Some have called the FiveFingers Sprint the most versatile footwear they own. Adjustable hook-and-loop closures cross over the instep and surround the heel for a personalized, secure fit. A thin abrasion-resistant stretch polyamide fabric follows the contour of the foot for comfort. And a flexible, non-marking TC1 performance rubber sole is razor siped to enhance grip over a variety of terrain.
Vibram FiveFingers is different than any other footwear on the planet. Not only does it bring you closer to nature, it delivers a number of positive health benefits—by leveraging all of the body’s biomechanics so you can move as nature intended.
When you walk, run, or climb in FiveFingers, you experience a sense of touch and feel that is simply not possible in conventional performance footwear. We call this a haptic response, and it describes your body’s sensibility to the world around you.
A patent-pending design and Vibram outsole mirrors the flex points and silhouette of your foot and toes to propel your body forward and promote a more natural gait. By stimulating the muscles of your lower legs and feet, you add strength, improve balance, and increase agility, while a lower heel position leads to stronger legs and feet, straightens your spine, improves posture, and reduces back pain.
The Vibram FiveFingers Sprint has been designed so it is more versatile for activities such as;
- light trekking
- fitness training
- martial arts
How to Measure Your Foot: Foot shapes and sizes can vary greatly. Fivefingers do provide some adjustment, but may not fit every foot type. For best results in finding your size we recommend measuring both feet, heel to toe:
1. Standing with your heels against a flat wall
2. Slide ruler under each foot and measure the longest toe
3. Take the longer of the two measurements
4. If your foot length varies by more than .4cm, it will be difficult to get a precise fit for both feet.
5. If your second toe is more than .4cm longer than your big toe, it will be difficult to get a precise fit.
