This Is So Shockingly Wrong


On April 17th, 2006 Barefoot Ted McDonald ran the Boston Marathon with these on. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you – Five Fingers footwear from Vibram.

According to it’s official website ” FiveFingers footwear connects you to the earth and your surroundings in a way that is simply not possible in conventional shoes. It puts you in touch with the earth beneath your feet and liberates you to move in a more natural, healthy way.”
