    They'll be your "sno-cats".

     I ran half my last race on my left foot!               I don't always roll a joint, but when I do, I usually roll my ankle


      make some huaraches out of cats, preferably alive. 


      Had considered making a slipper out of my long haired dachshund. Hadn't considered cats, but claw-cleats might be useful.



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

        I didn't see this answer previously, so here's another angle:


        Every gym is going to need some type of insurance to operate, and I'll bet that the insurance companies require the shoes. Most likely, the origin is people dropping weights on their feet, not toes getting caught in treadmills. My school gym requires close-toed shoes, which excludes all forms of sandals/tevas/etc. for this very reason. I don't know how a tennis shoe will protect me from a 20lb weight, but anyway. 


        However, by that same description, VFF's should be permissible
