trust me on this these are NOT a fashion or even anti fashion statement on my part.

I get hellish shin splints, and sore legs, probably caused by running shoes (forced incorect running posture) and have been advised to barefoot run but with the amount of shite on the ground here that just isnt an option. Hence the nearest thing, these ridiculous looking shoe thingys

I could imagine they would be quite dangerous if you were missing a toe or two

Not being funny here, but as a bit of a wanabee athlete myself, how the **** do they benefit you...

Apart from the obvious kudos of jogging around looking like a spacker on acid

yup you will look like a twat, but google barefoot running and POSE running for info mate, (go to crossfit.com while your at it, reckon it might be down your street)

in a nutshell when running in traditional running shoes you land heel first which causes massive strain to joints and bones, we never used to run landing heel first, it wasnt until nike invented a billion dollar industry and thick rubber heels that we did, shoes like these force you to land on the balls of your feet, basically you get less injuries, more energy efficient etc, and if it means no shin spilnts for me then i dont care how stupid they look, shin splints ****ing hurt
