Check these out! Josh has been wanting these FOREVER and when we were in Washington he kept on asking if we could go to REI so that he could try them on. When we got to the South Center REI went in and he asked the guy if they had them since he did not see them. He got so excited about them said that his wife had a pair and SHE LOVES THEM. I couldn’t help but laugh because really they are Funny looking. Unfortunately they did not have them in the store and so we called the Seattle store and they were all out to. WOW they are popular…who knew. So when we got home Josh ordered them to deliver at the house. He got 2 day shipping but that sure did not work he didn’t get them until 4 days later and when he did he was so excited but then soon realized that it is going to be a chore to put each toe into the proper place.
Check out their website and what they say about them…..Vibram Five Fingers
The typical human foot is an anatomical marvel of evolution with 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles, and hundreds of sensory receptors, tendons and ligaments. Like the rest of the body, to keep our feet healthy, they need to be stimulated and exercised.
That’s why we recommend wearing FiveFingers for exercise, play, and for fun. Stimulating the muscles in your feet and lower legs will not only make you stronger and healthier, it improves your balance, agility and proprioception.
