With regard the FFs, there are other options if you never feel comfortable in them. I wear the vivobarefoot shoes, but there are also lemings, Adams, NB minimus, Zockwas, etc.
thanks. I wore them for a few hours today to try and break them in. The right one feels really good, the left one still feels pretty tight on the big toe. I noted to the sales person that they were pretty tight when I tried them, she said they are supposed to be very snug and will stretch out. I did try on the next size up and they were too lose.
