We unbox the Vibram Five Finger KSO and explore the benefits of bare foot style running with The Centurion Method’s Craig Fraser
On first impressions the Vibram Five Finger shoe may appear a novelty shoe that wouldn’t look too out of place on a monkey. But bare foot style running shoes, far from being a peculiarity, in fact represent a return to normality in terms of human physiology.
Vibram is the world leader in high performance rubber soles and its Five Finger shoes have drawn the attention and
praise from the footwear industry and active barefoot enthusiasts alike. Challenging the paradigm of conventional footwear.
FiveFingers footwear feature thin, ﬂexible and deconstructed soles which allow the foot to curl and ﬂex naturally.
Its stand out feature is a separate ‘glove-like’ construction, which houses each of the wearer’s five toes. The result is a shoe that provides essential protection without hindering a natural, more efficient foot strike.
Vibram FiveFingers KSOs can be purchased from Millet Sports.
