More about Vibram

So i decided i should actually go around and see about actually trying on a pair of Vibrams before deciding between them and Merrell, and between getting a slightly larger size or getting a slightly smaller size and stretching the toe.

If i'm measuring myself right, i should be either a 41 or a 42, or possibly a 40 if i want to go by the big toe and then try to stretch the second toes.

So i went by the local farmer's market to get some food truck brunch (though the truck i really liked either canceled or left early) and then went by both REI and Sports Chalet.

REI had the style i wanted, though not in colors i really wanted, on clearance for $45-$55. Unfortunately they'd been on clearance for awhile, so they were out of everything under size 45, so i didn't have to decided if i was willing to get non-preferred color and save $40 or so.

Sports Chalet had a good color for $90 and a really ugly color for $50ish. They did have size 42, but not 41. I tried out the 42. They felt fine, however it seemed like there was still room left in all the toes. In theory, your longest toe is supposed to be just touching the end. So i guess i'll wait around awhile for them to get a 41 in stock so i can try that out, then decide what to do.
