ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the competitive edge on the materials, construction and design of the footwear products of Vibram Five Fingers in the U.S. Michael Martin, the national sales manager at Vibram, cites that the minimalist design of their footwear differentiates them from their running specialty competitors because it allows the whole foot to move. Moreover, the five toe design separates the toes which provides independent range of motion.
