After a complete week and a half of actually wearing my Vibram Five Fingers outside for my morning walks, I am happy to report that I am in love with them!!! Each morning I have walked about two miles in these glove like shoes. The main differences between these shoes compared to "regular" shoes is
I feel super light walking.
My step is lighter which puts noticeably less pressure on my RA knees and hips.
And the best news is that my feet don't hurt when I get home. Awesome!
