running, which means your run toe first, no heal contact. I’m looking forward to hiking with these, but for now I’m wearing them every other day, just so I can slowly adjust to them, and nothing to strenuous. Happy reading.
