One Year of Vibram FiveFingers, Up Close and Personal

We just passed our anniversary of running in the FiveFingers. Here is an intimate look at how mine are holding up under fairly serious, steady use.

A little dirty on the inside.

The toes still look good.

The right shoe has two small holes, one in the "ring" toe, one in the ball. Neither are down to the skin yet and they don't bother me.

The left shoe is thin, but hasn't broken yet. I suppose this means I run somewhat unevenly. Hmm.

The grippiness has worn down . . . and you can see the holes a little better in this shot.

Another shot of the grippiness. It is definitely wearing thin on the ball.

But it looks okay on the heel. I'm not sure how much good that does me since I don't really run on my heals so much anyway.

And there is a small hole in the top of the big toe in the left shoe. Not sure how it got there. It might have been from stubbing it a few times.

I’m not sure how much longer this pair will last me, but I imagine I’ll wear through them by the end of September. And then I’ll go pick up an identical (but new) pair. I wish I knew exactly how many miles these have on them, but I don’t. A ballpark estimate would be close to 1000 over the past year. Not bad. Not bad at all.

  1. You’ve run a thousand miles in less than a year? And I call you my sister?
