Win Some Free FiveFingers!

by Dan Hinckley » on Jan 20, 2011 176

The team loves everything about FiveFingers.  We love to write about them, wear them on adventures, confuse inquisitive strangers with them, and now in 2012, we want you to love them – so we are giving them away for free.

For each month in 2012 we’re going to give a pair of Vibram FiveFingers to a lucky winner. Winners will pick the style & size they want, and where they’d like them shipped, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Of course, we don’t want to give these away to just anyone. We want winners of Vibram FiveFingers to really want a pair and we feel that one of the best ways to demonstrate that you want a pair is to be vocal about it!

So, to enter yourself into the Year-Long Giveaway we ask that you share the info with others. Below are 5 ways to enter:

  1. Subscribe to this site’s newsletter using the form below
  2. Like the Facebook page
  3. Follow @MyFiveFingers on Twitter
  4. Tweet out the Year-Long Giveaway with a link to this page and use the hash tag #WinFiveFingers
  5. Link to this page from your blog or other website (be sure to leave a comment below with a link to your site so we don’t miss any)

You receive one entry for each method you use, and your entry is good all year!  So for example, if you Like us on Facebook, Subscribe to the newsletter (below), and follow us on Twitter – thats 3 entries!  You can increase your chances of winning by adding links or tweeting about the giveaway each month (options 4 & 5).

We’ll track the entries and randomly select a winner each month to receive a pair of Vibram FiveFingers.

We look forward to giving away 12 pairs of Vibram FiveFingers in 2012.

Small Update: We have been getting some questions on which VFF’s people can choose from.  The answer is, you can choose any pair that are available from our giveaway sponsor, River Sports.

    So cool of you guys! I hope I win! I liked you on FB and subscribed! I guess I need to look into this twitter thing everyone keeps talking about. I do not have a pair of Vibrams yet, my husband got some a few months ago. He started training for the Tough Mudder in them and he said it was the smartest thing he did. He did the Tough Mudder in Austin yesterday and it was so cool! I saw tons of people in their five fingers! I am now going to start training to do the Tough Mudder in October in North Tx with my husband and really need to get a pair to train in!

    I just subscribed and have been in great desire of finding a pair of Vibram Five Fingers ever since I first saw a pair on line. I have wide toes, high arches and a narrow heal and that is size 13 or 14 depending on who makes the shoe. It is almost impossible to find a pair of shoes that fit my feet. several toes on each foot are permanently numb because of the abuse of all the pointy toe shoes I am forced to settle for on the market. Pointy toe shoes are made for manikins not people. I want to start running but only Vibram makes a running shoe with a wide toe and I haven’t found them yet. Back in March my Doc told me, I got to quit junk foods because of my blood being so thick with Triglycerides. My triglyceride level was very high at 405 and normal is less then 150. Since then I have been eating healthy and exercising and gone down from 212 lbs to weigh in at 195 lbs. I love Vibram Five Fingers and got to get some.

  47. Where can I get my Vibram Five Fingers to set my feet free to dance and run?

  48. I looked on a chart and found that I ware size 45 but that size was out of stock in the Trek Sport, Bikila and Komodo.

    ok so today i came up to the conclusion that i really wanted a pair of shoes so i put my ps3 up for sale on craiglist, then used money i shouldnt have to get me a pair. I love them my point is I couldn’t afford it and I gave up something i used to love for my new love. I even posted on the facebook page if they would ever give a pair away and now i found this. so yeah i may have a pair now but if i could win a pair for when i beat these ones up it would be more then amazing. I’m on a path to a new life i started this journey at 411 pounds i now way 360 and feel confident enough to use these, i would love to continue one with these. Thank you very much ^_^
