It hurts
But you get more careful over time which is a good thing.

I say don't kick rocks.

That'd be your primary form of protection.

I bowed to pressure and bought a pair about a month ago. The first week I could only stand them a couple of hours a day then I had to get back into my comfy shoes (Merrill Mocs). Little by little my Mocs became more and more torture and my feet craved getting back into the goofy assed Hobbit feet.

Now, after only a month I am totally convinced. My feet are more comfortable, even standing on cold concrete building your shocks in the shop. They may be snake oil, and I KNOW they are making an astronomical profit on what is in the construction, but I like them.

And even this aging fat ass gets lots of girls coming up to me everywhere asking about the shoes. If I were single, there would be plenty of opportunities to start conversations.

I regularly wear my KSOs for running offroad. and the cool thing is, you actually "learn'' to avoid rocks to a point where you realy don't have to think about it anymore. Fascinating.

If I could buy them made from Nomex they would be my racing shoes. They are awesome in the car.

Bike, I wouldn't. Need a solid footbed for that.
