Today, I decided I would pay a visit to a local outdoor/camping supply store to try on a pair of running shoes that I have had my eye on for  some time. The box they come in looks quite normal, but the shoes that come in them are anything but normal.

Tah Dah! Pretty cool huh? These shoes have separate compartments for each toe, and are actually really comfortable. They are meant to give you good posture when running, and to give your feet the flexibility they have when barefoot. They fit your feet like gloves do on your hands, which certainly feels strange at first. After you get used to them you never want to take them off because of the comfort. Besides that they look pretty awesome!

Here’s a couple more pictures of them…

However cool they look or how great they feel on, there is one challenge, and that is to get them on your feet. As you can imagine these things are a nightmare to get to fit the first time you try them on. Your pinkie toe does not want to be forced away from the neighboring area of your foot, causing you to have to wiggle it in to its spot. After a while it starts to get easier as your pinkie toe gets accustomed to being in its own separate area. If you’re looking to buy a pair, I strongly recommend trying them on first.

While at the camping store I thought it would be nice to buy a jacket so…

I decided to treat myself to a brand new banana colored North Face.

Until next time…

  1. My boyfriend is a fan of vibrams! I myself can’t swallow the fact that it looks like hobbit feet… :p But comfort is best, and it feels like you’re running with nothing on!
