Hello all!!

I am looking into getting into some VFFs and am excited to have found this site full of wonderful information. I have been interested in this unique form of footwear ever since I saw a guy wearing them in my Calculus II class this summer. I thought they look very strange, but after reading around and finding out the health benefits of actually wearing them, I too am interested in getting my very own pair of classics to start out with for some indoor track running, going to class in, and biking with. Soon I would like to replace my shoes with this footwear in almost every activity I do.

Hello. Given you mention classes and Vibrams, would you be in Austin? I'm originally from Austin, now in Houston. Which color classics are you considering?

I have some Sprints, and I have to say, running around the Hill Country in them, a lot of dirt gets in. I should have gone with KSOs, I think.

Thanks for the welcome guys. No, I am not in Austin, I am also not in Houston, lol. I am in between, I live in Brenham, but attend college at Texas A&M in College Station. I was thinking about some classics for the indoor track at the Rec Center at A&M, and some KSOs for outside use.
