Why Vibram FiveFingers Shoes?

By walking and running barefoot we allow our body to move how it was initially designed. By wearing shoes, however, we change the natural way we walk and run which can lead to sprains, shin splints, and other common foot injuries.

Dr. William Rossi in a 1999 article in Podiatry Management said it best with regards to going barefoot:

Wise ManIt took 4 million years to develop our unique human foot and our consequent distinctive form of walk, a remarkable feat of bioengineering. Yet, in only a few thousand years, and with one carelessly designed instrument, our shoes, we have warped the pure anatomical form of human walk, obstructing its engineering efficiency, afflicting it with strains and stresses and denying it its natural grace of form and ease of movement head to foot.

Many customers after switching from traditional athletic shoes to Vibram FiveFingers shoes have reported an increase in sense of balance, improved agility, relief from past running injuries, and an improvement in overall posture.
