Fivefingers Shoes

I'd love to give these things a shot but I can't find any link to a UK stockist & the US website only appears to ship to the US.

Look really interesting though:-

    They'd certainly leave very puzzling prints in the sand.................
  • Bigfoot !!

  • Chaos - had a quick look online but no joy. Have you found any US retailers that would ship over here?
  • American company?

    I will SUE. I can not access they product. not my fault I have webbed toes.
  • I'm feeling strangely fascinated by them! Would everyone laugh if I wore them to the pub?
  • $70.00!!! They look like something that an alien from Dr. Who would wear.
  • I saw a pair in Offspring in Camden on Sunday. Didn't see the price though.

    hey - they look cool! I wanna pair....

    love this from their website

    "A convenient pull tab and elastic lock lets you customize the."

    customize the WHAT??? full stop?? eejut web designer......
  • LOL FB, find em and find out!

    I've mailed them to ask if they have a UK dealer
  • I want a pair! If they have them in Camden, I'll have a look tomorrow as I am not too far.
  • You'll look like a Hobbit who's stepped in some yellow and blue paint.
  • Woo Hoo!

    I've had an email from Vibram USA who say that some of the Blacks stores in the UK have them in stock.

    let's see if a cut and paste from Excel works...

  • They do make them in other colours. I fancy the black/grey/orange...

    Strange that they don't distribute in Blacks' London outlets.
  • Won't they rub a bit though in between your toesies ?

    And why are they called fivefingers shoes ???
  • Yes, I wonder about the in-between-toes rubbing.
  • Mmm, get some Injinji's for 'em. No rubbing then.
  • cougs, I bet the designer is spanish speaking. In spanish toes and fingers are the same noun and mrs I confuses me to no end with that as well.
    I just can't get used to her confusing the two...
  • I love this forum - you learn sooo much.

    And those socks are just weird !!
  • The web design is crap.
    Actually Taffia, you could sue them 'cos the text can't be read enlarged, making it inaccessible to visually impaired users.
  • Or the blind.
  • Hoorah
    Telford Blacks here I come (the first time anything has ever been in Shropshire and not in London....... Shropshire IS little Britain)
  • Probably worth a call first Mimi. Don't want to have sent you on a wasted journey if they don't have your size or have no stock left.

    But if they do have your size in, do give us some feedback!
  • Why am I so excited about looking like a hobbit? I will do a little trip on Sunday and keep you posted! Or I might try them on and my feet will look so daft that I can't possible part with my hard earned cash.
  • Oh my God!!!!!! Feel a bit giddy!!!!! I have got a pair on hold in Telford. In black...... with yellow trim. Ho ho
  • Are we to call you Mimi Baggins from next week?
  • I'm starting to warm to these freaky shoes now. Stop it - all of you !!
  • So am I. I may not wear them much out, but as house/garden shoes they look ldeal.

    They are sort of alluring, in a weird way.

  • How much are they again ? They may be good for on holiday ya see....
