What is a good email for Vibram? I've used the send a comment or question thing on the vibramfivefingers.com site and never get a response. I would like a card to hand out. I just had a long talk with someone I know asking me all about them.

I'm in Canada and got them. They will make sure to get some to you. If you go to the contact section on Vibram's site for whatever country you live in, and ask for ambassador cards, they will get back to you relatively fast.

They sent me some in Canada, and I hand them out all the time.
What about those of us on (or on an island just off) a different continent to you?

In my case I Googled Vibram US and filled the "contact us" form out and they got back to me today. So it looks like I'll have cards in the mail soon!
Curious, what island?

Could be Ireland, or one of the Isles (Isle of Mann and White come to mind). Now that I look at his Profile I see it lists the U.K.
Is there a way to have our location show up in the bit next to messages? It would be interesting and handy (in the case of VFFs for sale). Just a thought.
I can see some confusion. Normally I could go to a worldwide site and do the "select your country or region" to get the site aimed at me. Not sure about the U.K. site. I did find this:
http://www.vibram.com/index.php/us/CONTACT-US/Contacts
Which at least has some international contacts. Googling Vibram UK seems to come up with what appear to be stores and not an official site.

Indeed. It's a common mistake that people from the other side of the Pond make.

The island is Great Britain, and that island is split into England, Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland, though part of the United Kingdom (but some of its residents would say it should be otherwise), is in the British Isles, but on the island of Ireland. It should go without saying that Ireland (the bits of the island of Ireland that aren't in Northern Ireland) is a separate country, yet it also contains the northernmost point of the island of Ireland. The Isle of Man is part of the British Isles but is not part of the UK. The Channel Islands, though British, are neither part of the UK nor part of the British Isles.

England is a country, as is Scotland. Wales is a principality. Northern Ireland is a province.

Confused? You should be.

I am well aware of all of that nowster, down to the last detail, I just thought I read some posts from you that led me to believe you were in England specifically.

Huh? I think it started as how to get the VFF ambassador cards outside of North America, an island was mentioned and then a short education of the island of Great Britain and surroundings geography.
Where are you seeing politics? Though I suppose there is the politics of bare footing/minimalist shoes.
Back to the topic, no comments today but a look from a lady while dining. I saw her look at the shoes, then me, then the shoes. Didn't say anything though.

No, it was geography, about which I was being a little playful.

The point is, Vibram USA sends out ambassador cards to people in USA and Canada who request them. Vibram Europe seems to be a lot less gregarious.

In the Midwest on business and went for a jog in a development behind where I'm staying. 

I heard a car then I hear....
"Hippie", Yo, Hippy" 
I turned to look and the guy goes yeah you, Hippie...  You seriously running barefoot....?
I just smiled, and yelled "nothin better" and continued on.....

I'm curious, when others hear Hippie what do you think?  I think long hair, twig thin, the dead, barefoot girls in summer dresses (Ah, Joss Stone)Cheesy, Vanagon's, etc.  Me, muscular build and my hair is tight 3/8" top 1/16" sides and cut every 2 weeks.  It's been that way since I gave up the mullet many many many years ago Grin.

You are correct.  I travel quite a bit, but in many parts of the mid-West, USA, hippie means that you are doing something different than "normal folk" in that area, and they don't like it.  Had a young adult (kid, really) tell me that "if it ain't country, it's crap!" To each his/her own.  Ignorance is bliss, but normal, I guess.  BTW- I have many friends that are real cowboys, so I mean no offense to anything country!  Smiley
