FiveFinger frenzy

As you may or may not know, Mr. Yost is quite the fan of Vibram FiveFinger shoes. 

My wonderful friend - shout out to Kathi! - texted me yesterday about a shoe sale in town with kids' FiveFingers.

Today I went to check it out.  Did I come home with a pair?


I came home with TWO pair!

 Hudson's are still a little big.  I think they are the smallest size they make though, so he'll just have to grow into them.

 Stella was born to be a bare-foot baby.  I have a feeling they will get a lot of use. 

 A family of five fingers.  We thought it would be fun to buy a pair for me and tiny ones for Vivi.  Then we'd be the five FiveFinger family!

The kids know that Mr. Yost goes out for his nighttime "barefoot" runs.  They decided they better see what it was like for themselves.  Here they are testing them out in the snow.

Off they go!  They went a good couple of blocks...I'm hoping for a good night's sleep tonight!


  1. I'm so honored. I am so happy that it was not a crazy idea to think of you and your family when I saw tiny little color-coded five fingers on sale. This blog post makes me happy.

  2. What, you didn't buy a pair for yourself? They look so adorable on the kids and I hope that this helps the "I don't want to wear shoes" issue. Wish I could go running with them... or, well, walking! Love you. Candy
