Reader Chris sent in photos snapped from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In them, Chris is sporting grey/green VFF KSOs.
In his email, Chris noted:
Hey cool! a whole site dedicated to my favorite footwear!
Here are some pics of me in the Outer Banks of NC shortly after getting my KSO's.
I love them! Tactile sensations and awareness are great, foot and ankle's are much strengthened. I had them recommended to me by a posture correction specialist. Also you leave really cool footprints.
After much resistance my wife now has a pair of sprints and she loves them. I have a pair of Sprints as well, mostly to wear around the house. I will get some of the Flows this fall.
Every time I wear them out I get lots of questions ... sometimes I feel like a spokesman for VFF.
I'm starting to feel like a Vibram spokesman, too!
I was curious as to how Chris persuaded his wife to pick up a pair, and here is what he said:
The tactics I used to convince my wife were
-it's like being bare foot without dirty feet
-it will help with your ankle pain from heels
-just get some to wear around the yard, I think this was the best one
I might have to try these strategies out on my wife — though I'm sure if she finally does acquiesce it will be because I buy her a pair!
Here's one more shot of Chris:
If you have photos of you in your birthday shoes, please send them in!
