Is it possible to love shoes so much?

I got my first pair of barefoot shoes last week and couldn't be happier with them. I tried my old sneakers yesterday, and they were absolutely too small for the real size of my feet - with these wonderful Gobi shoes I feel so much more liberated!
When walking in the forest I can feel myself much more in connection with the ground and the Earth, i.e. walking feels terrific!
The shoes also look fantastic, so good points for that as well. Maybe they could be a tad wider for my Hobbit feet, but not necessarily.
I absolutely love this pair of shoes so much, I just want to wear them everywhere I go but at the same time I'm afraid that they'll wear out. :D

absolutely love vivobarefoot shoes.... my feet feel so free. I used to get a lot of knee problems and now with wearing the shoes i don't have any problems. As a Yoga Teacher I have noticed a difference in my practice as I feel stronger through my feet.

Nice shoe, large size

It´s a good feeling shoe bit size is large, I usually wear 40-41, should´ve bought 39 this time.
