The shoe must go on

I’ve written a few time about Vibrams, but as I mentioned in The Great Oxymoron there are a number of other minimalist shoes positioned as the thing to wear when you are not able to go barefoot. I’m still trying to figure out what the whole barefoot thing means to me, but at this point, my focus is purely on running barefoot. The VFFs are in support of that end and they seem to be doing the job.

I’m not out out trying other shoes, but I am interested in a number of the shoe options that are more for people who want to maintain the feeling of the ground under their feet while walking around town. Birthday Shoes, a site that I thought was pretty dedicated to VFFs, just published a nice review of the Terra Plana Vivo Barefoot Aqua. I gotta admit they look and sound pretty cool and although they are pricy, Barefoot Shoes offers a promo code that knocks 30% off the price. That almost brings them into the range of my cheapskate standards. But given my running focus, I still think the next shoes I buy will be the VFF Bikilas when they are available in April.
