FiveFingers by Vibram are perhaps some of the most bizarre looking shoes you will see on an individual. So why do people wear these things? Well for some very good reasons: For one the Vibram Five Fingers will leverage all of the body’s natural bio-mechanics so you can move as nature intended. This means when you are running you will start to land on the ball of the foot, as opposed to a mid or rear strike. This new running form (and walking) is said to lower the injuries to your knees and lower back by reducing the continues pressure you are putting on these body parts with bad form. Vibram Five Fingers are also beneficial when lifting weights because they force your body to distribute balance allowing you to focus on the muscles you are intending to target. Skeptical? Google the research that is done on this topic and read the reviews from the people who have actually worn the shoes. And when that’s all said and done you should just give them a shot – you will not be sorry.
