My Personal Trainer had on a pair of these yesterday and I thought he was wearing flippers.

What do these have a purpose of?

The typical human foot is an anatomical marvel of evolution with 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles, and hundreds of sensory receptors, tendons and ligaments. Like the rest of the body, to keep our feet healthy, they need to be stimulated and exercised.

That’s why we recommend wearing FiveFingers for exercise, play, and for fun. Stimulating the muscles in your feet and lower legs will not only make you stronger and healthier, it improves your balance, agility and proprioception.

after putting a few miles on mine, i love em. the soreness in your calfs the first couple times running is crazy, but its a good pain. i like feeling sore after working out so maybe im crazy..
the shoes are defenatly worth it from what i can tell, my running seems more fluid and i dont run on my heals anymore, no more shin splints is a major plus as well.

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of females to my place of residence and/or employment, and it far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it surpasses yours. I can convey to you this recipe, but I have to demand compensation.

I talked to a girl wearing them the other day, outside of making her tits look really firm, she said that they developed muscles in her feet/legs that were some what dormant and have helped her a lot with balance.
