Can you spot it?
Yep, the elastic tightener on these Vibram Five Finger Classics has been removed!
Tina had posted on the forum about how she finds her five finger Classics much more comfortable now that she's removed the elastic bands. I asked "Toe Girl" Tina to send me a picture of her five fingers mod, and she kindly obliged. Her's what she had to say:
I only wear my Classics at the most loose setting these days as I typically reserve more strenuous activity for my Vibram KSOs. I'd wager that doing such a modification almost requires that you have two pairs of fivefingers (One for heavy activity and another for light use). Of course, if you don't run, sprint, or do other activities in your Classics that involve a lot of leg pumping, this mod might be for you!
Anyone else cut the elastic out of their VFF Classics?
Has anyone tried replacing the elastic with something like a shoestring (This was another idea I had to eliminate the binding effect of the elastic while still providing a secure fit)?
Thanks for sharing, Tina!
