These Vibram FiveFingers changed my life!
This simple statement caught my attention last weekend while spending six days at a writers’ conference near Santa Crux, California. The lady showing me her footwear discovery was about 70 years old. She told me how as a child she injured both heels and had struggled with bad footwear and could not run – even walking hurt.
Then she found Vibram FiveFingers. Now she runs and recently finished a 5KM race. She showed me how she runs on the balls of her feet. A conferee had asked me a question about her feet and I told her she needed to talk to the lady with the FiveFingers. They talked quite a while and she came away eager to check out her running store when she got home – our Internet search shows they carry the FiveFinger.
I read an email from a member of a listserv. He said, “My calves and glutes hurt like hell, but that’ll pass. My gait has also changed; fore- or mid-foot strike instead of heel strike.”
While Vibram FiveFingers are not for everyone, they are working for a huge number of athletes.
Have you tried them yet?
