Vibram FiveFingers...the ugliest shoes I've ever seen.

July 14, 2010
You won’t care what they say about your Vibram FiveFinger Multi Sport shoes because your feet will feel like you’re walking barefoot.  You’ll feel connected to the Earth and free.  This is the shoes for everyone who says,”I’d rather go barefoot.”
Where will you find this silly looking shoe that brings your feet back to life? At   In fact, I just looked at their website and found 64 reviews from men and 29 reviews from women who are using these barely there shoes for running, hiking, walking, kayaking/canoeing/rafting, wading and sailing.  These are active, healthy people taking time out of their lives to sing the praise of ugly shoes.  
Here the trick to true love with these shoes.  Ease into them gently.  If you used to running 10 miles in your regular shoes with the cushy pads and build-up support, you would be wise to only go a ¼ mile the first day.  In these shoes, you’re guaranteed to feel muscles in your legs, thighs, and butt you didn’t know you had.
