Expert Panel Question???
“What do you think about the five finger vibrams?”
We think that barefoot running is a tool that everyone should have in their running toolbox. The Vibram five fingers and other minimalist shoes do a great job of strengthening the foot and biomechanics. We recommend that people start slowly and use them only as a supplement to their everyday running shoes. This combination will add to reducing injuries and more “bang for the buck” in the time spent training. Good luck and happy running.
