Hi, I'm Mike, and I had the wonderful fortune of winning the drawing that closed on the 14th of March. Here it is not two weeks later, and I have the shoes on my feet. First thing to be pleased about is how quickly the shoes arrive in the mail. Well, no. The first thing to be pleased about is the rapid communication I got making sure I was getting the right shoes and getting them sent. Great customer service! I see there is already a thread for reviews of the Sensori Venture sandals, but what I aim to do here is a little different. Part of the terms of the contest is to try the shoes for a couple weeks to a month and report and review them then. What I propose to do is to keep sort of a video log with continuing reports on You Tube, beginning with the following, for the unwrapping and first donning. I worry a little that I may not be the best guy to review these shoes. As to bare foot running, I am the least of dabblers. I only once did a running/walking mile, and only a slow trot down to the mailbox and back. These exercises are the most I have done in years, if not ever. I recently went, without exercise, from 373# to 185#, and suddenly found a lot more things possible, even with a disk bulging out suddenly into my spinal cord a year and a half ago. I am 46 years old, and even with the funky back in better shape than ever before. But I'm not really a runner. Still I will do what I can, and perhaps be able to give a little information that will help. Happy running!
