Celebrities may wear Vibram Five Fingers Shoes, but I still don’t.

Shoeaholics Anonymous Disclosure

Now, pink may be favorite color, and I love Mary-Jane style shoes, but I still wouldn’t be caught dead wearing these Vibram FiveFingers Women’s Sprint shoes. Many have tried to convince me how comfortable (and stimulating and fun and healthy, yadda, yadda, yadda) Vibram Five Fingers are, but I just absolutely cannot stand things between my toes. I rarely even wear flip-flops for that same reason.

Recently the fad of Fivefingers has caught on to celebrities, as seen below…

Pictures left to right…

Channing Tatum wore Vibram Five Fingers KSO while visiting an art gallery in SoHo, New York City (source: Just Jared). My daughter, ironically named Tatym has the hugest crush on Channing Tatum! She says when they get married, she’ll be Mrs. Tatym Tatum (pronounced the same).

Thomas Jane wore Vibram Five Fingers to the premiere of HBO’s “Hung” (source: New York Post / WireImage).

Ex-NFL Player for the Titans and the Oiler (and Heisman Trophy Winner) Eddie George wore what appear to be black Vibram Five Fingers Flow to the 4th Annual DirecTv Celebrity Beach Bowl (source: BirthdayShoes.com Blog).

I couldn’t find any photos of any celebrities wearing the Vibram Five Fingers Classic style. And I couldn’t find any photos of any FEMALE celebrities wearing ANY Five Fingers styles. Guess those women are smart like me!?

  1. Unless you are a super sporty surfer or something, these seem a little silly.

  2. I am Female & I have a pair of Sprints (Mary-Jane style) & they are FANTASIC to wear on holiday. Comfortable to wear on the street & a god-send walking on hot sand!!

  3. If I’m not mistaken this is the so called “”barefoot shoes”…I love the white and blue colored one…so cute on foot and comfortable too…

  4. I swore I’d never wear vibram five fingers. We called them the vibram kso of Suck a few years ago and I was sure they were crazy. Friends, I’m here to tell you I was wrong. And I’m sorry. Here’s my story: I ran a marathon a few years ago. I got plantar fasciitis and couldn’t run after the marathon. I worked through that inflammation but by the time I was ready to run vibram FiveFingers Sprint again I had gained thirty pounds. Wham. Shin-splints. So I was a fat former runner with leg problems. The prognosis wasn’t good. So I tried a few things – the elliptical, weight training, losing some freaking weight – but the thing that saved me were these vibram five fingers shoes.

  5. you should try those shoes. they are fantastic. go to a store and try them. they might weird but once you get used to them, you’ll thank them.
