Day 18: Someone at Work Finally Noticed

Day 18: Someone at Work Finally Noticed

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 03, 2009 2

I’ve been wearing my black Five Fingers Classics for 18 days now (think I wore regular flat-soled shoes once), and my coworkers finally noticed. In their defense, my baggy jeans touch the floor, so there’s only a little black visible most of the time. People just assume that you’re wearing regular shoes unless something draws […]

It’s Okay to Be Fi-curious

It’s Okay to Be Fi-curious

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 03, 2009 0

word of the day: “fi-curious” – a person interested in Vibram Five Fingers, but aren’t sure they’re ready to swing that way. Most people will be curious about the foot-shaped shoes they see every now and then, but the concept of walking without cushioned soles will turn most people off. I know this because we’re […]

Day 9: Taking a Day Off

Day 9: Taking a Day Off

by Daniel Dessinger on Aug 25, 2009 1

It’s been 8 days. My feet feel a little blistery, so I’m taking a day off from my VFF Classics. I’m putting on my Diesel Leroys again. They’re flat soled and not very cushioned, but they feel luxurious in comparison. Of course, that means I’m not getting the workout or proper posture either. I’m wondering […]

Day 7: Stinky Toe Socks Means Buy Another Pair

Day 7: Stinky Toe Socks Means Buy Another Pair

by Daniel Dessinger on Aug 23, 2009 2

I probably forgot to mention that I bought a pair of black toed socks when I bought my VFF Classics. They’re Injinji brand. The Luke’s Locker rep told me that some people prefer to wear socks because they keep the shoes from smelling bad as fast. Eventually, the shoes will have to be washed. You […]
