Vibram Five Fingers V-Alpha Men's shoes - Black
I love these shoes and I’ve been using them at the gym for the last 3-4 months. At this point I can’t figure out the difference between where my foot ends and shoe begins. These shows give me great stability and grip. I sweat a lot in my legs and foot but it doesn’t suffocate my at all. It’s flexible but initially when I got it, the stitching between little finger and my second last finger used to dig into my skin and it was painful. So I took a scissor and made a small cut, and viola! Problem solved. I love it so much, sometimes I wear it at home, all day.
So long story short it’s great! Wishing it could be a little cheaper, but other than that don’t even think, just go for it!
Give yourself time to adapt to this kind of footwear.
Measure your foot using the size guide before ordering. If you're in between, go for the larger size.
Vibrams are company that make high quality soles worldwide and hopefully thrse five fingers also last that long. The concept of such shoes is fascinating and after trying them for a few workouts, I do feel more planted. Their guide for getting used to five finger shoes for general walking / outdoor workouts helps.
The shoe is under size by minimum 2 size of the average size you wear.

Vibram FiveFingers is a protective tool and articulated rubber sole in the shape of the human foot. The glove like upper respects the natural functionality of the foot, allowing you to feel the ground naturally with a level of protection.
The idea behind the creation of the Fivefingers shoes was to manufacture shoes that could fit cozily and comfortably around the foot. By wearing the Fivefingers shoes, the individual fingers of the feet can move easily in their place while you can walk, run or do any such activities without any hassles. They are closest to being totally barefoot. It’s an Italian brand. Gambol is the official and only importer and distributor for Vibram Finger Shoes in India.
There is an elementary function that is often overlooked: the foot performs as a sensory organ.
Due to its flexibility and natural articulation, it can adapt and sense the ground with every step, much like the characteristics of our hands. The real time data our foot collects and delivers to the brain as we step, helps us with instinctive and natural human movement.
The mission of Vibram FiveFingers is to engineer essential protective footwear always aiming at allowing the human foot to move naturally and uncompromised. You get all the benefits of going barefoot such as:
- Better Grip
- More Stability
- Sensory Feedback
- Freedom of Movement
We have attached the size chart with all the products, Please refer to the chart and order Exact size. You can refer to your current Branded Shoes and simply check UK size and check corresponding EU size in the size chart. We Can also guide you for selecting your perfect size. Perfect size is very crucial.
FiveFingers generally should have a glove-like fit on your foot, but the best judge of size is your own comfort level. If the shoe feels too big or too small, it probably is! Each model will fit and feel differently, and each person’s feet are shaped and structured differently. As such, you may fit better in a size different from what the size chart recommends, and that’s ok.
Pro Tip: - If your longest finger of feet touches the wall of the footwear then you have found your perfect partner.

Yes, You need to handwash them with cold water. Hang to air dry. Do not Machine Wash.
Your Five-fingers should last more than your traditional athletic shoe. This will vary depending on the person, model, and the use. Shoes are designed with a particular activity in mind. If you use a trail running shoe for road running it will wear quicker. 1000 Kms is what you should expect. Vibram Soles are one of the best soles in industry and it lasts longer than the upper.
Minor initial discomfort is not unusual for some individuals, depending on your foot type and running style, but you should not continue if the pain persists. Transitioning slowly to build proper strength is imperative when beginning to run in Vibram FiveFingers.
Sure! Keep in mind that the men’s sizing is slightly longer and wider than women’s, so a Men’s size 40 will fit and feel larger than a Women’s size 40.
Yes; Absolutely Yes. You can walk/run on the road with Vibram five fingers. Just make sure you are using right product for the right purpose. For example; Use V-run model for running purposes.

Yes, you can wear. If you have flat foot it will take more time to adjust as they don’t have any artificial support. You need to plan a feet strengthening journey with proper exercise and footwear. It will take time but yes you can absolutely wear them.
There is a commonly held belief in foot care that flat feet must be supported. But it’s unclear what exactly the definition of a flat foot is, and what complications it leads to. Arch support in traditional footwear does not teach you how to use your feet well and it doesn’t allow you to use your foot muscles, so it might actually hinder rather than help. Foot function is a much bigger indicator of success than the height of your arch. As long as there is no pain, dysfunction, or underlying pathologies, then both kids and adults can wear barefoot shoes even with flat feet.
