Vibram Fivefingers is a minimalist shoe company that creates shoes to assist the natural form and function of your foot. The Vibram toe design mimics the look and mechanics of being barefoot, thereby reducing foot injuries and strengthening foot muscles.
Vibram’s founder invented the Vibram rubber lug sole in Italy. This sole provides excellent traction on a wide range of surfaces, and is used in fashion, industrial, military and law enforcement designs.
Wildfire Sports & Trek currently stocks a wide range of Vibram shoes.
