FiveFingers and Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

by Brian Patterson on Mar 14, 2012 21

Video of the Week: Decoration for Your FiveFingers

by Brian Patterson on Mar 09, 2012 34

I’m a huge fan of the TV Show Shark Tank.  Call me a sucker for reality TV (see my posts on Survivor), but I really get into shows that feature real people and real stories Shark Tank appeals to the entrepreneurial side of me; the premise is that someone with an idea or small company gets in […]

My fascination with FiveFingers on the TV show Survivor continues. We’ve posted about all of the contestants this season wearing them and also perennial survivor Ozzie wearing KSO Treks last season. The love continued last night as Troy ‘Troyzan’ Robertson’s bright yellow KomodoSports showed up prominently in the episode where contestants needed good balance for a balance beam […]

by Brian Patterson on Feb 22, 2012 2

We typically post our favorite videos from the week on Friday, but today we are breaking tradition.

Video of the Week: Ninja Warrior Submission

by Brian Patterson on Feb 17, 2012 0

Reddit is the source for internet gold, I’m convinced.  You need not look any further than the video of Al Bundy’s FiveFinger prototype (God’s Shoes) that we found there.  I say this because I also found this week’s featured video on said site.  Titled “My Friend’s Submission Video for Ninja Warrior. Is he doing it […]
