One of the most innovative and “best inventions” to come in years, the Vibram Five Fingers Barefoot Shoe was developed with comfort, balance and athletics in mind. The shoes gives you the capability to be in motion in a more natural, flexible and FUN way. Becoming more popular by the day, the original Vibram FiveFingers leads the barefoot running shoes revolution.
The Vibram Five Fingers Speed is one of the most unique running shoes out in market. Unlike many of the other styles of Five Fingers that Vibram made, the Speed was designed to be a running shoe. It Features a Dri-Lex® covered 3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball) and a 4mm anatomical pod outsole design that offers more plating protection. Despite the new soles created for protection throughout the concrete jungle, it still conforms to the standard Five Fingers toe design and allows for more freedom in the toe area and a more natural movement.
They offer the benefits of barefoot running and the protection of shoes. It also is the first Vibram Five Fingers shoe to come with laces.
The Speed are the latest design by Vibram Five Finger and one of the more complex. The detailed sole, protective covering and style makes the Speed’s absolutely one of a kind!
Finding the Right Size Vibram FiveFingers
It’s important when ordering the Vibram FiveFingers Speed that you get the right size shoe. Vibram uses the European shoe size system so you will need to measure your foot and use this conversion chart to find the right size for you.
|Foot Length (inches)||9 ¾ “||10 “||10 ¼ “||10 ½ “||10 ¾ “||11 “||11 ¼ “||11 ½ “||11 ¾ “||12 “||12 ¼ “|
|Men’s Speed Size||38||39||40||41||42||43||44||45||46||47||48|
Vibram FiveFingers recommends the following procedure for accurately measuring your feet:
- Stand with your heels flush against a flat vertical wall.
- Slide a ruler under each foot and measure the distance from the wall to the tip of the longest toe.
- Take the longer of the two foot measurements.
- If the the foot length varies more than 1/6 in. it will be difficult to get a precise fit for both feet.
- If your your second toe is more than 1/6 in. longer than your big toe it may be difficult to get a precise fit
Vibram FiveFingers Speed Men Testimonials
|So far So Great.|
I like the control these shoes give me and even the laces that allow me to tighten them to a comfortable fit. I got the delivered at home and it arrived really quickly. I love running in the Five Fingers shoes and I think it’s a trend that will catch on.
I particularly like running barefoot on the grass but when I do run on concrete I love the Speeds and the Bikilas. I really don’t see too much of a difference between the two besides the laces. I heard that they are not that durable and do not last too long but the Speeds seem to be a little tougher than the other Vibram Five Fingers shoes that I’ve seen and worn at the stores.
Thanks for making such an awesome type of shoe for people who don’t care how weird they look when running on the track! So far so Great!
