Question: Why Did You Make The Vibram FiveFingers Switch?

We're all here because we love our Vibram FiveFinger shoes, but we'd love to know why you made the switch from regular shoes to VFF's and how it has affected your life and lifestyle. Maybe because you just wanted to try something different or you needed to make the switch due to an injury - it doesn't matter - just tell us your story so we can see how well FiveFingers have affected its wearers and to help inspire others and fellow-VFF'ers. Feel free to add images in your comment/post and comment on other posts, too!

FiveFingers in Tobermory, Ontario

Small town, fresh air, cold refreshing water, and the undisturbed wilderness. What more could you ask for? Tobermory is also 'Canada's Scuba Capital' and has the end of the popular Bruce Trail.
