Vibram Five Finger Shoes – A Treat for your Feet!
|September 9, 2010||Posted by healthsmartmom under Exercise|
Have you seen the new Vibram Five Fingers shoes yet? They’re decidedly different and people are flocking to them for the benefits of a better foot plant when walking or running, better agility, balance, posture, toe spread, comfort, foot strength and other great perks.
Here’s one of the best things about Vibram footwear: they’re so comfortable that you’ll want to wear them every day – not just when you’re working out, but for everyday wear. They’re the next best thing to going barefoot, which is the healthiest condition for your feet.
People are wearing Vibrams around the house, for walking the dog, for shopping, commuting and to work. Wouldn’t it be great to wear your Vibram five finger shoes for casual day at work? These would be perfect with a pair of jeans or comfortable khakis, and you’ll have the extra bonus of being really, truly comfortable.
The innovative design of Vibram shoes is what makes them so special. They hug your feet, but don’t squeeze them into shapes they aren’t meant to go into. They protect your feet, but are thin enough that you can feel the ground below you. They provide traction and grip, but are nothing at all like the traditional shoes you’re accustomed to wearing.
Vibram shoes are right for any occasion where better comfort and health are important. Wear them for your morning yoga workout. Put them on when you’re headed to the grocery store or coffee shop. Wear them when running errands or running five miles. And definitely enjoy wearing them for casual day at the office.
My favorites are the sprint because of their neutral yet still not boring color scheme (see photo above.) Of course, my favorite place to shop is Amazon. If you want more info on the fun and stylish Vibram Five Finger Shoes, check out this great Squidoo Lens.
