True, but for people like me who are sneaker connoisseurs, putting something that aesthetically heinous on your feet is pretty tough. Maybe they're just ahead of their time and we'll all be wearing stuff like that in 30 years. But I doubt it.

I can't imagine that would be very comfortable for people with funky shaped toes, like me. They don't even make them in my size though, so I'll probably never know.

Same here. I wear size 13 and I think that would seriously make my toes cramp up.

Those would be pretty sweet if you spent your spare time as a ninja. For disc golf I bet the soles would last maybe 6 rounds.
