I like shoes. Not as much as handbags, but I like them. The last pair I bought are kind of odd, so I have been looking at people’s feet to see who else has them. I was at the airport a couple of days ago, and so I continued my foot study there.
I was waiting at the gate …. I was too early as usual, so I got to see everyone arrive. They were all wearing boots or clumpy shoes and heavy coats. I was on my way to New York in flip flops and a t-shirt. Under-dressed? Much? Ahem. No odd shoes in sight.
Anywho, I digress …
The odd looking shoes are Vibram FiveFingers Classics. They are not odd, they are really odd! When I was trying them on at Zomblie Runner in Palo Alto, the guy warned me that they were a bit hard to get on. Somewhat of an understatement. I ended up with a really red face and a film of sweat, but I got them on. WooHoo!! Well worth the effort. He was also right that it gets easier. I love them. My next pair? The Sprint, in blue. Oh yes.
I know what you’re thinking. Did I take them to New York. Hell no! It rains. A lot. For days at a time.
