vibram five fingers

5 reasons to wear Vibram FiveFingers® :

1. Strengthens muscles in the feet and lower legs—Wearing Vibram FiveFingers® will stimulate and strengthen muscles in the feet and lower legs, improving general foot health and reducing the risk of injury.

2. Improves range of motion in ankles, feet and toes—No longer ‚cast‘ in a shoe, the foot and toes move more naturally.

3. Stimulates neural function important to balance and agility—When wearing Vibram FiveFingers® , thousands of neurological receptors in the feet send valuable information to the brain, improving balance and agility.

4. Eliminate heel lift to align the spine and improve posture—By lowering the heel, your bodyweight becomes evenly distributed across the footbed, promoting proper posture and spinal alignment.

5. Allow the foot and body to move naturally—Which just FEELS GOOD.
