I was one of the lucky blogger to have been invited to the Vibram Five Fingers Media Launch that happened on September 22, 2010 at the Metropolitan Club in Rockwell and I was surprised that they are giving a pair of VFF’s to ALL that was invited!
The event was hosted by Reema Chanco and was supported by different sports fanatics and athletes, starting with Jay Valencia giving some tips on the benefits of barefoot running and how it can correct your form naturally followed by a demo on the treadmill.
This was followed by a demonstration of using VFF’s by the Philippine Kettlebell Club, a new fitness program introduced here in the Philippines which is a centuries-old Russian training tool that resembles like a bowling ball or cannonball with a handle on it, I just recently found out about this and might do a little research about this new Kettlebell training program soon.
Barefootwareinc.com president Carlos Abad and Cherry Ermita Head of marketing talked about the Vibram technology and introduced the 5 Vibram models that is now available here in the Philippines, the Vibram Classic, Vibram Sprint, Vibram KSO (Keep Stuff Out) and the running specific models Vibram Bikila and the Vibram Speed.
Other athletes and coaches like Lorraine Lapus (surfing), Corey Wills (Yoga), Joseph Pagulayan (Capoerista), Ronald Declarador (Ultramarathoner) also provided their valuable insights on how to leverage Vibram Five Fingers in their respective sports.
All in all, it was a fun filled, very informative and successful event, did I mention already that I got a free pair of Vibram KSO?
Grab a pair at the VFF kiosk located at Level 1, Powerplant Mall Rockwell Center, Makati City, Philippines (at the bridgeway near Anne Klein)
kakainggit ka nman… hehehe
i'm planning to buy VFF in the future to… maybe a christmas gift to myself =)… will wait for your review
me 2 i want to buy vff, pero isip ko super bahu cguro ng fingers sa paa kasi pagmatagal na gamit and dapat five fingers din socks. hirap i wash yan sulok ng daliri nia.
@tootski, vff advises to use denture cleaners to remove the stink out. another user suggest to turn it inside out if you want a more thorough cleaning. if you want to opt for toe socks, injinji is a good option. coach jay was wearing one earlier
kainggit. want a VFF too. :)
il buy one of vff kso promise!!! just dont know when but promise it wont take that long maybe on weekends!!! yupee!!! :) i love it! :)
ok gud ill take one magkanu kaya ang isa?

I saw this product launch at Solar sports. From then on, I really wanted to get myself a pair of VFF. Unfortunately, I live in Davao and stores here still don't have VFF.. :(
i went to Rockwell yesterday to buy my partner his dream shoes as a birthday gift but there is no five fingers store, a guard told us its no longer open =(
is there any other store here in manila where i could buy the dream shoes of my partner? is the store in Rockwell wont be back/open again? hope it will soon because that is his birthday wish that i want to give.
I entirely agree with you about this matter. Good post. Already bookmarked for future reference.
