Colbert-FFS

As I’m sure many of our followers noticed, we posted a picture of Stephen Colbert on our Facebook page on Friday of him wearing a pair of Vibram FiveFingers (specifically the EL-X model). Although a funny shot for Colbert, it was actually a pretty exciting moment for us minimalist runners. Regardless of the countless times our “fad” (as Runner’s World … Read More

Heads up, readers, Tony Post is back in the shoe game!  Before I get ahead of myself, though, and in case you aren’t aware, Tony Post is the original CEO/President/Founder of the Vibram FiveFingers running shoes.  Back in July of 2012, Tony made the seemingly spontaneous decision to step down as CEO, and, at the time, he didn’t offer up … Read More

Every time I find myself looking over this series, I wonder if we should rename it to something like “minimalist” transition, but instead, we keep this name because there are many notable things that differentiate FiveFingers from the rest of the minimalist shoe lines.  So, I wanted to bring some attention to the differences between 5-toed shoes and single toe … Read More

With the 2012 Olympics only 10 days away, companies left and right are beginning to release their Olympic-style gear, Olympic branded soft drinks, and Olympic advertisements.  This marketing phenomenon reaches our televisions, store shelves, and fast-food restaurants every two years (between the summer and winter games).  My celebration of the summer Olympics began with my recent discovery of slow-motion videos … Read More

The most frequently asked question I get when I wear my Vibram FiveFingers around town is: “Are those actually comfortable?” Of course, my answer is always some variation on “Yes, they’re very comfortable,” and is often followed up by a longer explanation of the benefits of minimalist footwear if the asker is interested to hear more.

It was truly a paradise.  There we sat at the beachside bar in beautiful Waikiki, fruity drinks in hand as we watched the sun slowly melt into the sea.  You could hear the waves gently crashing on shore nearby as ukulele music wafted along with the warm tropical breeze.  It couldn’t get any better than this.  Then I looked down … Read More
