Vibram Fivefingers

Vibram Fivefingers sounds like a character from Lord of the Rings..


Vibram Fivefingers are outdoor sandals with individual toes. Wearing them is said to mimic the feeling of going barefoot, without the blisters and no-shoes/no-service hassles.

There's an extremely fine line between comfort and an egregious fashion faux pas. This shoe my dear sir and I use the term shoe loosely has breached that line.

Mario Prada is rolling in his grave.

Well that depends if it's Fahrenheit or Celsius. :P

I agree it does look ugly (fugly, even) but, I think they made it as attractive as they could, given that concept of modelling it on a human foot. I mean, if you want really ugly to the point I'd never wear one, you need not look further than sandals.

This I would wear, but just for the sheer dorkiness of the thing and possibly the conversations it would start.

Ya3 to the power of 890.

Sock-like gloves are very popular in winter, in Egypt, and are combined with sandals - which is in itself a separate offence.

Hmmm...socks with sandals is a capital offence. You've heard of the fashion police? Well, I think it's high time we put together a fashion firing squad.

And its the shooters who'd get the blindfolds, just so they don't have to witness whichever fashion foible the condemned is being executed for..

Uff I meant glove-like socks. I'm a moron.

With you on the fashion firing squad.
