I’m sorry butIcare more about my health than the accepted fashion.Igotapair of vibrams last year andILOVE THEM! My back and legs used to get sore after 30 minutes of brisk walking in conventional gym shoes and nowIcan literally go for HOURS in these things andIfeel energized! They allow your feet and the proper leg muscles to do what they were meant to and my back doesn’t tense up anymore trying to keep myself balanced and aligned.Ireally hate the media most of the time. Conventional wisdom is so full of crap it’s unbelievable. Wear toe shoes, eat primal, explore and play, try new things, be happy.
