Five Fingers

Tim Ferriss on Vibram Shoes from Kevin Rose on Vimeo.

Who could pass up dropping by a MEC, especially in Halifax?

Pick up your pair of Five Fingers now - in June, July or August when you want them there won't be any left.

Found this video interview from an enthusiastic wearer who provides more information and his thoughts on FFs.

I am still not convinced these shoes or barefoot running is for most of us - since a substantial amount of stress is transmitted through the heel with heel contact and that is why we use a running shoe with a bit of a cushion. Most of us who run - even short distances can feel symptoms in the lower leg when our shoes are wearing out.

But the Five Fingers would be great for pools, beaches, kayaks.
