Vibram Five Fingers: Running Barefoot—Almost

As children, we loved to run barefoot, whether it was in the dirt or the sand—just so we could feel the cool earth running between our toes and the sensation it would have against our feet. Now we can experience the feel of going barefoot with the new Five Fingers Vibram shoes. They are pretty cool and come in a variety of colors. This new type of shoe also has a place for each toe so it’s a shoe that makes you feel like you are barefoot and mimics the actual biomechanics of your foot.

By wearing these Vibram 5 Finger shoes, the feet are free to be stimulated and exercised as they should be. While your feet feel as if they were barefoot, the Vibrams protect your feet from wear and tear. Did you ever think that you would be able to run “barefoot” through a city street?

Luckily, there are Five Fingers Vibram shoes for everyone in the family: boys, girls, men and women. You can wear them for running, walking, or any sport you play. Once you try these Vibram shoes, you’ll never want to wear anything else.

I can remember when I first saw these Vibram 5 Fingers shoes in a magazine flyer. My first thought was: “what the heck are these?” I didn’t know that I was looking at the sports shoe of the future. Yeah, they look weird. But after trying them, I understand what the hype is about.

When you run barefoot you land on your feet differently. According to, “Running barefoot causes less collision force to the feet than running in cushioned shoes.” 

So, what are you waiting for? Go to your nearest Vibram 5 Fingers shoes dealer and order your pair. They’re better for your feet, your body, and they may even improve your run time.
