My Latest Pair: Vibram Five Fingers KSO
YES, that's my foot (lol)!
By now, most of you have probably seen some random person wearing these and wondered "what the hell are those things?" What they are, is a pair of shoes that you can use to exercise, run, play, and do much more in. I have yet to do anything other than try them on but I'm going to wear them this weekend for a couple activities and see how they feel.
According to the Vibram website (and I will definitely be testing this out first-hand now that I have them) they: 1) strengthen muscles in your feet and lower legs, 2) improve your range of motion in ankles, feet, and toes, 3) stimulate neural function important to balance and agility, 4) improves proprioception and body awareness, 5) eliminates heel lift to align the spine and improve posture, and 6) allows the feet and body to move naturally.
Not to mention they stand out, lol. But probably for all the wrong reasons. I guess they do look like gloves for your feet. Anywho, there are more pics below.
