Sell Out

Ok I resisted as long as I possible could but I did it I bought Vibram 5 fingers! Its funny to think there is no other reason to buy vibrams but performance. Vibrams are probable the goofiest shoes I have ever put on my feet. HHHHMMMM are they even shoes?

Well after going to a stretch specialist and her describing my lower leg muscles as asleep. I figured it was time to step it up. More to come on this topic.

Thanks Web for doing things first so others can follow or not.

6 Key Reasons to Wear or Train in Vibram FiveFingers:

1. Strengthens Muscles in the Feet and Lower Legs - wearing FiveFingers will stimulate and strengthen muscles in the feet and lower legs, improving general foot health and reducing the risk of injury.

2. Improves Range of Motion in Ankles, Feet and Toes – no longer ‘cast’ in a shoe, the foot and toes move more naturally.

3. Stimulates Neural Function Important to Balance and Agility - when wearing Vibram FiveFingers, thousands of neurological receptors in the feet send valuable information to the brain, improving balance and agility.

4. Improves Proprioception and Body Awareness – those same neurological receptors heighten body awareness, sending messages about body mechanics, form, and movement.

5. Eliminates Heel Lift to Align the Spine and Improve Posture – By lowering the heel, our bodyweight becomes evenly distributed across the footbed, promoting proper posture and spine alignment.

6. Allows the Foot and Body to Move Naturally, Which Just FEELS GOOD.

To all of you investors out there, the fact that Jeremy Thiel is wearing Vibrams to improve performance and wellness is a sign that perhaps you should invest in the shoe company. If he adopts something like this, it may be a sign that Vibrams in the CrossFit community are here to stay...

Way to go, JT, for sucking it up and joining the barefoot running crowd!
