New shoes for running & P90X
Sunday, February 26, 2012
I've been told that I drank from the toe-shoe koolaid. Hope it wasn't too sugary -- I'm trying to cut down!
I read about Vibram Five Fingers for the first time in 2009. Though curious, I wasn't really interested in trying them for myself. I don't like flip flops because separating my toes like that isn't comfortable. But since I know a few people who have them and absolutely love them, when I decided to get some new workout/running shoes, I had to give them a try. I have to admit, after having these on for about 10 minutes in the store today, it was almost like I didn't have shoes on. I couldn't believe it!
I wore them for about an hour this afternoon (with toe socks) and certainly need to "break them in" some. Not so much for the shoes, but for my feet! I will give them a short run on the treadmill tomorrow to see how that feels.
