What: Vibram FiveFingers
Why: Because you love the feeling of going barefoot, but are too safety and germ-minded to go au naturale, Vibram FiveFingers is the next best thing. Designed to emulate the sensation of going barefoot, FiveFingers enhances your natural walking motion, while they “stimulate muscles in the feet and lower legs for greater balance, agility and strength.” With the Vibram sole that protects your feet from scalding surfaces and sharp objects, this alien-esque footwear is perfect for most activities that you’d rather enjoy barefoot. Some enthusiasts even wear them running! And they really fit like a glove for your feet. Once you put them on, you’ll never want to take them off. They’re a great conversation starter no matter what planet’s pavement you are pounding.
