My New Choos

For years and years I've worn the New Balance 900 series shoes for anything athletic.  Now I have these minimalist shoes from NB for Crossfit and am beginning to wear them everywhere.  I find it a completely new way of dealing with one's feet, especially during very stressful use of those feet.  I had some doubts about whether I was walking (running? lifting?) into a whole new world of plantar fasciitis.  But so far, so good.  The feet are adapting to it, and seem glad to have become an active and important part of the rest of the body, instead of merely a cushioned link between the bottom of my legs and the earth.  (Shortly after I took this photo,  I ditched the white socks for black ones with tiny tops one can hardly see.  This is a relief to all my new young friends, but not as great as the relief they experienced the first day that I walked into the box with the new shoes on.)
