Yesterday we went Christmas shopping to stock up on groceries, pay some bills and so on.  I hate the local malls, they all have concrete floors and not matter what shoes I wear by about 15 minutes I am in agony, my arches ache and sting and my ankles hurt.  And today my back is sore.

So, today, as my Christmas present to myself, I ordered a pair of Vibram FiveFingers (http://www.vibramfivefingers.it/eng/default.aspx) classic shoes from the Brisbane online shop http://www.vibramfivefingersbrisbane.com/.  I’e seen them discussed on Mark’s Primal Forum so see how I go.  I have worn inserts to correct my pronation sine I had my Achilles tendon injuries and surgery, and have never gone barefoot since then, but I have been trying it round the house and will use the new shoes for this.  It is supposed to help strengthen the muscles.  I’ll report back!
