  •  Hello! (7+ / 0-)

    I do have those toe'd shoes.  They're ok to walk in, but I don't run anyway, so not sure if they are good there.  I like shoes and sandals.  Guess I am the ultimate tenderfoot - everything I step on can hurt!  I've told my husband that he married the princess from "princess and the pea."  I can feel anything that is on the sheets or under them!  

    I just did my first post-chemo event - the Color Me Rad 5K!  Runners/walkers are blasted with color powder and spritzed with color as they make their way along the course.  Good way to ruin a white t-shirt!

    •  I assume you find them comfortable then? (7+ / 0-)

      I just bought some yoga toe socks, so I guess I'll find out soon myself. My feet are pretty tough, though.
      Feet! I used to dislike mine intensely until I studied karate. Working out barefoot for many years did give me a much greater appreciation for how strong our feet have to be.
      The 5K sounds like a lot of fun! My older daughter has started training to do one around here, sometime this summer. She HATES to run, so I'll have to tell her that people do complete the event walking the whole way. I guess that makes your clothing a lot more colorful.

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.

      •  I wear barefoot shoes (Vibrams) a lot but not (4+ / 0-)

        with the toes in them. I ordered some and after they arrived I remembered something I hadn't thought of since I was about 8 years old. I have webbed toes.

        I think they are very comfortable (my regular Vibrams without toes).

        And while I think perhaps we were meant to run or walk barefoot I also think we were meant to walk on dirt, grass and sand. Not concrete, asphalt, or wood floors.

        So.... whatever works, works.

        Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.
