I go barefoot as much as possible in the summer months on grass, but I want to extend this to include other surfaces and possibly other seasons.
Does anyone have any honest advice on Vibram's five-finger shoes or similar barefoot simulation footwear? (I will not be running on concrete with them (I read Gillebean's post). I have heard of many people raving about them and read the official blog, but has anyone had any NEGATIVE experiences with them?
Could I tackle a mountain path (rocky) in them for instance?
Does it take long for your feet/body to adjust to having no sole and are there adjustment 'pains' involved?
Are they really worth it or would it actually be more economical to sew my own moccasins out of fine leather? Or should I just stick to my crocs??
Last question: What do people do in the colder months, has anyone come across an all weather boot (snow/rain/mud) or is it back to the sewing machine to make a fur lined moccasin, inuit-style?
