The above photos are of “Piz” showing off his black KSO Vibram fivefingers on his two week vacation in Canada. And based on what Piz had to say about the trip, it sounds like his KSOs were a big hit:
Just returned from 2 week vacation in Canada and my first experience with VFFs…..I have to say that they are the funnest, most versatile and conversation-starting “shoes” I’ve ever worn! Whether it was hiking Niagara Falls, walking thru Old Montreal or trekking the Bay of Fundy, my VFFs were perfectly suited for whatever I wanted to do. After the initial adjustment/feeling of not wearing traditional shoes, I sat back and smiled as tourists/family/friends did the double-take and asked me what I was wearing. Looking forward to the new Vibram catalog and Christmas or birthday. I’m SOLD on my Five Fingers. Thanks guys…..
There are a lot of good reasons to wear fivefingers — the ones most focused upon revolve around the health benefits and comfort. However, the more I wear mine, the more I love how they are simply great conversation-starters.
