FiveFingers Shoes: Cool or Not?

You were born barefoot and the FiveFingers Sprint Shoe ($80.00) encourages you to walk that way because it enhances your natural walking motion.

Also the shoes gently spread your toes to strengthen foot muscles, increase range of motion, and improve general foot health. They stimulate muscles in the feet and lower legs for greater balance, agility and strength and (yup, there's more) they also help straighten your spine, improve posture, and reduce lower back pain. They are comfortable and quick drying with a good gripping bottom, making them good for: Light hiking, trekking, traveling, fitness training, yoga, Pilates, sailing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding and fishing. Interested? Then buy them from FiveFingers.com.




All that technical talk aside, do you think they're cool?

I love walking barefoot, but those look awefully uncomfortable. Like toe socks: I have having stuff between my toes.

I would wear them if they were comfy. I like the concept. I added them to my wishlist! I kinda think they're cute anyway.

If they work then they're a great idea, but I still wouldn't wear them in public.

Well...Maybe. They would probably rub your toes wrong though.

It's a cool idea, but couldn't the have it look normal on the outside but actually have the toe splitters on the inside? I think they would sell more if they looked like normal shoes.

They are VERY ugly, but they really just make me laugh... they're more comical than offensive.

i would want to try them out before dropping that much on them, they better be hella comfy and i would NOT wear them to class or anything for fear of being ridiculed

Say the hell what? Come again? I do not care if they make me look like Andrea Lima, I got to pass....

I think they're cool, if they actually improve your posture and stuff. Unfortunately I, like Molly, have a set of webbed toes on each foot, so I don't think they'd work for me!

Gross!

They look interesting, and the benefits from wearing the shoe seem appealing...BUT it may just be too far out there for me to actually wear!

I couldn't wear them because I have webbed toes (well, a pair on each foot at least). Tear.

So funny. I have a pair of nike's that have the one big toe thing. I still haven't figured out what the point is, but they are really comfortable.
