Five finger shoes

The Five finger shoes are a compromise, simulating a naturally bare feeling while protecting toes from the city cement. Resembling flexible foot gloves, Five Fingers shoes feature a pocket for each toe, very different from most sneakers on the market. Running barefoot, in contrast, results in less pressure on the lower joints because the balls of the feet are absorbing the impact as weight shifts. Made with a polyurethane insole designed to protect the ball, the lightweight Vibram shoes are comparable in style to gorilla feet.
