Rusty was lucky enough to score some Vibram Five Fingers Speeds while in Germany. He is now in Bahrain and sent us this story:
On October 29th, 2010 our team of 16 from ISA Fire Dept ran in the Bahrain Relay Marathon
. I'm deployed to Bahrain. Our team got 32nd out 164 teams. Our team was made up of 16 Firefighters at ISA Air Base
. The Speeds did awesome. I love them. I've been using them for the last 5 months here at my deployment everyday for running and working out. Pretty much everywhere I go when people see them they want to know what they are and how I like them. And to tell you the truth, I love them so much because they are the Europe edition and no one has them and they draw a lot of attention due to the fact they have laces! I feel so lucky to have been stationed in Germany at the time they came out. And when I get back to Germany, I will buy another pair of them if I can get a hold of them.
Thanks for the story Rusty! Now if we can just convince Vibram to sell Speeds in the U.S.
