After “recovering” from a severe pinky toe fracture on my right foot a couple years ago (while running away from my sister with a pan of shrimp ha ha ha), I noticed that regular tasks done with my feet weren’t quite the same anymore, for example, my balance was all wonky and when I worked out, I put more pressure on the other foot without even realizing it… it doesn’t sound so bad, except for the fact that I’m slowly fuc…damaging my other foot by doing so. You can imagine my horror, when I injured my left foot, and fractured my big toe, working out was about to get EVEN MORE complicated… Truth is after my injuries, regular running shoes KILL my feet, so when I saw these my heart skipped a beat… Vibram FiveFingers footwear, I believe they made these for people like me who seem prone to foot injuries! I think I may have finally found the solution to my i-can’t-seem-to-find-good-work-out-shoes problem. Work out shoes that fit like a glove… brilliant!

The sole is not designed for extended use during outdoor activities like trekking, running, or water sports.
