"They found, to their surprise, that the impact on the knees was 12 percent less when people walked barefoot than it was when people wore the padded shoes."You Walk Wrong", New York Magazine, April 2008.

I've tried on different types of Vibram Five Fingers shoes but I couldn't get both of my feet in. I get frustrated because I feel I'm being discriminated against because I have "deformed toes". I have Morton's toes.

But my Morton's toe is not what is stopping me from owning Vibram Five Fingers shoes. It's the overlapping toes (the last two) on my left foot.

I love them! My feet feel so much happier. I also bought five toes socks. I actually feel barefoot walking in them. Right now, they have upgraded these shoes with better design and colors; for example:

Unless Vibram Five Fingers will create its new Four Fingers, I'll be with Fila all the way. The next dream barefoot shoes I want to own:

I've created my first 2012 resolution: replace shoes with barefoot shoes. And the shoes I have, I pledge to donate them to people who have no shoes!
