Vibram 5 fingers
Central Park, NYC - With all the talk surrounding barefoot running recently, we were inspired today when one of our athletes showed up to practice wearing the Vibram 5 Fingers (shown above). Basically a light weight rubber sole, affixed to the foot with some light fabric and a strap, this is the closest to barefoot running you can get without actually having to go barefoot. He's had no problems so far adjusting to the transition, and I'm sure he's feet and legs are stronger for it, ultimately making him a faster runner. I'll give a full product review soon, now that I'm getting a pair!
