July 2012: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Vibram regarding its marketing of Five Fingers footwear.  The complaint alleges that the company’s “health benefit claims are false and deceptive because FiveFingers are not proven to provide any of the health benefits beyond what conventional running shoes provide….  Indeed, running in FiveFingers may increase injury risk as compared to running in conventional running shoes, and even when compared to barefoot running.”  (Safavi v. Vibram USA, Inc., et al., Case No. 12-cv-5900, C.D.Ca.)
