Barefoot Shoes

Friday, November 19th, 2010

A couple weekends ago we were at Wegmans doing some food shopping. While in the sub-shop/Chinese food area we saw a woman walking around in what looked like a pair of toe socks, but they weren't socks, they were shoes! We kind of looked at each other cross-eyed and went on with life.

Then out of the blue on this week's episode of Weeds I see Guillermo wearing a pair of them! Apparently they're called Vibram FiveFingers and are an athletic type shoe that "give you all the health benefits of running or walking barefoot without the actual physical risks of going barefoot in a modern environment."

Gillermo's stupid shoes

Nancy and Gillermo

I'm not really sure what health benefits they're talking about but I find walking or running barefoot rather uncomfortable. Either way, these shoes just look ridiculous on normal people and even worse on Mexican gangsters.

I saw those a couple of times this summer. I read an article about them in some magazine and the all of a sudden they were popping up.

The first time I saw them in wegmans I thought they were those shoes you wear in the ocean...

Those look so comfortable! I love toe socks/having things between my toes. I may have to invest. I don't know if I could wear them out in public as shoes, though.

My chiropractor said going barefoot is the best for your feet.

Do you ever watch Dual Survival? Cody has been barefoot since the 80s.

You could wear them mowing the lawn!
Yeah, that guy on Dual Survival is nuts. I saw him walking around in the snow in bare feet when I was flipping through channels one day.
