Day 1 with Five Fingers

Only wore my new Vibrams for an hour, but not to run in. Still having difficulty getting my toes to line up, especially the pinky toes. I tried playing Gran Turismo 5, so I could anticipate any challenges working the pedals of a real car while wearing them (I play using Logitech's Driving Force GT, which has a brake and gas pedal). I actually like they way they grip the pedal and help anchor the base.

In many ways, the Vibrams are like driving shoes, the latter being essentially a glorified sock with a thin rubber sole...but I am a little curious about such things as toe-heel driving (especially given that the toes work independently in the Five Fingers). The driving shoe may still have an edge.
