Everywhere we go-o people wanna know-o
Where did your husband get those butt ugly shoes?
Yes, those are shoes. They're called Fivefingers and they're part of a new trend called "barefooting." All the cool kids are doing it.
Vibram, one of the companies that makes them (in addition to dog boots and dog toys that look a lot like their shoes), claims "Like the rest of the body, to keep our feet healthy, they need to be stimulated and exercised."
Gah! Some days I don't have time to poo, never mind worry that my damn feet are stimulated.
Chuck loves—loves—his gloved feet. Personally, I think they make him look like a cross between a monkey and robo-man. Every time I see them I start humming Mr. Roboto. And yuck, having each of my toes separated like fingers in a glove would drive me nuts. What if one of your toes is grossly enlarged? What if you step on a sharp rock? Or in a mound of snow?
Or have webbed feet? (Sorry, no shoes for you.)
Having said all that, there is one amazing detail to these shoes that prevents me from "misplacing" them: They are machine washable.

What about you? Do you, like, barefoot?
