Hi peeps, Has anyone read the following in the Huffington Post regarding Vibram paying out $3.75 million? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/10/_n_5302213.html Just wondering what peoples thoughts/opinions were. I absolutely love... (more)
Most threads here seems to deal with American stores in which some doesn't ship internationally. What is the best place to buy Five-Fingers that ship to Sweden?
Which have you tried and particularly which ones are good all-purpose models (that I can use for road/trail-running, walking around, and going to the gym)? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks, all!
Hey friends. I currently wear minimalist, zero-drop Merrell running shoes with vibram soles for my workouts. I'm looking for a new pair of shoes, and am weighing the options between fivefingers and inov8's. Has anybody used either or both? Any... (more)
I'm not a runner, though I used to years and years ago. I have no interest in distance running, though I may add a sprint session once per week. I have zero exercise regimen except the home push-ups, squats, planks twice a week. My daily routine... (more)
Abso-freaking-lutely. Vibrams, and good old-fashioned barefooting, were part of what got me out of a wheelchair. No amount of therapy was building up leg musculature right, but barefoot walking let nature do its thing. And I'll certainly never... (more)
Summer's coming here in Australia. I wear my VFF Sprints everywhere, but sometimes the concrete underneath my feet can feel really hot. Not scorchingly hot, but enough to be uncomfortable. What shoes provide maximum insulation against heat while... (more)
A guy I know just got a pair of these. http://www.hokaoneone.com/en/technology.html He seems really excited, and is all about running now that he can do so without back or joint pain. I tried to get him on the Vibrams or Merrells but it was... (more)
I've been wearing my Vibram KSO's for about three months now and have been running in them that entire time. However, I really have struggled being able to to run on cement with them for any long period of time. On the treadmill, I don't have any... (more)
I hate wearing dress shoes, but I work for a fairly formal organization which has a strict "business casual" dress code policy. Anybody try to pass your Vibrams off as "business casual"? Or, has anybody tried to get a note from a doctor saying... (more)
I haven't tried barefoot running yet, but I plan to try it out on treadmill over Thanksgiving, and if I like it, get some Vibrams and take it outside. So I was very surprised to read in this Facebook thread, that some runners only get 80 miles out... (more)
Hi guys, I sooo much want to purchase the VFF but I'm having a hard time finding retailers here in Canada that have them in stock. I was at the local MEC here, I looked at the MEC online site as well but everywhere it is out of stock. I know I... (more)
Hi all- I'm planning on purchasing a couple of vibrams in the very near future but wanted to shoot an few questions out first. First- I absolutely want a pair of the performa's for women- I feel like I could totally get away with wearing them in... (more)

I'd like to get some VFFs at a more pocket friendly price I found cheap ones at discountvibramfivefingers.com but it looks very flybynight and foreign, it apparently opened in may so I don't know if anyone knows anything I'm very leery and it... (more)
I bought a pair of KSO's in early April. I like how comfortable they are: I had some doubt before I purchased them. What does everyone here think of them? Has anyone seen any benefits by wearing them? Is there anything that you do not like about... (more)
Background: My first Vibrams (Classics) arrived yesterday, and I'm now wondering whether I may have ordered the wrong size. I've Googled for the specific fitting problem I'm having and I'm coming up a little short on answers. My issue is while... (more)
So I've been hearing a lot about the Vibram Five Fingers shoes & the like, and am intrigued. I would like to try this. But when I look around, the shoes for women, while fine if I was out running trails or hanging out, isn't something that I... (more)
I bought a new pair of VFF today.. the Jaya LR, in a size 39. I am worried about the fit. I have a pair of Sprints in size 40. I originally bought my Sprints in a 39 and they felt too tight, so I exchanged for 40. Because of the strap system, I... (more)
I have read the website and the posts on here about Vibram FiveFingers. I am curious if someone who stands all day for work (with no sitting at all) would benefit from wearing these? A friend of mine has a lot of pain in feet and back. I haven't... (more)
I just got my first pair of Vibrams and there is roughly an inch of room in the heel. It is driving me nuts. My toes fit well, there is no space in the toe. I pulled the heel straps back all the way but that did nothing. I ordered Mens 44, maybe I... (more)
I would suggest getting a smaller size. There shouldn't be that much space in the back. Are you near a retailer that sells them? Go in and have some one fit you or talk to you about how they should fit.
So I bought my vibram shoes about 5 months ago and am amazed with how comfortable they have been to walk in. I seem to get alot more attention with those as a lot of people just look in amazement with how someone can wear a shoe that fits all... (more)
One of the classic characteristics of Vibrams are their individual toe pockets. Yet other minimalist running shoes of the similar price, like the RunAmoc and the Evo, don't have individual toe pockets. I was originally thinking that the individual... (more)
I love my Vibrams: I use them for walking and at the gym. I am also a competitive lacrosse player, and was wondering if anyone had experience sprinting in them? I play both field and indoor lacrosse. I think they might not be ok for indoor,... (more)
So, I was thinking of getting some new shoes for badminton. While I know about the traditional badminton shoes, I was wondering how minimalist footwear - like Vibrams - would do. The best Vibrams for this appear to be the KMD LS -... (more)
I do all my exercising and recreational sports in my Vibrams. They are low to the ground and I don't experience any "rolling" like I do in a workout shoe with a higher sole.
