I everyone, I am looking for some shoes for work and casual that actually still look like shoes. I have Vibrams and some Luna sandles. But I need something more presentable when called for. Suggestions?
I use endomondo to track all my workouts. I run, swim, vault on horseback, do some bouldering and sometime ride a bike. So, it's easier for me to track all these acrivities. I find it usefull that you can track all kind of sports. When I run, I use a garmin watch so I also use garmin connect (a little double work in here)
Met my doctor the other day. She was in an informal meeting with a podologist and other physicians of various fields. I was barefoot. Their professional opinion : we were made to walk barefoot. Ite missa est.
Well my first experience of barefoot running was a bit more eventful than I hoped for.
Heat on the pavements was more painful than I expected, giving my 3 large blisters on my right foot. I then decided to walk home (after 15 minutes running) and stubbed my big toe which then started to bleed.
Oh well, got some interesting looks which kind of made up for the pain. Though it now really hurts to walk!
Next run might be on a day that's not quite so hot! And hopefully less eventful.
It's been a few days now since Vibram's "settlement heard round the minimalist-shoe world." I finally put down my thoughts a couple days back. I'm hopeful I captured the essence of why the settlement does (and does not) matter. But I'd like to hear your thoughts...
I don't know Brian -- it's a good question. I haven't interfaced with him in awhile but based on prior interactions, I'd guess he'd be very tight-lipped about it. He's been distancing himself (in many ways) from the shoe side of things for 2-3 years now.
