Gifts for the Runner, Athlete, Adventurer: Vibram FiveFingers Barefoot Shoes
You might have seen people wearing these funny shoes and wondered what all the hype is about. My daughter has a pair, and she loves them! She is not a runner per se, but she finds they are fabulous for free form bouldering and just general lollygagging.
Vibram Fivefingers :
Vibram FiveFingers® footwear is different than any other footwear on the planet. Not only does it bring you closer to your environment, it also delivers a number of positive health benefits--by leveraging all of the body's natural biomechanics, so you can move as nature intended.
5 Reasons to Wear Vibram FiveFingers:
1. Strengthens Muscles in the Feet and Lower Legs--Wearing Vibram FiveFingers will stimulate and strengthen muscles in the feet and lower legs, improving general foot health and reducing the risk of injury.
2. Improves Range of Motion in Ankles, Feet and Toes--No longer 'cast' in a shoe, the foot and toes move more naturally.
3. Stimulates Neural Function Important to Balance and Agility--When wearing Vibram FiveFingers, thousands of neurological receptors in the feet send valuable information to the brain, improving balance and agility.
4. Eliminate Heel Lift to Align the Spine and Improve Posture--By lowering the heel, your bodyweight becomes evenly distributed across the footbed, promoting proper posture and spinal alignment.
5. Allow the Foot and Body to Move Naturally--Which just FEELS GOOD.
Every person I have seen wearing these shoes says they love them! They are made of synthetic materials. There is nothing natural about them except for they way they help you move.
