Good Morning BSF! Smiley

I have a bit of a task here, not being educated and all.

I'll start with this though, I have mild cerebral palsy on my left side, and crows feet. Good now that's out of the way.

I'm looking for a minimalist shoe that I can have as a multi-use/work shoe, everyday shoe that could get wet (swimming?) if possible. I was recently introduced to VFF and fell in love with the idea, tried them, and could not get the left foot to go into the toe slots, and I had a hard time adjusting to size differences. My right foot is a 12-12.5 US, and my left is a 10.5. When I was looking at VFF's, I was looking at the KSO Evo, which I ended up buying for my wife because she fell in love with them. I was hoping to find something similar to those, though it isn't necessary.

Does anyone have anything to teach me here? I need knowledge! Smiley

Thank you for all the help. Also, if possible, I'm looking at a 70-90 dollar shoe, same price approx. as VFF Evo's.

Thanks!

Jon

If you can't do the individual toes, it may be worth looking at the Altra Adam.  It's the same concept, but without toes.

These are another great option.  They are a slightly higher price point, $95.  They are very light and breathable and dry quickly when wet.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot and your left.
