Because I like them

Introducing the Pierini DIET here

I’ve read several reviews the past couple months about the Vibram Five Fingers athletic shoes (maybe “feet gloves” is a more descriptive term). Just about every review I read was favorable, including the one written by Justin, my cyberspace fitness son just for fun, at his blog here: Justin's review of the Vibram FiveFingers at The Bodyweight Files.

About one week ago I sought out and found a store near my office that sold these athletic feet gloves. It took me longer to find the store as I approached the area where it is located than it did for me to try on a pair and make a “business decision” to buy them. While I didn’t time myself, I’m guessing that the elapsed time of walking into the store empty handed and walking out the door wearing my new Vibram FiveFingers KSO was a whopping ten minutes.

I joined the "off the beaten path athlete crowd" and bought a pair because I like them.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

I'll be anxious to hear what you think once you've had a chance to put them through their paces.

Charles, I have some initials observations but I'm going to park them until all the observations have been made - and then I'll share then.
