Well, what can I say, they’re vegan.
I’ve seen these before on a guy once (or another style from their range) and even though it’s been over six months since the incident, I still can’t tell you what I think about them. Apparently they are super comfortable, durable and really good for all kinds of activities from yoga to climbing and other extreme sports and martial arts. On the other hand, well, they look like a foot.
Being the classy girl that I am, I chose to display the stylish black version (thanks, Blavish.com), but you can get all kinds of weird and wacky colours in case just having a shoe shaped like a foot isn’t crazy enough for you.
Most of their shoes this company makes are vegan, though they do make at least one shoe out of kangaroo skin. Personally, I don’t have more of a problem buying from a company that makes shoes out of kangaroos than I do buying from a company that makes shoes out of cows, but I thought I’d mention it because I know some people have a particular problem with Adidas for using kangaroo skin.
You can get these from the Vibram Five Fingers website
