I've been wanting to buy these Vibrams for quite a while now. I like being barefoot or in sandals, flip flops and the like (next best to being barefoot) and I think shoes are confining! Growing up in Hawaii had us running around barefoot a lot of the time. Plus my feet are flat so I haven't *always* found really really comfy shoes. I received a gift card to this shoe store for Mother's Day (at my suggestion when asked for ideas for a gift) so yesterday I bought a pair of Vibram KSO TrekSport and used them to work out in today. I did Turbo Fire HIIT 15 and Fire 45 EZ. I knew they were going to feel different as they don't have much support and/or that my feet might hurt becos of the difference in shoes and that it would take a period of adjustment. Well, they feel awesome and was so comfy! I did hurt for part of my workout, but it's nothing that was unbearable and I'm sure it will improve with time. I will see how it goes for the next few workouts - I'm optimistic. So far, A+.
Here are my "ninja" shoes (as my daughter calls them!).
