When did you first discover FiveFingers? In 2015 when I decided to commit to restoring any feet and switch to the most functional footwear I could find
Favorite pair and why: V-Alpha. The most versatile, comfortable and well-built pair I have used to date. Can be used for any activity and I love the new material used in the upper
What’s your passion: The continual quest to learn to be a better mover, optimize my flesh machine and help others understand how to do the same (starting at the feet)
How have FiveFingers changed your life (if they have!): VFF’s have been crucial in improving my foot health & function and opened my eyes to the true potential of human footwear and the benefits that come from wearing optimal shoes.
What's the most popular question you get about FiveFingers? Will they hurt my feet?
What would you like to see in FiveFingers' designs in the future? Implementing innovative materials to achieve an even more minimal shoe, a model with an embedded impact sensor to gather data from runners about their impact forces to correlate with running technique.
Name 3 people you most admire: My mother, Elon Musk, Marcus Aurelius
What accomplishment are you most proud of? Finding purpose in my work and deciding to live a life of service to others
What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever been? Byron Bay, Australia
If you could eat only 3 foods for the rest of your life, what would they be? That’s a tough one, I like food too much to play favourites but off the top of my head I would say Cashews, grass-fed beef jerky and avocados
What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done? I wouldn’t call myself courageous but waking up every morning and persevering to grow TFC in the face of obstacles takes some degree of courage (some days much more than others)
What is the best piece of advice you’ve received? Do what makes you happy
What else should we know about you? That about sums it up
