Vibram Five Finger Shoes

When I first learned of Vibram Five Finger Shoes, I didn't know what to make of it. However, BF was rather intrigued with the idea of going almost barefoot while running and walking about town. I have learned it is the new rage now. With this in mind, BF showed off his new Vibram Five Finger shoes to me the other day. According to Savvy Guy, these shoes are rather comfortable, although it is harder to just slip the shoes on and off since the design is like a glove. The pair above is good for easy walking about town or at home.
This pair with thicker rubber bottom on the other hand is good for running and exercising. The design and color are rather unique.  Honestly,  I am still on the fence at this new shoe rage. To me it is still slightly strange wearing FOOT GLOVES walking or running about town. However, as I do like to walk barefoot in the house, I am not against trying this while running about town in the future. I wonder if it is stylish to attend Chanel Trunk Show in them? What do you think of Vibram Five Finger Shoes?

  2. That has to be the weirdest looking foot trend I've seen! I can understand if you were snorkeling and needed rubber shoes, but for a quick Starbucks run? Don't think so!

  3. These shoes freak me out. I actually posted about them on my blog, like 18 months ago. I saw a guy at church wearing them. Not OK.

  8. To be completely honest, those look hideous! Some things that are comfortable are NOT acceptable to wear out in public.

  17. A friend of mine has a pair and swears by them for her weight training that she does and even some running... i am relatively freaked out by the "look" of them, but could get past it if the comfort factor was greater!

    :) Some FUNky colors avail too! :)

  18. haha they are really weird but definitely more for function than form! I have read several studies saying that this type of shoe is the most natural for those wanting to do running training so I would definitely wear something like these!
