      Very good reasons.  Pretty funny and on point with some of the discussions in the general forum last week... (i.e. hippies).
        The funny part is that the shoe companies (Vibram) have forced me to run barefoot. My VFFs got a hole, so I sent them back. They don't have my size, so I have to wait for it to come in. Barefoot it is.
