I'd love to give these things a shot but I can't find any link to a UK stockist & the US website only appears to ship to the US.

Look really interesting though:-

They'd certainly leave very puzzling prints in the sand.................

You'll look like a Hobbit who's stepped in some yellow and blue paint.

I've had an email from Vibram USA who say that some of the Blacks stores in the UK have them in stock.

They do make them in other colours. I fancy the black/grey/orange...

Strange that they don't distribute in Blacks' London outlets.

Won't they rub a bit though in between your toesies ?

And why are they called fivefingers shoes ???
18/05/2006 at 17:32
Yes, I wonder about the in-between-toes rubbing.
18/05/2006 at 17:53
Mmm, get some Injinji's for 'em. No rubbing then.
18/05/2006 at 17:59
cougs, I bet the designer is spanish speaking. In spanish toes and fingers are the same noun and mrs I confuses me to no end with that as well.
I just can't get used to her confusing the two...
