Vibram FiveFingers shoes

Not sure what to make of these. For starters its seems like they’ve been dubbed with a complete misnomer. FiveFingers? Surely FiveToes. Or am I missing something? And then there’s the matter of how they look. Despite my problem with the whole fingers/toes issue, I think they’re cool in a weird, morbid way – I can’t help but think of severed feet when I look at them. They are just a tad creepy, aren’t they?

The idea behind the "shoes" is that they "offer the exhilarating joy of going barefoot with the protection and sure-footed grip of a Vibram sole." Somehow I don’t think that wearing something on your feet is in anyway similar to going barefoot, for obvious reasons, but I’ll ignore their marketing ploys because I like the product. Which is the same sentiment I have for Coca-Cola.
