I’ll pass. I have enough trouble getting laid as is.
I’d love to see the forensic detectives going over the crime scene where the Vibram Fivefingers Gang has struck again. “Hmmm, this seems to be the work of a gang of barefoot aliens.”
I have so much trouble with my feet/back/legs/knees, I’m going to give these a try. Having tried most major brands of work boots, expensive shoes & inserts, a variety of service industry style waiter shoes etc – none seems to help.
Just wonder how they’ll work for driving stick, it’s rather nice to have the hard sole of a shoe for kicking the clutch etc. We’ll see!
Hmm…are they any good for people with erratically shaped feet? They look interesting, but less than ideal for people whose second toes are longer than their big toes and other such common oddities.
do they have a cloven hoof version?
Ha! Hobbit Feet without the hair? Tsk tsk tsk
These are fantastic! my second toe is mucho longer than my first. they still work for me.
Hmmm, I may have to get a set of these. I wear combat boots almost exclusively, so when I try to go barefoot I have virtually no callouses. And I have rare enough opportunities to go barefoot that I never manage to develop said callouses.
The fact that there’s stuff between the toes would probably drive me nuts… Otherwise cool.
one doesn’t have to go to major extremes…. lets face it, most running shoes are purchased by buyers who have no idea what to find in a running shoe. But if you go to a honest running store, where they match the shoe to your foot and not your fashion taste or trends, you’ll be surprised. I thought I’d have walked out with a spongy pair of cushioned shoes, but instead I walked out with a pair of brooks, not very padded, but designed for stability.
