And You Thought Crocs Were Ugly...

Well, Ladles and Jellyspoons, I present to you the Vibram Fivefingers shoe:

They are UGLY.  But they are COMFY.  And utilitarian.  To see other styles click here.

I first heard about them a few months ago, but it wasn't until this week that I actually saw someone running in them.  All of a sudden they're everywhere.  And they make my feet happy.  Matt calls my feet flippers because they're paddle-like - which is to say wide and square.  I can't stuff the flipper into most shoes with any level of comfort.  But the Fivefingers Classic is my new best friend.  They don't fall off when I run, either.  They're rad.  You should get some, too (okay, this is half self-centered because I don't want to be the only wingnut walking around in glove/sock/shoes), but they really are awesome.
