Remember running around barefoot when you were a kid? How free & easy it felt to climb trees, feel the grass under your toes, and then – OW! Step on a sharp pebble or twig? Vibram FiveFingers Shoes ($75-90) are designed to safely replicate that comfortable barefoot feeling without the risk of foot injury. They work with the natural curves of your feet to support you and flex with your movements, particularly over uneven terrain. Personally, we can’t quite get over how funny it is to wear shoes that look like toe socks, but anything that makes us want to run, skip, and jump like a six year old again has got to be worth trying.
