Ballet Shoes for Hippes

I had heard about these shoes from someone and thought they were cool. I told Tia, and wanted to try some on, but there was no one local with them. I'd have to drive to the Springs or Boulder to try them, and I had planned to. Someday.

A package showed up the other day for Tia, and we put it in the car as we headed out. We'd forgotten about it, and remembered late the next night when she mentioned she was looking for it. She ran downstairs, grabbed it and came back with the Vibram Five Fingers shoes; a pair for her and a pair for me.

I tried them on, and they felt weird to me. It says to wear them for an hour or two at a time as your body gets used to them. You need to build up some arch muscles and support yourself, especially for people that wear orthopedic inserts. Like me.

Kyle came in and saw them, and tried mine on. He didn't like them and called them ballet shoes or hippies, which I thought was funny.

I've been wearing them a bit, and they fit a little funny for me. I'm not sure how I feel, but I'm going to give them a chance for a few days around the house and see how I feel. They are low, and I always feel as though they might fall off, though I don't think they will.

Definitely a new experience.
