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:
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?
