I have a pair. Be sure to measure your feet PRECISELY.

Well, I was really curious about them and tempted to try a pair. Then I saw a few people wearing them in public. It was tough but I was able to avoid stopping other people passing by so we could ridicule the wearer en masse. They look especially funny with khakis.

Depends on the guy. If the farthest you've ever run is to the bathroom at Taco Bell, these won't suddenly turn you into an ultra runner.

I saw a guy in SF wearing them the last time I was there. Didn't even know such a thing existed. I wasn't going to laugh at the wearing them, at least not to his face. His arm were the size of my legs, only not as hairy.

But since I am back in NZ I can safely say that they looked gay and I'd never wear them. How the heck can you get your toes into them? I can hardly get my gloves on properly.

The poll didn't have the option I would have picked.

I'm waiting for the steel toed version.

I despise having shit touching the insides of my toes. Hell it took me years before I could stand to wear socks. Might as well drop a wasps nest down the front of my pants for comfort.

Do they make them for webbed toes? Or is that custom?

Looks like a platform to sell socks.

Ran a 5k Saturday night. There was a guy wearing the FLOW version. He hauled ass. I've thought about trying them too.
