    This was bound to happen sooner or later...

    2013 Goals.......

      They don't look like they quite match up to the VFF's but maybe the competition will bring down the price of VFF's.  That has been a huge hurdle in my lack of purchase.  The other was the fact that my pinky toes are quite crooked.  That combination has me thinking I just might try out the Fila's.

        i think i would definitely try them out first, the whole rigid sole kinda puts me off. not really impressed by the visible design either but im sure in a few months theyll have different ones in every color.

          I'll certainly have to try them on when I see them. They are at a very competitive rice point.

            Huh, interesting.  I think one reason for separation of the toes is prevention of rubbing blisters.  The review doesn't exactly rave about them, but as he says, competition is good. 

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

              An interesting invention...  slightly more appealing than VFF's, however, I prefer my Invisible Shoes (http://www.invisibleshoe.com/ Wink ... they're the closest thing to barefoot, while still offering that layer of protection, and they're a sandal vs an enclosed shoe, so your foot is permitted to move naturally, versus in an enclosed shoe which alters your gait unnaturally like a merrell true glove or VFF or this Fila Stele Toe Shoe. Plus the Invisible Shoes have lots of cool decorative add-ons kind of like Crocs Jibbitz, and you can pick your lace colors, and kind of personalize them.

                Even though I made a pair myself,  comparing them to Crocs does nothing to endear me.
