Vlog: Finger Shoes!
In downtown St. Pete, I found them at a place called In Search of Balance. It's a great little shop owned by two runners. It's on 3rd Ave North really close to Beach Drive, right behind Parkshore Grill. I love supporting local shop owners, and they were extremely knowledgeable about the shoes. They recommended Bikila for me. I chose the Bikila LS because I liked the drawstring better than the Velcro strap.
|After trying on a few pairs, I found the ones that were just right for me.|
They do feel a little weird at first. And they are difficult to get on because they are so snug and my toes don't know where to go without help.
Ringo and Lance are checking them out to make sure they are okay. I think they approve.
I'm really excited that I can still use my Nike+ sensor. I wasn't sure because there are no shoelaces, but as you can see, I found a way to make it work.
I did my first jog and it was strange. It really felt like I was barefoot, and also I could tell my leg and foot muscles were working harder than usual.
The vlog is a little bouncy during my half mile jog.
The verdict: I like them.
Before now, I talked to quite a few people who wear these shoes and love them. Thanks, friends, for all the advice (Nathan and Big and Vivian and I'm sure there are others).
Hubby and my friend, Carrie, are now thinking of trying them out. I say go for it!
