gopher321: I'm guessing money traded hands, and the co. that makes those said, "Please wear these in public as much as possible."
bayoubruce: Have a pair just like them and there great
RexTalionis: He seems comfortable, so who gives a shiat?
Relatively Obscure: "Why the hell would you wear those ridiculous toe shoes, Danny Glover?""Because I'm motherfarking Danny Glover. That's why.""... Touché, Danny Glover. Touché."
pkellmey: I'm not understanding the FAIL tag, submitter. Are you saying that being a successful actor keeps him from wearing whatever he wants at public events honoring him?
MightyPez: I bought a pair last month and wear them all the time. The exceptions being formal events (weddings) and dates.
GetaLife: [3.bp.blogspot.com image 400x300]/hot and smelly, like the shoes
TravisBickle62: Vibrams are for Paleo dweebs, stay in your basement and out of the gym or I'll drop a 25 pound plate on your foot
MightyPez: Some people are amused by them, some people are curious, and some have an irrational hatred of them.
Alphax: What the hell? Never seen anything like those, though the color seems to go with the rest of it.
SVenus: Wife wouldn't let me buy them after I became obsessed with these.I now have a new piece of ammunition.and thanks for the reviews.
metztli: I like being barefoot but I don't like shredding my feet since I live in a city. These are awesome shoes.Even better, a lot of issues I was having when I ran in my Nikes have gone away completely after doing my runs in these.I don't care if people think they look stupid - I would much rather have comfortable feet and be unfashionable than be fashionable and have torture devices strapped to my feet when it comes to just bumming around.These and my danskos make my feet happy.
Alphax: If they're comfortable, I should check them out. I've got enough foot pain already. Granted, my employers might not like me wearing them on the job, but I can get away with a few things alone on 3rd shift.
unicron702: Look, the man has a Predator kill under his belt, he can do whatever he wants.
KellyX: I've very interested in these, especially all the reviews people have given in this thread... My only issue with them is I like wearing steel toe, just in case. Those look like if someone stepped on your toes it would hurt even more than traditional non-steel toe shoes...

Those look like if someone stepped on your toes it would hurt even more than traditional non-steel toe shoes...Very little to no protection on the top of the feet. It's a thin spandex fabric. The protection is on the bottom of the feet and the front of the toes and that's it. If someone steps on your foot or you drop something on them, it hurts.
realityVSperception: Dear starpulse,Not everybody has a high speed connection. I'm not going to hang out while you try to jam some jackass full screen video ad down my throat. If you can't load the page within 10-15 seconds- I'm gone. There's nothing your site has to deliver that is worth me waiting around more than that. The fluff you post is readily available elsewhere.
INeedAName: unicron702: Look, the man has a Predator kill under his belt, he can do whatever he wants.This. Plus, I'm pretty sure he helped the Predator hide Gary Busey's body.
dothemath: And if you want to run barefoot then just do it and stop being a pussy.
Barricaded Gunman: Relatively Obscure: "Why the hell would you wear those ridiculous toe shoes, Danny Glover?""Because I'm motherfarking Danny Glover. That's why."Because if I was wearing normal shoes nobody would notice me.
karnal: This little piggy has Plantar fasciitis - This little piggy has corns - This little piggy has Bunions - This little piggy has calluses - and this little piggy went.......wee wee wee all the way to the podiatrist[kellylangston.com image 640x962]
Freakin Rican: those things are the dumbest things around.what i hate most is seeing most is these guys wearing them in the gym working out.doing squats, running, cycyling. i mean doing things that you really should have some support.i mean just to look cool? you look like a fool
afghanistanimation: This weekend.[i853.photobucket.com image 640x382]
Mike Chewbacca: Vibrams actually help with plantar fasciitis, as well as back and knee pain. And you don't have to be a runner to benefit from them.Also, if he was wearing a pair of $40 Converse, would this thread even exist? Of course not. But haters gonna hate toe shoes, I guess.[t1.gstatic.com image 254x198]
Tad_Waxpole: I'm sure you run barefoot all the time, don't you tough guy?
Mike Chewbacca: Also, if he was wearing a pair of $40 Converse, would this thread even exist? Of course not. But haters gonna hate toe shoes, I guess.
jgilb: afghanistanimation: This weekend.[i853.photobucket.com image 640x382]Nice view. Where was that taken, if you don't mind ?
Dwight_Yeast: Mike Chewbacca: Also, if he was wearing a pair of $40 Converse, would this thread even exist? Of course not. But haters gonna hate toe shoes, I guess.$40? I've never paid more than $25 for a pair of Chuck Taylors.
lisarenee3505: Why you should never wear these dorky-ass shoes for running (or anything else if you ever expect to attract a mate) (new window)\'nuff said
CastorPimp: are you trolling? I hope so.
thomps: i was under the impression that he had gotten to old for this shiat.
braedan: Hello shoe folk,I'm a novice runner and I'll be doing my first 5k in about a month. I've been training for it in a pair of new balance sneakers, but they're starting to wear out. What would suggest as a cheap sneaker for an off road 5k trail?Thanks!!
sattizahn: ...I have nothing against Vibrim's, but I'm surprised at people who think that only minimalist footwear leads to proper form.Vibrim's doesn't magically change your form to eliminate heel strike. It can help, but I have just as great as form in my $30 blowout-sale Asics from shoe carnival...
Samwise Gamgee: You people seriously go hiking in these things?I've probably walked more in my life than ten random people combined. Serious about that. Walking great distances has been a sort of weird hobby of mine since I was a kid. When I was sixteen I walked to a neighboring city, sixty miles away. Yes, walked. What can I say, I do my best thinking while walking. Done most of the Appalachian Trail. Walked from the beach, to the bay, to the beach, and back to the bay again, in San Francisco... in one day. Yeah, seven miles each way.Eventually, I destroyed the arches in my feet (yeah, they tore in half) and my knees. My foot arches now have big lumps of scar tissue in them, and when I first stand up in the morning, I feel like I'm being stabbed in the arches with knives as the blood rushes to the farked up areas and pain is induced. The reason why this happened to me? Well, because I'm a crazy-ass walker, and due to the LACK OF PROPER ARCH SUPPORT in shiatty shoes. These ridiculous toe-shoes have, as far as I can tell, practically zero arch support.Other foot injuries I've incurred include not once, but twice having my shoe skewered by random plant-barbs. Bamboo or something, I don't know. All I know is that the stem, trunk, or whatever of two random plants - or the same insidious plant, twice - have managed to drive right through the rubber soles of my shoes and spear my foot, deeply, requiring a trip to the doc for tetanus shots in case that was a random rusty nail, or something. After the second injury I switched to boots with steel plates in the arches.Then there's the sprained ankles, which need no explanation. But it really sucked ass when it happened on a deep hike in the woods, and I had to fashion a makeshift walking stick and hobble my way back to civilization. Because I wasn't wearing footwear with proper ankle support at the time.But, whatever. You guys enjoy your 'comfy' footwear. I still think you're farking idiots. When the helicopter has to fly you to safety, there will be a ridiculous photograph of you, on a stretcher, with one farked-up foot, and one good foot that's wearing a stupid-ass, useless, dangerous, ugly, but COMFY! toe-shoe-thing.
