Hi all,

I'm surprised no hoopers have ended up here - I do hoop dancing (with an adult sized and weighted hula hoop, but I hate using the word hula), and most of the hoop tribes (who can afford them) wear five fingers - most of us learn how to hoop barefoot, and we do that when we can, but my specific tribe is based in NYC, and I'm just not going barefoot in Central Park. Eww.

The hoop tribe I hang out with most is the Hoop Path, and we do blindfolded hooping, so you know how important it is to feel the ground and control the balance under those conditions!

Someone took a picture of all our five-fingered feet at the last Hoop Path retreat, I shall try and see if I can get a copy and post it - but that is why I bought mine.

Of course, I refuse to take them off until the weather gets cold (I have classics)- which is why I have a rubber/fabric separation now. Pout. hopefully the glue will fix it.

Barefoot (sorta) in NYC -

I do hoop dancing, as well. I love to hoop barefoot, because it's uncomfortable and more difficult is typical gym shoes.  However, no matter how hard we've tried we can't get rid of all the sticker burs in our backyard. So, vibrams would be great for that. Smiley
