My Vibrams are so comfy!

Friday, May 13, 2011

I've been wanting to buy these Vibrams for quite a while now. I like being barefoot or in sandals, flip flops and the like (next best to being barefoot) and I think shoes are confining! Growing up in Hawaii had us running around barefoot a lot of the time. Plus my feet are flat so I haven't *always* found really really comfy shoes. I received a gift card to this shoe store for Mother's Day (at my suggestion when asked for ideas for a gift) so yesterday I bought a pair of Vibram KSO TrekSport and used them to work out in today. I did Turbo Fire HIIT 15 and Fire 45 EZ. I knew they were going to feel different as they don't have much support and/or that my feet might hurt becos of the difference in shoes and that it would take a period of adjustment. Well, they feel awesome and was so comfy! I did hurt for part of my workout, but it's nothing that was unbearable and I'm sure it will improve with time. I will see how it goes for the next few workouts - I'm optimistic. So far, A+.

Here are my "ninja" shoes (as my daughter calls them!).

    I am still wearing these to exercise in.....not every day, and more on cardio days than ST days. They are still comfortable and I have no pain.

    Just thought I should update for once! emoticon

    Hi. I'm back, kinda. I, too, have vibrams - Makulewahine's grandkids call them my "frog feet." (They are green and white.) I've had them for about a year. No break-in period. They fit my luau feet. I love them! If I HAVE to wear something on my feet, it's either slippers or these. I've been told they are also better for your balance. Makes sense to me. I'm a lot more stable barefoot than in shoes.

    I was MIA for awhile when I got sick. My doctor said it was bad bronchitis. I felt bad that I stayed in bed for so long, but I noticed the other day that he had written down that I had the TWO MONTH flu. I don 't feel so guilty now.

    And all is better now. I'm well and smiling.

    p.s. I'm jealous; yours are prettier than mine.

    I have been wondering about those shoes...whether or not they feel really weird? Thanks for the review!

    Those look TOTALLY comfy (like no shoes at all), let me know in a couple months if you still like them, I might need to invest

    Nice. I still wouldn't be caught dead in those. I'm beginning to see them all over Cali. I even saw this dude playing tennis in it. Just weird for me. It's the conservative side of me I guess.
