How cool is this girl? She recently ran a race in Germany sporting KSO Kids Vibram Five Fingers! Check it out:
Apparently, prior to picking up her Kids KSOs, Skye was running in New Balances. In her mom Toni’s words, Skye “really loves the vibrams.” And just in case you’re wondering, the “Kids Run marathon” isn’t 26.2 miles. These races start at a half mile and go up to a 5K. Skye ran the mile this year and will get to run two miles next year.
I asked Toni to share a bit more about how Skye and the family got into toe shoes and what she’s been doing in them since the race. Here’s what she had to say:
After running the in the American Kids Run she has become addicted to her Vibrams. She wears them everywhere! She even tried to wear them to ballet. She loves that they can be thrown in the washing machine. Skye loves to hike in her vibrams. She says that she climbs better and run faster in them. As a parent I was impressed that after a couple hours of wearing them they had molded to her feet and she was able to get them on by herself with ease. These shoes are great because they are so durable. So glad that vibrams could make her first run a success.
THIS FAMILY LOVES VIBRAMS!!!!!!!!
This kinda thing gets me really excited about VFFs — it’s awesome that kids have a choice in footwear that is not only fun to wear, but incredibly functional.
Now if only they were cheaper!
Thanks for sharing Toni and good luck on your future running, dancing, and play, Skye!
