I’ll admit, I’ve worn my VFFs to the office on a more than a few occasions. My displeasure with conventional footwear started way before my entry into the world of minimalist footwear. Since my injury of 2006, I’ve had an ongoing struggle to find shoes that I could wear an entire day without having to pull them off mid-day. I battled with my feet’s preference to be without shoes as I’d been told to NEVER go barefoot due to my tendency towards plantar fasciitis. Now, years later, barefootin’ and minimalist-type footwear is all that feels natural.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to not draw attention to yourself when you wear VFFs to work — even with the dark leather of the Treks. On the other hand, walking around in socks (as I often do) isn’t exactly profession now, is it?
