For those people who prefer running barefoot, Vibram has designed a new product called the FiveFingers.

“Running in FiveFingers improves agility, strength, and equilibrium, plus it delivers sensory feedback that allows runners to make immediate corrections in their form. This greatly improves running efficiency”, said Dr. Ivo Waerlop of the Vibram Biomechanics Advisory Board.

This product is designed to recreate sensation and the real feel of running barefoot. This will also lowers the risk of injuries, along with recreating the real benefits of running barefoot, the company said.

Time magazine named FiveFingers one of the best inventions of 2007.
