I just had mine with Vibrams. Once i thought they were an affectation, now i’m hooked – there is no other kind of gym/running shoe i’m wearing again. Seriously, it’s been two days and the benefits are already mega-apparent. Walking feels amazing, your feet feel fantastic and there is a sense of being more connected to the ground beneath you. Posture? Effortlessly awesome. Vague knee pains during/after a work-out? Gone. Balance? Brilliant. I believe these things have profound spiritual benefits, i truly do.
Okay, they took me half an hour to get on. But that was only the first day. Then as i’m poncing down the street in them, this toddler starts screaming “Mummy, that lady has scary shoes on!” But well, one can take a bit of ridicule in the cause of getting one’s awesome on and i swear, these shoes (and their compatriots) are the future.
Emerging Problem: the more you wear functional footwear that your body just vibes off, the harder it is to wear “foot coffins” or heels that throw out your hard-one postural balance/structural integrity. They feel old-era. Or is this just my Saturn-Moon transit? Balance-obsessed lol.
