The Birth of Holy FiveFingers

BUY VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS

Steel Punch Necessary Holy Object Creator

August 30th, 2006

Howdy Folks

Okay, I got a little out-of-control and put some holes (35 to be exact) in a pair of FFs using a steel punch.

I am doing some testing today in a desperate attempt to create a FF that can go 100 miles in heat without getting too moist.

Already, I can say that the HOLY FF is a lot cooler just wearing indoors. Later today I will give it a good test run: one FF holy (right foot), one not (left foot).

I think I might be on to something here.

Holy #$@%!

August 31st., 2006

Howdy Folks

Okay, I took my holy FFs out for a tough 12 mile test run yesterday. Lots of steep trail, lots of elevation gain and loss, some single-track and sandy areas. The holy FFs performed well.

I added more holes (as you can see). I think that if the holes were bigger on the inside and narrowed, cone-like, to the outside, even less dust would enter, but as they are, not much got in compared with the non-holed FF.

One very cool thing about the holy FF was the feel. The holes added just a little stretchiness. The stretchiness really felt nice when braking and on tight turns. Really would like to explore this more.

Sure, I got out of control...and it was fun...

Question for ya, Ted.
Have you discussed the "holy theory" with the folks at Vibram? And can you share any more info about the new styles which are coming out in Feburary? I am dying to buy a pair but am waiting to see what else is coming down the pike.

Hi Ted. Will Vibram use your "holy" idea in any upcoming shoes?

Yes, they know about my holy FFs.

The Classic FFs are fine for all-around use. The new Sprint coming out next year will be more adjustable.

The good thing about either model is that they are made well and should last a long time. Plus they are more comfortable than any other shoe I have ever worn, and they allow the foot to be the foot.
