So my brother just had his birthday in January and he is really into running, and parkour type of things. So for his birthday he asked for some parkour shoes, but instead he got these Vibram five fingers. They say they are so good for your feet when you run and they can take form of your foot. They are really comfy. They are sort of funny looking in a cool- different way. I think they are awesome! But if you want to buy them you should try them on first to get the size you need because it's the size of your foot and not your regular shoe size. They are a pretty sturdy shoe.
