Some fitness professionals swear by them. They fit your feet like a glove and can be worn for various athletic activites. If you are interested in finding out more information, check out www.vibramfivefingers.com. They are the leading brand. The website should help you find the nearest distributor. Prices average between $75-$125.
” Vibram FiveFingers® footwear is different than any other footwear on the planet. Not only does it bring you closer to your environment, it also delivers a number of positive health benefits—by leveraging all of the body’s natural biomechanics, so you can move as nature intended.”
Their called Vibram 5-fingers and, I’d suggest you check sporting goods stores in your area before purchasing… or, check the site as stated above and find a location near you. Currently, here in SoCal, pretty much every sporting goods store carries them.
Try them on, walk in them. Don’t purchase from the site. They’ve come up with some delicious new styles yet, they’re not made for all feet.
If you’re not walking barefoot a lot, or running barefoot, go slowly then slow down and break in your feet. They’ve most likely lost a lot of padding and support from shoes and if you go too quickly you could injure your feet.
