Re: ugly but neat shoes may improve health and posture

They remind me of those water shoes that kids wear to the beach. When I read the title I was thinking you were going to post those one sneakers that are rounded at the bottom and give you a work out while wearing them, like the Masai Barefoot Technology sneakers. To me those are odd looking sneakers.

I think they're fine for bumming around on the weekends, with jeans or sweats.

Re: ugly but neat shoes may improve health and posture

I've worn the five fingers. Several friends are into them. A few co-workers wear what Smartmom posted. The five fingers feel too weird only because something is between my toes. I have some sensory issues with things like that and tags touching my neck etc. The people that like them swear by them

I think I'm with Pizzle, the feel of something between my toes would freak me out. It'll be funny once they take off and ya see everyone wearing em at a mall or something though.

so I shouldn't think about getting you toe socks for your birthday (which is Friday)?

See that is why I couldn't wear them. I've had issues in the past with plantar fasciitis so I need to wear shoes that have more support. In fact I can't wear flat shoes unless I want to spend time in pain. Sad
