Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that Santa was as good to you this year as he was to me!
One of the first gifts I opened this morning from my wonderful crazy husband was this pair of Vibram FiveFingers barefoot shoes?!? I honestly did not know what to make of these when I first opened the box. I looked at them and thought WTF is this? I mean, I was a kid in the 70′s and I remember those socks with toes that were appropriately adorned with rainbow stripes. Got the mental image now? Okay, let’s move on. I hated those socks. I tried to wear them and they were unbelievable uncomfortable.
I reminded myself how great my husband is at gifting and took the high road though and seem interested in these odd and unattractive ”shoes”. I put them on, struggling to get my little toe in the right slot. They fit pretty well. I walked next door to my cherished next door neighbor so I could share this weird Christmas morning experience. She opened the door and I said “Look what I got. I don’t know what to make of these”. We then realized that these shoes are pretty cool. They are unbelievably comfortable. They can be worn at any time. They would probably be great for yoga, climbing, river rafting, the beach….anywhere! I came back home and proclaimed that I would not be taking these shoes off today. I still have them on and it is the middle of the afternoon now. They are creepy and odd looking, I must admit. Everytime I look down I think my feet belong to a muppet or something.
Maybe my wonderful crazy husband was really on to something when he got me these. I checked the website www.vibramfivefingers.com and these puppies are pricey. Of course – Jason got the best deal on www.ebay.com. Seems that many people buy these online and then end up reselling them on ebay because they don’t fit right. I would recommend trying to buy these on ebay.
I must admit, these Vibram FiveFinger shoes fit like a glove!
Here’s hoping you get all you want this Christmas!
