I must admit – I am lusting after something. My strong Baptist background causes me to cringe with guilt, but it doesn’t last long. The item that I desire so strongly is a pair of Vibram 5 Fingers shoes (affiliate link). The first time I saw a pair was at the Wrightsville Beach marathon. They fit your feet like socks, but are made with materials that allow you to run, hike, kayak, play without injury to your feet. They simulate being barefoot which is the most natural way to be. It is much healthier for you and helps keep your body in alignment so you have less risk of injury.
My preferred method of being is barefoot. I hate wearing shoes. I will take them off as soon as I can and if it’s possible not to wear them, I won’t. When I saw the Vibram 5 Fingers I was extremely interested. After hearing how much people love them, I can’t wait to get a pair. I’ve been reading up and the benefits of exercising barefoot and it just makes sense.
