Only an opinion, but it's a fashionable kind of silly

I know several folks who wear them a lot, including
for walking as well as running. Many podiatrists will
recommend them I am told, as an excellent way to
develop healthy functional running style.

Barefoot running is increasingly popular over the last
decade; of course Vibrams are a great way to protect
the foot whilst so doing.

Whatever anyone says, my perception is that such a
style is suited only to those fortunate folk with a
naturally balanced gait. I would never consider such
footwear as although I am not large, my footstrike is
very heavy (wheres some quite chunky folks can run
like a feather); also my one tibia is 12mm shorter; I
need considerable orthotic support to avoid injury.

I would advise anyone to seek a gait analysis
consultation before embarking on such a fashion/sports
