My First Year Wearing Five Fingers Full-Time

My First Year Wearing Five Fingers Full-Time

by Tyler Hurst on Apr 06, 2011 0

I bought my first pair of Sprints in September 2009, my first pair of KSOs in December 2009 and my first pair of Classics in late March 2010. After one year of wearing almost nothing but Five Fingers to work, run, play and just about everything else, I’m confident that I made the absolute best […]

Five Fingers – what’s next?

by Tyler Hurst on Mar 28, 2011 4

The company that creates Five Fingers, Vibram (pronounced VEE-brum), has to be extremely pleased with their success so far. They’ve managed to not only become an overnight success many years in the making, but also invent a new kind of casual shoe that’s gone beyond the typical running/outdoorsy crowd. They’ve crossed into the mainstream and […]

When is it time to get new Five Fingers?

When is it time to get new Five Fingers?

by Tyler Hurst on Mar 25, 2011 17

I own four pairs of Five Fingers. As a fairly avid runner and a full-time wearer, I’m pleasantly surprised at how long these things last. I wash them on average of about once a week and never dry them (okay, maybe once or twice) in hopes that they’d stay together a bit longer. I’ve never […]

Five Fingers versus Luna Sandals

Five Fingers versus Luna Sandals

by Tyler Hurst on Mar 09, 2011 6

I’ve expanded my minimalist shoe lineup recently. After nearly a year and a half of rotating Sprints, KSOs and Classics on a daily basis, I couldn’t help but long for a different shoe. I needed something for summer that worked as a flip-flop without the flipping, flopping or huge, over-cushioned sole. Hello Luna Sandals. Built […]

Every time I’m at some sort of public event, be it a spring training game, business networking meeting or even at the grocery store, I seem to always get asked about my shoes. I’m happy to answer the questions, but man, there are a few I’d rather not be asked again. Ever again. This may […]

Traveling with Five Fingers

Traveling with Five Fingers

by Tyler Hurst on Feb 20, 2011 0

I hate traveling. Whether it’s a plane ride, a road trip across the country or even a weekend jaunt across the state, there are few things I look less forward to than going somewhere away from home. It’s not that I hate people or other places, it’s that I can’t stand packing and having to […]

Five Fingers in the Gym

Five Fingers in the Gym

by Tyler Hurst on Feb 10, 2011 4

As part of my quest to get in better shape, I’ve found that running helps build stronger legs, strengthens my feet and gives me something to do when I’m bored. What long distance running doesn’t do much of is help me lose weight, build muscle all over my body and increase peak cardiovascular endurance. So […]

I get a lot of questions every time I wear my Five Fingers, which is every single day. Inquiries about their comfortableness, ability to handle extreme weather and how long it takes to break them in are oft repeated, so here’s a list of the top questions and my answers.

Five Fingers now in boots

Five Fingers now in boots

by Tyler Hurst on Jan 20, 2011 32

It took me seven tries to write the headline to this post. I wanted something witty and a little cruel to accurately convey my sentiment toward the newest line of Five Fingers announced from Vibram today. Boots. They made Five Finger boots. Fuzzy-topped boots and men’s ankle boots. Boots, with room for each individual toe. […]
