Which Are More Hideous: Crocs or Vibram Five Finger Flow?

Crocs have been famously derided as the ugliest shoe on the planet, but I would argue that the Vibram Five Finger Flow shoes, made to contour individual toes, give Crocs a run for their money. What do you think?

OMG. Those feet glove things are hideous/hilarious. Maybe you could use them on Halloween and scare someone. Ha ha ha. You wouldn't catch me dead in those things. As a joke I would wear them with a nice dress on a first date. Just when he reaches his hand to your lap you you cross your legs and then your big monkey feet Vibram sticks out. He retracts his hand and screams in terror. The Crocs are ugly but those Vibrams take the cake.

I love my Crocs, but they're quite ugly, so I usually only wear them to the gym. I used to wear them around the pool during swim season as well, and now I want to try a pair of the Vibrams. I'd say Crocs can be justified because they are really comfortable.

I LOVE Crocs!! I'm a teacher, so being on my feet everyday-- I need some comfy shoes! My students make fun of them on a constant basis; I have several colors of Crocs. And again, I love them. Those haters have no idea what they're talking about.

Crocs are awful, unless they are part of your work uniform, but those Vibrams look as though you've cut the feet off a gorilla. Fug.

I know quite a few runners who have the Vibrams and love them. If you do decide to run in them, though, BE CAREFUL --- your feet need time to adjust.

Crocs are so hideous. And I doubt the majority of people who own them have podiatric problems, otherwise that would be a whole heck of a lot of the population. If you've got issues, try Danskos.

Hideous hideous Crocs. I feel like the Vibrams aren't nearly as prevalent, and thus aren't as offensive to me.

The Vibram five fingers are awesome....and they aren't made for just wearing around in public or the house anyway. They are actually for sports and are supposed to make you feet/legs stronger, improve your balance etc. and to generally make it like your running around barefoot. So if you're at home you shouldn't even wear them, just go barefoot, that's the whole point... they are just to give you some protection instead of trying to run around barefoot outside. I really really want some, they are awesome! And I totally don't think they are ugly at all, I think they look cool! I do think crocs are ugly though, and kind of dumb b/c you can't really walk very well in them....just think if you had to run away from a bad guy...forget would be attacked.

I have three pairs of the Vibrams and *love* the way they look. My peanut toes have elongated since I've begun to wear them and my feet feel more toned. More disclosure: I have two pairs of MBTs. No crocs but mostly because I heard they caused problems for the feet and back.

bella lost credibility points from me. If fab owns a pair of either shoe....well, I don't even want to entertain that thought

The Vibrams are hideous, but... I've been thinking of buying a pair. DON'T JUDGE ME. I hear they're super comfortable and healthy for your feet. I'd probably wear them only at home, though.

They're just shoes, and if they are comfortable, wear them. Who cares what people think about you. I don't think I'd wear them, but only because I have flat feet and it's taken me a loooong time to find shoes, and find a way to keep them lasting, and from making my feet hurt like hell. They are not aesthetically pleasing, but there is way more to life than being concerned about what does or does not look good to people. My mom wears crocs at work, she is a nurse, so she is always on her feet. She loves them. I know someone with the Five Finger shoes and he thinks they are he wears them at the gym and running outside.
