In the mailbag comes this Vibram Five Fingers KSO user review from Levi (forum member “Leaves“) who recently got married — Congratulations! — and went on to vacation in Cancun, Mexico. Here is what Levi had to say about traveling and sight-seeing Mexico in VFFs:
The wife and I were married January 9, 2010, and left that next day for Cancun, were we stayed at the Moon Palace Resort. Everywhere I went the VFF’s were a spectacle. In the market the merchants would yell, “Hey! I like your shoes!” At the resort people would quite frequently stop me to take pictures of my feet, ask about arch support and result in a brief discussion about barefoot, Vibram’s and my previous stress related injuries. Notice that the wife doesn’t have any on her feet … she does now. 🙂 We have been waiting since November on a black pair of KSO’s, 42W, to come in … no such luck, yet. So, she settled for the grey/purple, as it was the only available KSO or VFF in her size.
Glad to hear Linz has been hooked up with some VFFs! I like grey/purple KSO FiveFingers personally — tried to get my wife a pair, but she went for Classics instead.
Anyway, glad you’re spreading the word about Vibram’s barefoot alternative to the folks in Mexico! Thanks for sharing your VFF experience!
