Since I live in a sunny place, I probably spend more time in flip flops or go barefoot than the next guy/girl. I do work in an office and even though I kick off my shoes under my desk during the day, I'm starting to develop a small hatred towards shoes.
I've owned V. five fingers since Mark Sisson posted his first beach sprinting video almost 2 years ago I think. BUT.......since there is no store that carries them here in SW Florida (Sarasota being closest, but that's 2 hours north) I think I'm the only person locally that has a pair. When I wear them EVERYONE stares and many questions and comments ensue. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood. So these are a nice alternative.
I really like the Nike Free's. (Mark L. at Dadsrewrite has his eye on a pair and posted something on them). They are nice and light and feel really good compared to sneakers. They hold up well also. When they first came out about 4 years ago they had a type of mesh top that would rip, these are sturdier but have not changed otherwise. The heel on the shoe is deceiving. It's nothing like a spongy , big support, Nike running or cross trainer shoe. Go try a pair on next time you're out shopping. Do you own a pair? Do you like them?
First post not mentioning food in a long long time........food pics tomorrow ;-)
