Running Shoes That Look Like Feet — Good, Bad or Ugly?
Now that the weather is finally warming up, many runners are starting to take to the streets instead of the gym. So when you see someone in these running shoes that are shaped like human feet, do you double take like we do?
Now they may be great for running, but they look absolutely hideous. For sure not a casual going out sneaker -- or for that matter go anywhere but the gym. We aren't personal trainers, so we can't talk about the benefit, but this is what we got the Vibram Fivefinger website.
With today's athlete in mind, Vibram FiveFingers has raised the intensity with the Vibram FiveFingers KMD Sport. This aggressive multisport design inherits what we love about the KSO with functional improvements that appeal to the most active fitness enthusiast. For the first time ever, Vibram introduces a stitch-free, seamless 2mm footbed to reduce friction. Heel and instep hook-and-loop closures help secure the stretch nylon upper to the contours of your foot-just like a second skin.
Even with all this fitness-science stuff being thrown in our faces, we aren't sold because these look ridiculous. So our vote goes to ugly. What say you?
