Our recent Q & A with September's featured Ambassador, Andy McDermott!
Name: Andy McDermott
When did you first discover FiveFingers? Known about them forever. But only first put them on one year ago.
Favorite pair and why: V Run! So light and comfortable, like not wearing any shoes!
What’s your passion: Helping people. Making a difference.
What's the most popular question you get about FiveFingers? “Do those actually work?” haha
What would you like to see in FiveFingers' designs in the future? Soccer Shoes! :)
Name 3 people you most admire: My wife.
What accomplishment are you most proud of? Man, I’ve been on a bunch of different life adventures already- maybe that’s it, actually. I guess I could say I reached a pretty high level as a soccer player, then as a martial artist, then as a police officer, and now I’m chasing my lifelong dream of being an action hero in the movies. So, I’m not overly proud of any one accomplishment, but I’m glad that I’ve been willing to risk, and TRY.
What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever been? I LOVE to travel, so it’s not possible for me to pick just one. The beach in Costa Rica, Paris at night, Chatham on Cape Cod, sunsets here in Santa Monica...
If you could eat only 3 foods for the rest of your life, what would they be? Peanut Butter, A very hearty crusty bread, and dark chocolate.
What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done? Hmmm, I was a cop on a tactical squad in Phoenix for about 8 years, so there were a handful of hairy moments there. But maybe even crazier- giving up that career, selling our beautiful house, and moving to a small apartment in LA with my wife and 4 little kids to be an actor- because that all makes perfect sense...
What is the best piece of advice you’ve received? If you wait for the perfect time to do something, you’ll never do it
What else should we know about you? I live to laugh, and to help others.
