New 5 Finger Shoes – 23/365 October 17 2013

I got my new Treksport Sandals from Vibram.  I also ordered and have worn wool finger socks with them.  I plan on wearing them through this winter in Northern Wisconsin.  Today was a trail run.

  1. I’ve read reports about how great those types of shoes are supposed to be for your feet, but I don’t remember what the reports said. I was just wondering if you can remind me? What are the benefits are for wearing those types of shoes. Thanks

    • The logic behind the 5 fingers is that we have weakened the muscles in our feet by wearing all the supportive shoes. With that comes foot, knee, hip and back problems. When you ease in to wearing the minimalist shoes you start to strengthen your feet again. Short version of a long topic. Lots of information out there. I love mine.
