Vibram is settling a $3.75 million class action lawsuit since they can’t produce evidence that their shoes help “strengthen foot muscles” or “prevent injuries” like they’ve been claiming for years.
I’m so happy seeing Vibrams publicly unmasked as phoney. These shoes are crap and only people in peak athletic health at 18-24 can just barely handle them. Everyone I know under 18 or over 24 who tries wearing these ends up in brutal pain and blaming themselves for failing their shoes when the pain is too much. Of all the times I’ve heard the phrase, “Wait, I can’t walk anymore”, nearly every time it was uttered by a Vibram wearer.
If you were taken by this con and injured by Vibrams too, they’ll eventually be starting a website at fivefingerssettlement.com so you can join the class action lawsuit and get $20-94 in remuneration.
