Running Sandals: Cool or Not?

The other day a runner ran past me (I was jogging, mind you) in a sandal. Stunned at the potential damage this person was doing to her lower body, I searched to find if such a thing as a running sandal actually existed. Turns out a few do exist, and I think I even found the exact shoe the runner sprinted past me in.

Basically a running sandal is a supportive running shoe made into a breathable sandal. The Xtension 3 from Bite ($79.99) even has a toe guard to keep your little piggies safe all the way home. Personally, I can't help but wonder why you wouldn't want to just wear your regular running shoes. Maybe I am missing the greatness that is running sandals, but I think I'll be sticking with my Brooks sneaks until someone convinces me otherwise. Convinced? Then buy them from Maybe you already love running sandals or maybe you hate them, so I'd love to hear from you all....
