Vibram Five Fingers - Day Two - God's Shoes?

Well, today was day 3 of wearing & day 2 of running in the new Vibram Five Finger KSO's.  I have to say, I felt much better in them today.  I didn't feel the jarring sensation as much today while running downhill.  I noticed my stride seemed shorter, but my turnover was quicker.  I actually ran 25 seconds faster today than I did yesterday on the same 1 mile route with what seemed like the same effort.

Getting them on is much easier now too.  The first time was like trying to put gloves on a toddler.  Our feet are used to "mitten" like shoes....just one big open space.  Trying to get your toes into the little pockets was a bit tricky at first, but today was pretty quick.

I also realized that these "five finger" shoes oddly seemed familiar, but I couldn't place it.  Then it came to me.  Here's hoping Ed O'Neill gets a cut of every pair made.
