Today I picked up from my Washington mailbox my new Vibram Fivefingers. I got them off ebay so I was hoping the size was right. They measure a little different than normal shoes. You have to stand against a wall and stand on a ruler measuring the distance from the wall to the end of your longest toe. It wasn't my first choice of colour but for $50 U.S. with free shipping ($80 + tax up there) I couldn't really be too picky.
I wore them around the house for a couple hours then walked to school to get the kids. Some of the other kids there laughed at them thinking they looked pretty weird but I knew they were actually jealous. They'll be wearing them in a few weeks, you watch. Anyways, I thought they might be a bit tight in the toes but they seem good. I even ran a little bit and they felt okay. The plan is to walk in them for a while then try some light trail or grass running.
