Hi all. I am looking to buy my first pair of five fingers. I am not a runner but I've always been a barefooter. I love my Nike memory foam flip flops if I have to wear anything. I hate tennis shoes and always have. My hubby played/coached sports and thought it was tennis shoes or nothing. I would prefer barefoot but not very practical in the winter. I own my own business so can pretty much dress however I choose.
I am weighing the KSO vs the Flow for winter. I don't much like socks. I think last year I wore Crocks all winter and the year before that a pair of aqua Merrills. Heck, I didn't even wear a coat last year, just long sleeves. I am in the Arkansas/Missouri Ozarks near Branson so it's doesn't get as cold as it does up north but everyone is expecting a very bad winter here. Whatever I get, I want black. I wear a lot of black. I was wondering if the Flow would be better if I didn't want to have to use socks. But then on the milder days was wondering how hot my feet would get? Any insight would be great. Also, do you have to wash the Flows more than the KSOs for the smell I've read about?
About me, I am a web designer. I lost my husband/best friend (at to young of an age) to cancer last year and it has been harder than I ever dreamed. Because of this, I don't care much about anything anymore. I'm a bit of an eccentric, at least other people tend to think so. I'm a Christian. Oh, and in person, somewhat of an introvert if given the choice. My business makes it difficult to stay a hermit as I would like to. Hubby was definitely the people person. Online however, I like to make new friends.
That's it about me. Thanks for any advice you can give me.
