Thanks to my buddy Wendybel for this linky :) It’s probably the best website ever for cleaning STANK out of VFFs. THANKS!! I’ll be picking out a few and trying them out tonight.
Vibram Five Fingers can stink. Indeed, “VFF stank” — the “Vibram Five Fingers of Funk” — is such a pervasive problem that VFF fans so afflicted with smelly Vibram Five Fingers are often left wondering, “Are those strangers looking at me because I’m wearing five-toed shoes or because my five-toed shoes reek?”
The funkiness of Five Fingers (and how to eliminate it) was one of the first discussions on theBirthdayshoes.com forum back in June 2009, a thread that has since grown to thirteen pages of “solutions,” soaks, pre-washes, and other inventive means of getting the odor out of everyone’s favorite five-toed foot gloves.
In an effort to consolidate all the methodology under one roof, and with the understanding that these methods fall within the realm of self-experimentation, below you’ll find a veritable compendium of information about how to clean your Vibram Five Fingers.
