I've been lurking around this forum occasionally for quite some time, but the last few days i've been checking for updates daily and reading the older posts, so I figured it's time to make my hi-im-the-new-guy post. To do this I'll be using the standard questions oh-so many people use.
1. What styles VFFs do you currently have?
I've had a pair of taupe/clay colored Sprints for about a month now, and they rock harder every time I put them on.
2. How did you first hear about VFFs?
It was all very random and happend pretty fast. I was at work, delivering organic yogurt to a convenience store but I was early so I walked into the outdoor clothing store next door and saw a pair of classics. I thought they looked funny(in a good way) and after reading the little booklet that comes with them I wanted to buy them (they were on sale, and that helped a lot). But when I was looking for someone to tell me more about them I realized hadn't been early, and was now late so I ran out. I couldn't stop thinking about them but when I came back the next day I realized that the pair I saw was their only pair, and it was freakishly small. I ordered the Sprints two days later through Amazon.
3. How long have you had your VFFs?
It's been roughtly a month since they got here. I still haven't seen anyone else wearing them.
4. What do you enjoy doing in your VFFs?
Pretty much anything. I really loved how they feel when walking so I started to walk much more than I used to, those walks soon turned into running, and now I try to run through a local park as often as I can.
I'm also on a circus group and use my FF for acrobats and I recently began working on a Cyr wheel.
I'm not exactly circ du Soleil level yet, but here's a video of me , just so you get the idea. You can't really tell, but I'm wearing my sprints there.
I don't think I can use them all that much over the Icelandic winter (disgustingly cold and wet!) so I'll probably just clean them and use them as indoor training shoes for the circus and when we play unicycle handball
5. Do you have any funny stories about people seeing you in them?
About two weeks back, I went to an adult toy store with a friend of mine who wanted to buy something there (really, it was for a friend!
). When the guy who works there sees my shoes he looks at me and says as a joke; Wow man, I've never seen this fetish go that far!
But then he laughed and wanted to know more and where to get some.
6. Have you ever spurred anyone else to get VFFs?
Not yet, but I think that porn place guy was interested..
7. What is your job, and will they let you wear VFFs to work?
At the moment my only job is when I get a job as a freelance circus performer. Most of the time I can wear whatever I want, but I don't think I'll be wearing the FF much on stage because I don't want my feet to steal attention from whatever I'm doing
8. Anything else you'd like to share about yourself?
Hmm..? Just the basic. I'm from Iceland (whoohoo!) and I'm 19 years old. I'm in school, learning multimedia design and have no idea what I want to do "when I grow up". English is not my first language, so I would not be surprised if made some bad spelling errors in here.
I just remembered. Once upon a time I saw a post somewhere (I cant find it again) where some folks were talking about the youngest guy here being 21 years old. If that was true, it's not anymore
9. How'd you hear about birthdayshoes.com?
Goooogle! I was looking for more info on the shoes before I bought them, and ran into this place.
