Top 5 Reasons NOT to Wear VFFs

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been wearing a rather unusual shoe called Vibram FiveFingers (VFFs). While there are lot of things I love about these shoes, there is a dark side to them as well. So as a public service, here’s the top 10 5 things you should consider before trying out VFFs!

  1. They’re so comfortable, you will dread wearing “real” shoes.
  2. Strangers will talk to you about your shoes.
  3. Psychologically, walking “barefoot” feels great… until you walk into a public restroom.
  4. Your posture and stride will improve and you’re likely to lose that back pain you love.
  5. You may be liable for injuries incurred when people do triple takes at your shoes.

So, remember, think before you VFF! 😉
