Intriguing idea. Expensive, ugly shoes, but intriguing nonetheless.

There's another company that made that style of shoe first...can't remember the name. A couple of the old women at work wear them (and swear by them). I looked for them on Ebay when they told me they paid close to 200 bucks a pair, and we found them in the 60-80 range in abundance...some kind of African name I think???

0 help...sorry. :D

I had a pair of Earth's once...they're supposedly made to emulate the feeling of walking barefoot in the sand. They were pretty funky looking, but I'll admit that they were dang comfy.

Those MBTs look comfy too, but they look too much like these bad boys, IMO:

Did you ever get these Jesse???

I should be picking up my vibram KSOs from REI tomorrow and I'm wicked excited. I'm afraid I will love em up and want a more "barefoot" feel all the time (stupid office dresscode will probably not allow the five fingers). I've been looking at some of the Vivo Barefoot stuff but it's crazy expensive and I'd like to get a trustworthy review first.
