    Now your killing my dream man...

    I should explain they are for free soloing. After climbing in Hawaii a few weeks ago then snorkeling I realized I wanted something better in water then then standard climbing shoes, but better for climbing then crocs. I ended up barefoot swimming, meaning I had to stop to remove my shoes instead of just base jumping while climbing down the rock face (so I wore fins as well, these shoes could also replace snorkeling booties if fins are needed)...

    Encluded Hawaii snorkeling rep...

    They sure do look weird, but I guess they serve a purpose according to some researchers...To Run Better, Start by Ditching Your Nikes | Wired Science | Wired.com

    Tim Ferriss (The Blog of Author Tim Ferriss) did a whole thing on them... they sound like an awesome thing and I want to pick up a pair.

    I always am in sandals and I hate wearing any kind of formal shoes.

    Search on his blog... he did a couple videos on his site comparing different styles of the shoe and talking about the advantages...

    apparently these shoes are more effective at pulling hot random chicks than a cute puppy.

    Havoc don't listen to anyone in regards to those shoes.. they are amazing! I had a pair and wore them every time that I went up to Sedona to hike around. You'll love them and it's the next best thing to being barefoot... they allow your body to work the way it was intended to. Unfortunately for me my Rotty decided that he wanted to use them as a chew toy.

    I have some and I luv them. I mainly use them for the gym and light jogging. I know that I could run much farther than I do with them but i'm kinda scared I guess, I have had stress fractures in my shins before and I don't want that again. If you are looking for something and have an active lifestyle and it involves water or rock climbing or camping or fishing or just about nething or if you just want to turn some heads these shoes are the shyt. I think they are an awesome shoe / sandle cuz there are a few different models. They are a little high on the price I think but hey you get what you pay for. If you do decide to try them out, it takes some getting use to, I suggest reading about them first. I hope this helps anyone intrested in these.
