"Fans often tire of the constant looks and questions from strangers, but having a conversation piece on your feet is a great way to meet new people — and spread the good word about freeing your feet a la Vibram Five Fingers."

Absolutely agree. I'm not the kind of guy that enjoys initiating conversations with random strangers. But these shoes bring people to me! I don't mind it at all. It's become rather normal. Whether it's at Chickfil-A, the movie theater, Whole or Foods Market, I get approached all the time.

The irony is i NEVER get approached at the office. It's a massive complex of offices. I walk by dozens of people every day. And they all try to act like they don't notice. Funny, and a little sad.

The all black get-up definitely attracts attention since people are usually expecting to see some big white / grey running shoes attached to your feet.

I love it when people ask me about my VFF's! I can always tell when people are looking at me and commenting but are to shy to come ask me about them. I've never approached any of those people to strike up a conversation but I will admit that I would like to. Do you think it would be appropriate to approach those people or let them be? Its definitely more-so a question of how you go about it but any general opinion or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Alexander - you can always pick up a foot and wave at them - that seems to break the ice pretty well. *laughs*

WEIRD! i was linked to this site from reddit in reference to the new VFF shoe release and low and behold i see somebody running in VFFs in my hometown. We're moving back to cary soon and i was wondering which VFF would be good for the terrain there and i guess this answers my question
