Product Review: Vibram KSO 5 Finger Shoes

Discover The Alternative®. Every once in a while, a product comes
along that changes the way we engage in sports—like shaped skis, full
suspension mountain bikes or oversized tennis rackets.It bucks
tradition and makes people think differently. Sometimes this happens
in footwear and a whole new category is created, like sport sandals,
aerobic fitness trainers or Vibram®-soled dress shoes so comfortable
you could run a marathon. Originally, many of these products were
considered a novelty, maybe even a gimmick, but eventually they helped
define a new standard of performance. And most importantly, they
delivered a better experience for the user.
Vibram FiveFingers® might be considered such a product, a
revolutionary footwear design that allows our anatomy to work
naturally and move more freely.
Discover healthier footwear. Imagine footwear that can actually help
make the foot healthier, that can strengthen muscles in the feet and
lower legs, improve range of motion and increase sensory reception
important to balance and agility. Imagine footwear that might just
make running safer and healthier, by encouraging a forefoot strike and
a more natural running form that creates less impact on the knees,
hips and lower back. That is what Vibram FiveFingerscan offer.
We are not saying that Vibram FiveFingers® is the only footwear you
will ever need. There are times when we need the protection and
security of a boot or shoe. Like all things in life, there is a
balance, and Vibram FiveFingers® offers an alternative to traditional
footwear. Wearing FiveFingers for fitness training, running or just
for fun will make your feet stronger and healthier – naturally. .

How FiveFingers Works
Our revolutionary design makes feet healthier by allowing them to move
more naturally and freely.

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.

Voted “Most Popular” for its versatility. Over the last two years, the
KSO has become our most popular model for men for its unbeatable
comfort and versatility. It features a thin, abrasion-resistant
stretch polyamide and breathable mesh upper that wraps your entire
forefoot to “Keep Stuff Out.” A single hook-and-loop closure helps
secure the fit. The non-marking 3.5mm Vibram® TC1 performance rubber
outsole is razor-siped for enhanced flexibility and a sure grip on wet
or dry surfaces.

These shoes are excellent! It really feels like you are barefoot,
except you have protection. You feel it when you step on big rocks,
but you don’t normally get hurt.


1. The shoes give you the feel of being barefoot, but give you protection.
2. If you aren’t used to things between your toes it will feel weird
at first, but soon you won’t even know you have them on.
3. I tried the Injinji 5 finger socks and they are much more
uncomfortable then the shoes themselves.
4. If you are going to wear the shoes daily, use the socks, because
they will help with sweat and dirt, making your shoes last longer.
5.  Remember at first to wear them for short periods to allow your
feet to get used to them.
6. Don’t wear them in the winter the shoes are thin and the top is
perforated making your feet extremely cold.
7. For the powerlifter: these shoes are excellent for squats and deadlifts
8. For the Jui Jitsu practitioner these shoes are excellent for
stoping mat burn on the tops of your feet.

Buy these shoes they are awesome.
