The Vibram 5 fingers are a new minimalist shoe that is the craze of many runners nowadays. The Vibram is known as the closest shoe nowadays to the feel of barefoot running. Runners from all around like them for its feel when you hit the ground with each step and the freedom of motion they give you. There are various different models of Vibram's, although runners have found that the Vibram KSO's fit their needs best, although there are many other types of models for outdoor and recreational needs. I myself own a pair and I think it is a very unique shoe, I dont run in them too often but they are very cool and feel good. Check out http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/index.htm to learn more.
