Training for a Vibram Marathon

Training for a Vibram Marathon

by Daniel Dessinger on Mar 19, 2010 3

My name is T and I’m a marathoner. So to be fair, I’ve only run one marathon. But as one of my best friends says, once a marathoner, always a marathoner. Last year, I ran 26.2 miles in stability running shoes. I wore a knee sleeve, an anti-inflammatory patch on my Achilles, and by the […]

Now Accepting Guest Bloggers

by Daniel Dessinger on Mar 15, 2010 0

I think it’s fairly obvious that the most well-intentioned version of “MyFivefingers.com” is a blog where you the Fivefinger Nation can share your thoughts, experiences, questions, and ideas with the world. Without running around the world and joining every athletic competition known to man, one person can’t really do VFFs justice. So I’m opening the […]

Where to Get Fivefingers Shoes in Dallas

Where to Get Fivefingers Shoes in Dallas

by Daniel Dessinger on Mar 13, 2010 1

Just because at least one of you has come to this site searching this question, I got my shoes at Luke’s Locker in Plano. There’s another Luke’s Locker in Colleyville, and probably one in Dallas. I’ve heard that REI and Sun & Ski Sports also carries some models, but I haven’t confirmed. If you locate […]

What to Do When Your Fivefingers Are Chick Repellent?

What to Do When Your Fivefingers Are Chick Repellent?

by Daniel Dessinger on Mar 11, 2010 94

I just got this amazing comment from Kalin on another post, and it spurred me to address in both comment and a new post. Basically, he loves the feel of his new Vibram Fivefingers, but his friend says they’re for “douchebags” and that girls will think he’s a loser. This poses the 3rd largest problem […]

Looking Forward to Some Dry Weather

Looking Forward to Some Dry Weather

by Daniel Dessinger on Mar 06, 2010 3

Anyone else looking forward to a break from rain, ice, and snow? For more than a week, I had to wear my traditional shoes because of all the rain and melting ice. I refuse to be Old Slushy Coldfoot, so it was time for the Diesels. Ugh. Nothing says foot pain like the wrong footwear. […]

Seriously Contemplating Terra Plana Aqua Shoes

by Daniel Dessinger on Feb 17, 2010 4

After this past week, when snow magically covered the face of DFW, I’ve gotten out of the habit of wearing my Fivefingers. I’m not about to endure cold wet soggy feet all day every day, so I’ve been switching back and forth between my old TOMS and my Diesels. They’re the closest things to flat […]

What Do YOU Want to Read About FiveFingers?

I’m a little sad, because I think I lost a major portion of my FiveFingers community when I relocated back to DanielthePoet.com. Of course, I don’t write about my shoes as often either, which is partly because each day is less of a discovery than it once was. FiveFingers have become normal in my life, […]

Consolidating My Blogs

by Daniel Dessinger on Oct 06, 2009 0

There’s too much to keep up with these days. I’m no less a fan of my Vibram FiveFingers, but as of today, I am consolidating blogs. My “daily” updates can be found at my now only personal site: DanielthePoet.com. It’s also my primary twitter profile name. Sorry if this in any way disappoints the awesome […]

Day 36: Going Sockless

Day 36: Going Sockless

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 22, 2009 8

I didn’t want to, but laundry schedules conflicted with work. I had to wear my black Classics without socks. It was more than a little embarrassing. Probably no other style or color faces this issue, but my black Classics with jeans look like toed ballet slippers. I’m just not okay with that. The owner of […]

Day 35: TOMS to the Rescue

Day 35: TOMS to the Rescue

by Daniel Dessinger on Sep 21, 2009 0

It took my Classics the better part of a day to dry after washing, so I made Sunday a TOMS day. My wife bought me my first pair of TOMS shoes in early August for my birthday. I wore them exclusively for a couple weeks before my feet started to ache a little bit. TOMS […]
