I know that the FiveFingers shoes are hideous BUT I've heard really great things about them. I don't know how I feel about having something in between my toes but I'm willing to give them a try (don't laugh). Hey Josh Duhamel wears them and he's cool, so why can't I?
Now the reason that I want them is because I heard that they are great for increasing lower leg strength. My Chicken legs could use a boost, especially my skinny calves.If you are thinking about purchasing a pair you can buy them here.
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.
Would you be caught dead in these funky shoes?????????
