Tip-toeing into Minimalist Footwear (Day 7)

As a reward for all of my “hard work” yesterday, I decided I needed to spend a little time at the beach today.  I wore the fivefingers from the car to the beach and walked along the beach for a little while to see what these shoes felt like on the sand.  It’s pretty close to being barefoot, however, my toes wouldn’t grip into the sand the way I am used to, and I really like the feeling of the sand between my toes.  I guess if you were at a beach with a rough surface (especially under the water) these shoes would be helpful.  Overall, there is not too much of use in wearing a shoe that is trying to simulate a barefoot experience when you could just as easily not wear shoes…
