you posted when you wanted to and didn’t when you didn’t have anything to say? you sat around and read blogs and commented for hours on end? you never heard from a company with a cool trip or a fabulous produce to review (but didn’t have to write about it)? you reveled in your comments? you...
Inspired by this book and this post and my seemingly never-ending knee complaints, I decided to give barefoot running a try this morning. I have to tell you, it was thoroughly freeing — freeing from the knee pain I’ve been experiencing as well as just plain freeing in general. I mean, what could be more...
I’m always shocked when people tell me they hate to read their own writing, that they never go back and read a post once it’s published. One of my favorite things to do is to scroll back through my blog, perusing old posts and soaking up the photos. Often I find myself laughing out loud...

Oh no you di en’t! LOL!
Heehee! They feel GREAT.
I think they look kind of cute. Just think how many people will be looking at you as you run past them, ha.
What are you, 20??!! 🙂
Oh gosh I LOVE you.
Keep us posted on these. I am totally intrigued!
Wow – have you tried them yet? How do they feel?
YES! I ran in them this morning. They feel great.
I love them. I can’t wait to hear how they are working out for you.
I’ve never seen running shoes like this. Am I missing out on something new?
They’re for barefoot running. They protect your foot so you don’t get dirty or hurt, but they allow you to run as you would if you were barefoot, which is better for your joints and your running form. Google “barefoot running” and you will find a lot of info. 🙂
I am SO getting a pair!
Those are some crazy looking running shoes!
I remember when my friend first wore these to school so long ago. Everyone thought they were so awesome (and it was even high school). I always thought they were a great idea…but getting over the vanity thing is a liiiiiittle difficult.
Oh I want some!
Just curious – what sold you on the KSO as opposed to the Classic?
I’m continuing to do research and found this great website:

They were the only style they carried at the store. That’s also why I got black — they were the only color they carry. THey said they are selling so well that they will be carrying a larger variety of colors and styles this fall, so that’s fun. If it turns out that I really love them, I will probably get another pair.
Awesome. Are you loving them already? I may need a pair…
My uncle and brother both have these and wear them ALL the time. Not just for running. I get that they are useful for running, but the guys in my family are just silly. 😉 Hope they make your running a fabulous experience. Bet you’ll get more than a few looks while you’re out there pounding the pavement! 🙂
I don’t run, but for some reason I could see me wearing these ALL the time haha, I’d probably get made fun of but they just look SO comfortable. Question, they look like they are made of that breatheable material? I have some Nike’s made out of that, which is nice, but run through some wet grass and your feet are soaked, that’d be my only concern?
This morning I ran a bit in the grass, and they didn’t feel particularly wet – not as wet as when I run in my Brooks running sneakers.
And you posted a picture! Awesome.
Tell me. Are they hard to get on? I think mine might be too small because I have to *struggle* to get them on and then they feel too tight around the top of my foot. It could be my crazy high arch…
My guess is, they are fine. The guy at the store warned me that they would be hard to get on. Mine weren’t, but I have flat, narrow feet, and shoes are often too roomy. He was AMAZED at how easily mine went on. If you have high arches, that’s why.
He said the big toe and maybe even the second toe can and probably should touch the end of the shoe. The first pair I tried on, all of my toes touched, and I felt a bit cramped. With the next size up, the pair I got (size 40 and I’m usually an eight) the big toe sort of touches but the rest don’t. I don’t feel cramped, but neither are my toes far enough back to get caught on the rubber part.
Maybe you will start a whole new trend for mummy bloggers – and we can all PRETEND we wear them too, without actually having too!
You’re friggin’ adorable!
I’ve been such a scaredy cat to try these after I saw them in my niece’s shoe shop in Florida. A lot of the runners there wear them and they are supposed to be great to run on the beach too. Keep me posted on how they are when you are running because I may just have to cave too! Thanks for always inspiring.
So… do you run in them every time you run? Do you switch out with “regular” sneakers? Are you hooked??
