Vibram Five Fingers

When it comes to unique shoes, few can match the Vibram Five Fingers because of the way it replicates the foot's natural shape. This special design allows you to walk and run according to the natural function of your feet. While this is beneficial, getting used to the Vibrams can take some time as we have become accustomed to regular shoes, which has trained our feet to move incorrectly.

If you continue walking or running with the same movement patterns you use with regular shoes, you only increase your risk of getting injured. Thus, you have to "re-train" your feet to move the way they are supposed to so you can switch to Vibram Five Fingers shoes.

Sensory exercises are the first step. Take off your shoes and socks so you can look at the shape and condition of your feet. Then, massage your feet. You can apply gentle pressure or stretch them using your hands. This will help you become more familiar with your feet.

Afterwards, walk around barefoot and explore different types of terrain. Notice how your feet will instinctively adjust to the different surfaces you encounter. It's important to be aware of these adjustments especially when you begin running with a pair of Vibrams.

You should also strengthen your feet to prepare running or walking with the Vibrams. Modern work and lifestyle trends, which are mostly sedentary, tend to weaken feet and make them less accustomed to stress. Hence, exercising them is necessary.

Practice calf raises, toe grips, dorsi and plantar flexion exercises, toe spread or tap, and exaggerated eversion and inversion. These exercises should be done in 3 sets of 20 reps at least three times a week. Lastly, practice walking with your Vibram Five Fingers shoes.

Once you've regained a sense of how your feet move and developed their strength, you can gradually begin running with the Vibrams. HTML5 Icon
