    hmm the feeling of walking barefoot while not getting dirty....
    STUPID if you want to walk barefoot walk barefoot i don`t think it would have any effect if you were walking on glass with that, so just stick to your own barefoot feet

    I want a pair, but only for hiking in the woods which I do a lot of.
    I can very much see why these would be perfect for the woods. But they`re probably not durable enough.
    These are more sandles than shoes. There are great sandles out there for this sort of thing, much better than these.

    the only way i see those working is if they custom make each pair for the buyer. by making molds of the persons feet and what not.

    Yeah, stupid. Amazingly stupid, though. Gotta give them credit for going the extra mile with that stupid idea. But gotta take credit for nobody at the office stopping to say `HOLY F*CK I CAN`T BELIEVE WE ARE ACTUALLY GOING THROUGH WITH THIS STUPID F*CKING IDEA!!!`

    Then again, it sounds like fun to work at a crazy place like that. I`m torn.

    "1. The exhilarating joy of going barefoot without leaving yourself exposed"

    exposed to what? O.o
    why not just wear sandals?
    good god this is a dumb idea. if they take off like those foamy-cheesy looking shoes did.....

    I don[`t see why they wouldn`t work.

    The grip on them doesn`t look very good, but they seem to be made out of the same stuff Nike`s U-soc is made out of, so I don`t see why so many people are saying they "wouldn`t work".

    They`re stretchy to an extent, which means unless you have particularly weird feet they should have enough give for the average person I`d think.

    Vs Barefoot:
    If you step on a stone in these, it`s not likely going to breach skin. They have a sole.

    Vs Sandals:
    I hate running in sandals. The opening at the front can snag and you often get a collection of pebbles/leaves in the sandal.

    Vs Shoes:
    Personally, I`d like these better than trainers, but really not seeing why they`d be much better than my lightweight running shoes.

    Isn`t the point of being barefoot that you don`t feel shoes constricting your feet? It seems that these would feel even more constricting than regular shoes.

    Baalthazaq, it`s not so much that it wouldn`t work, it`s just there is no real reason for these things.

    It`s kinda like the anti shirt and those Japanese/Brazilian ultra low jean dealies.

    Just an answer to the question `WHY?` is what they are lacking, not functionality.

    It`s really all a taste thing, but I stand by that they are stupid. I like boots.

    The testimonials are saying they give a better "feel" when you`re running and whatnot... I`d love to try out a pair and see for myself.

    $70.... that`s not that bad.

    Holy poo, I had no idea the definition of barefooting I had been using up to this point was so woefully inadequate. Thank you Vibram Five Fingers for informing me that I need your $70 product to be properly barefoot. I`ll never simply take my shoes off again!

    I go barefoot without spending any money, in fatc I save money by not buying shoes, I only have a pair of boots for conditions that do not allow/would not be appropriate for bare feet. Otherwise, I wear nothing on my feet, and the connection is made by feeling the ground beneath your soles, not through little air venst in the sides or having the flexibility, it`s feeling the textures, the wind, rain, and in the knowledge your feet are completely bare and free.

    Just take your sheos and socks off. Public or private.

    I`ve developed callouses on my feet, just so I could walk barefoot on gravel and such... This is for sissies. :P
    On the other hand, just get a good pair of Birkenstocks. They look decent, they last hella long time and they`re close enough to walking barefoot that they`re pretty much all I wear spring-autumn.

    The idea of being able to spread my toes as I walk is really appealing; toes are for stability, people! :D

    Downside? No way I`m spending seventy clams on a shoe I don`t want to be seen in on the streets. I`m just not a "keep a pair of sculptural feet-casings in my purse just in case I feel the need to do some yoga" kind of gal. And I`d demand to try them on first, too. My tosies deserve a glovelike fit if they`re going to be asked to parade around in something that bizzarre.
