Vibram Fivefingers

Vibram FivefingersMarco Bramani, the grandson of the founder of the Italian shoe sole company Vibram, has come up with a pair of shoes that are designed to retain the sensation of walking barefoot.   Fivefingers are made from  the rubber TC4 (commonly found in outdoor sandals) which has had its porosity increased in order to improve traction in wet weather. Other modifications have been made  and you’ll find  the full technical spiel on their website.
