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! emoticon

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.

    Cool! Don't think my giant flat feet and XL bunion would fit in them. I would need ones that are shaped like flippers with arch support! Interested to know what a run feels like in them.

    Cool shoes! I think my nephew told me, he works at eastbay (shoes place) that they are really good for people who run on the balls/toes of their feet. I run like that! lol I am afraid to try them because I have heard of so many people hurting themselves while wearing them!!! OH and What about the P90X?

    Neat!! I remember Runner's World had an article recently about how to break them in properly; maybe you can Google it.

May they bring you many successful workouts!

    One of my favourite pairs ( I have a few....I drank the kool-aid 2 years ago). Enjoy them! I'm sure you've heard it sure to take it easy for the first while wearing them if you're used to more structured foot wear. emoticon
