What Shoes Would You Wear if You Were Worth $11 Billion?

by Brian Patterson » on May 19, 2011 20

If you are Sergey Brin, one of the founders of a small company called Google, the answer is simple: FiveFingers. Sergey had been spotted wearing FiveFingers as early as November of 2009, so we definintely give him credit for wearing them before they were even sorta mainstream. Here are a couple of pictures we’ve gathered of him wearing VFFs.

    Points to whom ever can name each model he’s wearing!

  2. Michael says:

    No answer so far, but I would agree with Linzi and say that Sergey wears Classics. I can understand that, I love my VFF Classics :)

  3. Corey says:

    He rocks the Classics and KSO’s.

  4. Stefanie says:

    Classics and sprints!?

  5. Jessica says:

    If I had that sort of pocket money, I’d see about having a pair custom made. :)

    my husband and i are wondering where to get VFF here in the Philippines. we have been reading great reviews about it and we wanted to buy to check if all the reviews we have read are true.a friend of mine also asked me to get a diabetic and my doctor adviced me to do 20-30 mins walking daily,major reason why we wanted to get VFF.

    I love my Five-fingers currently have been wearing KSO Multisport for the past 5-6 months best all a round sport I have owned getting ready to order my next pair of Vibrams which will be the Bormia model,should be a good cold weather choice for the Yooper area.Buy a pair you will not regret it.

    If I were worth $ Billions I would rock my sprints, classics and Trek LS.

  9. Chris Lee says:

    If I were worth $11B, I’d be wearing the same shoes as I am now. KSOs, Treks, FloJos Catalina flip flops and Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66s. I’d have more color choices in the Mexico 66s though.

    This has made my day. I wish all positngs were this good.

    I’d insist VFF make plain KSOs (black, brown, white) more widely available and in more sizes. I mean, I could fund it. As it stands, if you have small feet, they must also be slender and dainty.

    “But these are EUROPEAN sizes. Men’s and Women’s are the same.”

    No, dear friends, they are most definitely not. After all they hype and lawsuits have died down, it’s impossible for me to find a pair of VFFs that actually fit.

  12. Eniten ihmetyttää, miksi superruokapiireissä ylistetäään Kara kookoskermaa, jossa on liuta lisäaineita (E415, E412, E407), kun taas kukaan ei puhu Santa Marian kookoskermasta, jonka ainekset ovat simppelisti kookospähkinän hedelmäliha (90%) ja vesi. Voitte arvata kumpaa itse ostan.

  13. sabes lo que es un PARANOICO?…seguro que lo sabes pero por si acaso mira también el diccionario, quizás se te quite esa psicopatía que tienes encima de golpe.Sigue tratando de convencer, eres un mesías enviado de los fakers.

  14. Je suis auusi marié mais délaissé. Le peu que tu laisses voir de toi me donne envie de te découvrir davantage, d’envisager des choses coquines. Mes mains me démangent.

  15. thankfully, somebody else noticed this lag. other mac users thinks i’m insane when always complaining about mouse cursor but i don’t understand how they can’t see it.thanks for your job in cursor jumping issue and hoping to solve this one as well.

  16. Wow….you are fast Jay. I’m not trying to diss LR3 as I do use it but only after processing the RAW in DxO. Speaking of the A580, I was tempted to get it instead of the A77 but for me personally even though it has an OVF it just seemed a bit too limiting and dark for me. The results I’ve seen from the camera are very good and almost makes me wish that Sony had put that sensor in the A77. But that’s a whole other argument.Steve

  17. Leodegundia Efectivamente algo harán, pero no de manera directa ya que entonces seguramente se les echarían encima la mayoría de artistas de España. Si lo hace una persona dándole tanta difusión, ya le hubieran multado o cuando menos le hubieran cobrado el IVA de manera particular.Recuerdo el caso de la persona que en Madrid por 5 euros sorteaba su piso.Loterias y Apuestas del Estado le puso una denuncia por organizar un sorteo sin autorización, tuvo que devolver todo el dinero y le pusieron una multa, bastante elevada.

    when I go to the store, I look at the labels on Packaged Tuna that has Omega 3, but it has 30 mg of Cholesterol, is that safe to eat? Is eating tuna with that much Cholesterol safe to eat at all? and what bread has less carbs?

  19. That’s the perfect insight in a thread like this.
