Have you heard about the new revolution in workout footwear?


 


Sure, you’ve heard terms like "innovation" and "breakthrough" hurled around before. So it’s entirely understandable if you don’t get excited about more talk regarding the "latest and greatest" fitness product.


 


But one look at Vibram’s line of athletic footwear is all you’ll need to realize that this product will truly revolutionize how you play and train. Why? Because these shoes don’t even look like shoes. They look exactly like your feet – complete with five separate toes!


 


Introducing Vibram Five Fingers Footwear. It’s like going barefoot – only with outstanding protection and gripping capability!


 


Each Vibram Five Fingers shoe is the result of years of meticulous research, product development, field testing, and biomechanical consulting. This footwear is so lightweight and flexible that it is able to conform to the precise contours of your foot – right down to a pocket for each individual toe. That’s why Vibram Five Fingers footwear is less like a shoe and more like a second skin on your foot.


 


The unique materials and advanced design technology make Vibram Five Fingers footwear the standard for the next generation of fitness enthusiasts. Here is a closer look at the Vibram Five Fingers collection.


 


Komodo Sport


 


This shoe is ideal for the ultimate hardcore sports enthusiast. It is equipped with a 4mm Vibram TC1 performance rubber outsole to handle the toughest environmental conditions during running, jumping or climbing. The 2mm footbed is seamless and stitch-free to reduce friction during an active workout. And the Komodo Sport’s hook-and-loop closures on its instep and heel helps secure the stretch nylon upper to your foot – so much so that you might even forget that you’re wearing shoes.


 


Bikilia LS


 


Even though this model most closely resembles a "typical" shoe, its construction and design are Vibram through and through. The Bikila LS is distinguished by its closed speed lace system which is designed to accommodate a higher instep or a wider foot. The 3mm polyurethane insole is covered with Dri-Lex material, which is thickest under the ball of the foot. This insole, along with the 4mm anatomical pod outsole design, offers unmatched plating protection and distributes the impact of the forefoot without sacrificing essential ground feedback. It’s built to stand up to harsh road conditions because of its Coconut Active Carbon upper, athletic padded topline and collar, and polyurethane toe protection to resist abrasions.


 


KSO


 


Its superior versatility and comfort have made it the most popular Vibram Five Fingers product. Since no one likes sand, rocks or other debris getting in their shoes while they train, KSO wearers love the forefoot-wrapping breathable mesh and thin stretch polyamide upper, which repels abrasions and keeps unwanted material out. Its razor-striped 3.5mm Vibram TC1 performance rubber outsole provides unbeatable traction on dry or wet surfaces and additional flexibility during heavy activity.


 


Jaya


 


This design is made for women only. It is intended for use during outdoor or indoor activities, which require agility and balance as well as power. That’s why the Jaya is built to be one of the most lightweight Vibram Five Fingers shoes – all because of the 5.5mm EVA sole. The padded collar and the athletic stretch nylon upper secure the shoe to the foot during physical activity. And its one-of-a-kind sole design features Vibram TC1 performance rubber pads, which are strategically placed to provide enhanced grip and durability.


 


All of these designs come in a choice of different color schemes, and some of them are available for kids as well. But perhaps the best feature of Vibram Five Fingers footwear is that they are machine-washable! After you toss them in the washer, you can let them air dry (away from direct sunlight) and they’ll be ready to go for your next game, training session or adventure!


 


Not only will Vibram Five Fingers shoes aid you in completing your workouts more easily, but they’ll even help you become a better athlete! Extended use of Vibram Five Fingers footwear will strengthen the muscles in your lower legs and feet while extending the range of motion in your feet, ankles and toes. Your posture will also improve, and you will notice enhanced stimulation of your neural function which will boost your agility and balance. Can your regular workout shoe do all that?


 


Imagine being able to run on asphalt, climb rocks, scramble through streams, or even jog on icy surfaces – all while barefoot! That’s the sensation you get with Vibram Five Fingers Footwear. Because these products will provide you with the flexibility, grip and range of motion associated with barefoot activity; but with all of the protection and shock absorption of the strongest and most durable athletic shoes you can buy. Once you slip on a pair of Vibram Five Fingers athletic footwear, you’ll never go back to traditional running shoes again.


So why wait? Join the Vibram Five Fingers revolution today!
