Yes. You just toss them in the washing machine, though.

Till your GF buy you a pair, huh?

I've seen people wear these walking around. Now, if you're running, it's not a big deal but I see people who aren't the running type wearing them with their regular clothes and they look awful... Troll Feet is right. I've heard some people commute with them, too. I guess in SF, it's considered avant-garde but elsewhere, they're just ugly. I have yet to see a gay person wear those though. They tend to have a good sense of taste.

I have a pair. I use them for kayaking in warm water and exploring when I beach the boat.

They are pretty awesome.

I wear moccasins when stalking during early bow season for deer. These Goofy looking things look like they would be good for that. If I checked in a deer wearing them though I would never hear the end of it .

i rock them, but in the super gay blue/gray cammo pattern.

i like light, minimal shoes- these and nike frees are my favorites. they also seem to strengthen my feet and ankle - since i've started wearing less supportive sneakers, i've had way fewer feet and ankle injuries playing sports.

Why do they call them "fingers" when they're clearly "toes"?

Don't look like they'd go over very well in the colder climates.

I cringe at the thought of what they'd roll out to address the Maine & Alaska market. Sasquatch feet?

I know a girl who wears them for fencing practice. She seems pretty light on her feet.

Well specifically I'd just need two of the toes cut out in the middle and stitched together w/o a raised seam in the middle.

The rest could be fine, except I also have sort of tiny 5th toes. That could cause problems perhaps.
