gloves for your...feet?

i'm sooooo embarrassed to say that i'm just now finding out about these. Vibram Five Fingers were voted one of the best inventions in 2007 by Time magazine--and why wouldn't they be? Their website boasts:

"FiveFingers footwear connects you to the earth and your surroundings in a way that is simply not possible in conventional shoes. It puts you in touch with the earth beneath your feet and liberates you to move in a more natural, healthy way. FiveFingers stimulate the muscles in your feet and lower legs to build strength and improve range of motion. Our customers report an increased sense of balance, greater agility, and visibly improved posture."

honestly, i think they are the most awesome shoes i've ever seen. i need to buy a pair before i go on my cruise in a couple weeks b/c they look absolutely perfect for walking around, touring, hiking, exploring....
apparently these are made to bring us closer to the earth, you know, be ONE with nature. not to mention, they're comfortable, come in great colors and are only $70!
idk guys, what do you think?
