Yes, the dreaded day is upon us. The aftermath from yesterday’s run. I am such a wuss. But that’s okay! I’m just getting started! I woke up this morning, stood up, and OWWW! Pain! What is this strange sensation in my feet and legs? What is it? Oh, Doctor, tell me, am I going to […]
After a long day at work, I decided to give my Five Fingers another shot at the gym. I work them all day at work without socks for the first time. I’d been avoiding that, since you end up with stinky shoes that need to be washed when you don’t use the socks. But, like […]
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 […]
Well, it’s been a solid week now and no one at work is noticing my foot-shaped shoes. What is wrong with these people? Seriously? I expected them to stand out on Day 2, but then again, they are solid black. My next pair will be more noticeable (though not the camo-blue ones). I think I […]
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 […]
Surprise, surprise! No one at work is noticing my feet. Of course, I’m wearing the black Classics, which blend in with baggy jeans better than any of the other color styles. I just kept waiting for someone to stare at my feet and freak out. Mostly I was expecting someone to accuse me of wearing […]
I woke up this morning, and I REALLY didn’t want to put on my Five Fingers. I just wanted some plain old shoes. I wore my Flat soled Diesels to work today instead of my Five Fingers. Since everyone I’d read about gave their feet a break, I decided to do the same.
I noticed last night that my back was significantly achy all over. The kind of feeling you might have if you helped a neighbor move all their furniture into and out of a Uhaul truck. Today is no different. I ache. I’ve been leaning back all day long in my chair, but the ache is […]
Some people who wear Five Fingers get callouses and sore feet within half an hour. Not me. I’ve been wearing them all day and I haven’t hurt any more than I usually do. Oh, that reminds me. I need to update you on my existing foot pain and one of the key reasons why I […]
I did it! After a couple days of Web research, I took the plunge. Just after work today, I drove to the Luke’s Locker on Legacy Drive in Plano and tried on a pair of black Five Fingers Classics. I liked the Classics because they were the simplest and most attractive of the different styles.
