Title: Most Dudely of foot wear
Post by: BikerDude on June 14, 2018, 07:00:51 AM
I never would have thought it but I've gotten hooked on the Vibram 5 fingers.
The fact that they are high on the WTF factor is just a plus. Once you try em you'll never go back.
Wave of the future Dudes...

They look like they'd be a pain in the ass to get on and that they'd make my feet sweat wearing them.  How are you finding them so far dude? I've always been a huge fan of anything that's easy to kick on or off and something breathable that doesn't make my feet sweaty and stinky.  What's your review of these contraptions? And for the record, I still put on my shoes manually.

That is the down side. The Vibrams are very difficult to get on.
And they do stink if you go sockless. "What's the smell man?"
There are several other brands that compromise nicely.
The Fila Skeletoes are easier and currently they are my everyday camp kicks.
They put the pinky toe and the one next to it in one big toe hole.

Also the body gloves which are pretty cool. They put the last 3 in one toe.
Big thing behind the minimalist footwear thing is that if you have aching knees they help.
Most shoes change the angle that your foot hits the ground which in the long run is very responsible for knee pain.
The angle from ball of foot to heel to ankle to knee all plays to together. If you change that it puts a lot of torque on your knees.
It would seem that a thick padded heal to land on would help but it's the opposite. It fucks it up.
These all get you back in balance. It's all the rage with runners.
Wave of the future. Not just some eastern thing.

Are these shoes 100 % electronic only or can they be used during actual coitus?
