Why Try Vibram's?
They look a little crazy - so why should you get your toes into a pair of Vibram FiveFingers?
Vibram's revolutionary design makes your feet healthier by allowing them to move more naturally and freely.
Your foot is an anatomical marvel of evolution with 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles and hundreds of sensory receptors, tendons and ligaments. Like the rest of the body, to keep your feet healthy, they need to be stimulated and exercised. Vibram FiveFingers help you strengthen muscles in your feet and lower legs, improving range of motion and allowing enhanced sensory reception importion to balance and agility.
Vibram FiveFingers are a great option for many activities...
The benefits of running barefoot have long been supported by scientific research, with ample evidence suggesting that including barefoot training can help you to run faster and farther with fewer injuries. Barefoot running encourages a forefoot strike and a more natural running form that takes stress off the knees, hips and lower back.
Vibram FiveFingers® allow you to reap the benefits of barefoot running, with a thin performance outsole to protect you from the elements and obstacles in your path. Running in Vibrams encourages forefoot landing, directly below your center of gravity, resulting in optimum balance, increased stability, less impact and greater propulsion. Running in FiveFingers delivers sensory feedback that improves agility and equilibrium and allows immediate form correction. You'll also strengthen the muscles of your feet and lower legs, further improving your running form and health.

Like every other part of your body, your feet benefit from exercise. Whether you are cardio training, lifting weights or powering through a CrossFit routine, many exercises rely on flexible yet stable support from your feet and legs. That’s why the unique design of Vibram FiveFingers helps you get the most out of your workout and your body.
In Vibram FiveFingers, your feet can move naturally and flex easily. Five individual toe slots let your toes separate gently, stabilizing your body and providing unrivaled balance and increased muscle stimulation to feet, ankles and lower legs. The ultra-thin Vibram® sole delivers a sure-footed grip to help generate torque during power moves, and it enhances feedback and lowers your center of gravity to improve balance and agility. By putting your feet on a flat plane, without the downward angle caused by the heel lift in traditional shoes, your posture and alignment will improve and your joints and back will be in position for you to get the most out of your power movements.
