Free your feet to perform at their best. The benefits of running barefoot have long been supported by scientific research. And there is ample evidence that training without shoes allows you to run faster and farther with fewer injuries.
No footwear comes closer to recreating this natural sensation than Vibram FiveFingers®. It allows you to land on your forefoot, directly below your center of gravity, resulting in optimum balance, increased stability, less impact and greater propulsion. Running in Vibram FiveFingers® delivers sensory feedback that improves agility and equilibrium and allows immediate form correction. In addition it stimulates and strengthens muscles in the feet and lower legs.
In Vibram FiveFingers®, you get all the health benefits of barefoot running combined with our patented Vibram® sole that protects you from elements and obstacles in your path.
As with any new sport or activity, Vibram recommends you consult your physician or a medical professional to see if natural running in FiveFingers® is right for you.
FiveFingers best suited for Running:
"Having grown up on the farm, I was always barefoot. However I battled for years with injuries from running in rigid traditional shoes. After switching to FiveFingers, not only to I feel like a kid again, all my niggles have cleared up thanks to my natural running form not being disturbed!"
- Luke Davidson
"I firmly believe there is room for FiveFingers in everyones shoe cupboard. And whilst I can't run 100km in my FiveFingers (I choose a natural brand like Altra), but I use all my FiveFingers for speed work and shorter distances. It's my preferred shoe up to 15km runs."
- Kelly Montgomery
Ultra Distance Runner
"I was recommended FiveFingers by a friend of mine and since making the transition, there is no going back for me. I have always been an advocate of minimalist footwear, and I believe that FiveFingers brings you as close to a natural running shoe as possible."
