I love my Vibram 5 Fingers. I also love Merrell Dash glove, pace glove and Bliss wool glove. As you see, I have gone a bit insane with my shopping. I still wear my Dansko clogs because they make me taller. I still love them dearly. If and when you do buy a pair of 5 fingers or other minimalist shoes, start by wearing them for brief amounts of time or you'll likely feel a lot of muscle soreness/pain.
Great job at making changes in your life.
