FiveFingers trainers are gloves for feet

275x250.jpgBizarre looking trainers which fit your feet like a pair of gloves have become a surprise hit.

The FiveFingers trainers are said to mimic what it is like to run barefoot, and some experts say they can reduce injury.

As a result the £80 ultra-thin neoprene shoes have become popular with athletes and gym-goers in the US and Australia.

A spokesperson for the company said: "Unlike conventional shoes that insulate you from your surroundings, FiveFingers footwear deepens your connection to the earth and your surroundings."

Which is all well and good… until you step in a dog mess and feel it squish between your toes.
A spokesperson for FiveFingers added: "The typical human foot is an anatomical marvel of evolution with 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles, and hundreds of sensory receptors, tendons and ligaments.

"FiveFingers enhance your sense of touch and feel, while improving foot strength, balance, agility, and range of motion."
