Ironically entitled Vibram Five fingers (should be five toes really), these shoes represent the need for man to return to walking the way nature intended. The Five Fingers allow the wearer to be more connected to the earth while enhancing agility and giving users an increased sense of balance. Outdoor athletes are actually able to truly enjoy their endeavours; the sensation and freedom of going barefoot with the protection and sure-footed grip of a Vibram sole. They look different, sound good in theory, but are they good for us…? Apparently, yes, they are. The shoes are said to reduce back pain and improve posture. You don’t get more apeish than this.
