Are Vibrams ok for cardio walking? If so, which ones? I don’t run – but I do intense cardio walking.

Asked by Amanda on Apr 30, 2012 1 answer provided. Official Answer:

Absolutely – FiveFingers are great for walking.  The rule in my head is, “if I’m generally OK doing it barefoot, I’m generally OK doing it in FiveFingers”.  A lot of my summer is spent walking around barefoot, and when I know I’m going to be going through some hotter or rougher areas, I’ll wear fivefingers.  So, yes, absolutely, FiveFingers are great for walking. I’d recommend you start with Classics or KSOs.
