a wee treat

This week I treated myself to a pair of these:

They are Vibram Five Fingers KSO. The idea behind them is that they mimic walking and running barefoot as much as possible whilst protecting your feet from grime and broken glass etc.

Yes, they look very odd.

Yes, they are actually quite tricky to put on.

And yes, they are actually very comfortable to wear.

I love to be barefoot as much as possible, and current thinking is that it's better for your foot to use all those bones and muscles as they were designed! Certainly a lot of the people that I have trained with swear by them ....


  1. So wait - do you wear them to train in or just when you are out and about?

  2. Hi Felicia

    Yes to both, in principle. So far I've worn them to kung fu class (but not to train in) and to drive in. They do take a bit of getting used to though.
