    I need a new pair of sneakers and am thinking about getting a pair of Vibram toe shoes. I love being barefooted so I figure these would be a socially acceptable alternative. Any experience as far as wear or comfort?

    My flame suit is on as I expect my sexuality to be debated. :c

    Like these except all black......

    even if those were the most comfortable shoes ever, i could never wear them. people who wear them look like freaks and monkeys.

    The "fashion" aspect means nothing to me. I'm a broken down train wreck anyway......I just want to feel like I'm not wearing shoes (or closer to it than traditionals) and keep my ape feet happy.

    I use a pair kayak fishing. They grip well on slippery rocks. :dontknow: if I would want to wear them on the street. They are difficult to put on.

    I don't know; I've heard that they cause hairline fractures in the bones in your feet. Plus, as has been mentioned earlier, they're v. difficult to put on.
