Kids love taking their shoes off and running around barefoot. They’ll walk around barefoot, play on the swing set barefoot and probably would go to school barefoot if they were allowed too. Now, it is not typical to see adults not wearing shoes. Unfortunately, running around and playing barefoot is not really an acceptable activity for adults these days. But, we can all remember what it felt like taking off your shoes during those hot summer days. You could feel the heat from the sun on the bottom of your feet while standing on the sidewalk. In a way, your feet felt free.
Well don’t worry, the days of your feet feeling the heat and freedom are not over! Have you ever seen someone wearing those unique looking shoes that have the individual toe spaces? I’m sure you have. Vibram FiveFingers are becoming quite popular and are no longer just for those who want to feel like they are running barefoot.
The benefits of wearing Five Fingers are quite unique and are most likely unknown to most. Our feet have 52 bones, 66 joints, 40 muscles and hundreds of tendons, ligaments and sensory receptors. Ensuring the health and comfort of our feet is important and should not be over looked. They are designed to make you feel like you are barefoot. This allows the foot to position itself in its natural position, which reduces the strains and discomfort we sometimes feel when wearing other shoes all the time.
These shoes do require some adjustment time. It is not always easy to break in a new pair of shoes and these are no different. But, your foot becomes stronger from wearing the FingerFives.
Hanigs offers the FingerFives in a wide variety of styles and colors. Want a black and grey pair? Or maybe you would like a green and blue pair. You will be able to find a color combination that intrigues you. Would you prefer a pair with laces or a pair with no laces? There are numerous styles to select from. Though these shoes are becoming a trendy fashion statement, there is such a large style variety available that your pair will stand out.
Now you might be tempted to throw out all your other shoes after wearing these for a few days because of how great your feet feel. But, don’t. Women, your heels and flats are still needed and men, these shoes might not be office acceptable. However, they are a great addition to your shoe collection. A switch in shoe style is always good from time to time. Your feet will get a nice break from your other shoes that can sometimes cause discomfort.
The FingerFives will allow your feet to feel free while your walking, running or working out. Feeling free is a great feeling, one that is too good to pass up. Don’t let their unique look stop you from treating your feet to a well-deserved break!
