I have sweaty feet. There, I said it. I know, it’s gross, but up until last July, it hasn’t been too much of an issue for me. However, it, along with the fact that my feet are prone to blistering, created a real problem for me when I made the switch to minimalist footwear. Make me run for more than … Read More

The past few days have been unseasonably warm in Wisconsin, and it looks like the warm temperatures are here to stay, at least for the remainder of the most recent 10-day-forecast.

Minimalist Shoes

Over the last few weeks, we have encountered a few items that I thought were worth mentioning.  More specifically, shoes–some of which we have plans to review, others that we were only able to get a short period of time with, but would love to get our hands on for a more thorough review in the future.  I’m not sure … Read More

It’s been a while since our last Vibram Transition post.
