You think barefoot running represents the most natural way to run, which is why you run barefoot or close-to-barefoot as with Vibram Five Fingers or other “barefoot running shoes.”

You want to spread the word about foot freedom! And you want to do so by merely sticking out your chest!

You just want to support BirthdayShoes. You can alternatively support the site by donating and getting a sticker!

BirthdayShoes Fans in Free Your Feet Tees!

Note the first two photos are me (Justin) and I’m wearing a Large. The second photo is Mrs. BirthdayShoes in a Large women’s (out of stock, but the size is very similar to men’s small with slightly shorter sleeves on the men’s). After that is Josue of My Achilles Rupture. If you get a shirt, feel free to email me a pic of you in the Tee with your VFFs and I’ll post it here!

* I’m sincerely sorry to all the readers outside the U.S.; please understand that this is just a logistical nightmare as it is. If I can figure out a good way to ship internationally that doesn’t require me running to the post office every day, I will!

I have a question about the new t-shirts. I want one in women’s…but I would like to know what “women’s” means….is it a tiny tee? A slightly more “athletic” shaped tee? Is there any way you can show me a picture of it on a woman? It’s hard to tell what size to get.

Thanks a lot!

Might have to grab one of these to wear to the local Parkruns. I already get enough states of hate off the hardcore club runners when I’m running about in my Fives, might as well flaunt it!

Love the picture on the back so much it’s now the background on my iPhone!,%2016%2012%2013.jpg“>background on my iPhone

If Justin’s happy for me to do it I’ll post a link to the resized/formatted image on the forums for others to use.

Yeah Dan be great to have these for parkrun to go with the VFF shame they aren’t available in the UK at this time but deffo be interested in the tech version.

Bought 2..Thanks for printing on AA, I love the fit, I really don’t wear anything not printed on AA, and it would be a shame not to have one of these!

Nice shirt design. I would love to buy one but my enviro friendly persuasion has me restricting my purchase of cotton to organic only (25% of the pesticides are used to grow cotton). Any chance of getting a batch of organic cotton or bamboo, hemp etc. tees? I think I am in good company as many of us foot freedom are earth stewards who would pay a few dollars more for a cleaner fabric. Am I right?

wow awesome shirt!!!! as far as the tech stuff and organic this, remember this is the FIRST edition. I’m sure there will be more options for the next print!!! Show some love and get a shirt

Lame, can’t you just buy a bunch of the international first class bags and then mail them through a post box? Maybe you should put this on cafepress or something similar to take logistics out of the equation.

Alright… mine is ordered.

Cheers to Luke for the design. I really like it! Also thanks for putting in a sticker… very appreciated.

Ordered! Can’t wait for it to arrive. 🙂

As for the people popping off about organic cotton, logistics, misc. wish list options…SERIOUSLY?! What’s wrong with you? Take your self-entitled selves to your own site, commission a design, offshore your logistics and sell your own tees! Sheesh, Justin does an incredible job with this site and the tees/stickers are icing on the cake. Enjoy the cake and be quiet!

I’d be interested in a moisture wicking version L/S would be fun. I tried to follow your link and fill out appropriate info, but kept getting cycled with fill out ‘requied’ info when all required info was given. Anyway, count me in:)

I received my FYF T on Tuesday. Awesome!
I’m headed out to reward my feet with the new shirt right now. Thanks Justin!

I received my shirt yesterday! You are correct about the sizing being a little small. Never fear my Women’s Large is not too tight! I’m wearing it today at work 🙂

What a great idea!

Received the shirt two days after ordering (I live in KS). Fit is great…thanks again for printing on American Apparel.

I would really like to get a shirt, but I’m concerned about the size. You said your wife is wearing a large, but she looks tiny! Does she normally wear a large??
Also, do the women’s shirts’ size match the American Apparel sizing chart for women??

Are you planning to get anymore women’s large or extra large in soon? I would love to get one!

I’d really like to order a shirt, but I’m a bit unsure about the sizing. You don’t look very big, yet you’re wearing a large. Do they run small? I usually wear a medium in t-shirts, so should I order a large? I’ve never worn American Apparel clothing before so I’m clueless.

Love the site! Thanks from a fellow Georgian!

@ Justin,

Thanks for updating the sizing availability. I just ordered mine. Better late than never.
