Funky shoes for the guys

Personally, any sort of shoe that has separations for your toes completely freaks me out. Barefoot, schmarefoot—if I’m wearing shoes, I want there to be a single box area to accommodate all of my toes together. That’s just how I am. But the various high-end shoemakers assuring us that it’s fabulous to have shoes that look like gloves for your feet have started this craze of weird shoes where your toes all get separated.

It’s a good thing I don’t write copy for these sale brochures, I guess. I’m doing quite the selling job, here.

Anyway! If for some reason you like these shoes, it turns out that today over at Woot they have the Fila men’s skeletoes available for just $19.99. Choose from three options, all of which seem to believe men have 4 toes on each foot. Er, I mean, maybe these would bother me less because they don’t separate all the toes? Maybe?

I have no idea. All I know is that these shoes usually go for around $75, so if you’re dying to try ‘em, at least this is a great price.

    I say if you want to be barefoot, BE barefoot. Those shoes are too odd-looking for me, and I imagine are even stinkier and harder to clean than regular shoes, what with the toe pockets.

    Four toe spaces? Are these for cartoon characters? :)

    The 4-toe thing makes sense to me, because I’ve tried these type of shoes on. I found that my last 2 toes had separation anxiety. ;)

    Also, if you are afflicted with the second-toe-longer-than-the-first, you’re going to have a bad time with these type of shoes.
